Hubert de Givenchy on the Rue Fabert, Interior Design by Charles Sévigne, Designed in 1968-69, Part 2, Salon: On the left is the magnificent amoire by Andre-Charles Boulle which M. de Givenchy bought from the estate of Misia Sert, and which prompted the complete redesign of this apartment. On the far left is a glimpse of the Ashburnham bureau-plat, also by Andre-Charles Boulle, and considered by some to be the finest example of its type in existence. Between the windows, above the banquette, is Miro's "L'Oiseau Migrateur", 1968. The floor-to-ceiling bronze-mirror screen behind the armoire was requested by M. de Givenchy and designed by M. Sévigne. As we will see in the next photo, these walls are probably white. According to the text: "Given that Givenchy's plan was to construct his salon around the armoire, a question arose: should the whole space reflect the style of Louis XIV? A visit to an apartment in Rome owned by his friends Gianni and Marella Agnelli provided the answer. It was full of wonderful things, but there was no overload – only a kind of sumptuous simplicity. The most remarkable aspect of it, according to Givenchy, was the commingling of materials and styles: 'Rope, cotton, gilt bronzes, garden furniture, a Régence cabinet and modern art by Marino Marini, Manzú and Modigliani.' Another design had made a strong impression on Givenchy was Helena Rubenstein's apartment on the Ile Saint-Louis, created before the war by Louis Süe: It was a mixture of Boulle furniture, African art and paintings by Picasso, against a background of impeccably white stone. But it was the Agnelli apartment that tipped the balance. 'By the time I got back from Rome, the decision was made,' he recalls. 'There would be no damask with the Boulle cabinet. My next move was to call in Charles Sévigne.' ."
