  • Jean Paul Gaultier Furniture Sweetens Up Paris Elle Decor Suite

    Love the crazy way Jean Paul Gaultier put his signature nautical stripes on wacky, cool furniture

    For the last two years Elle Decor has selected a fashion designer to decorate the former apartment of Jacques Carlu at the Cité de Architecture. This year the chosen is Jean Paul Gaultier, proceeding Christian Lacroix and Martin Margiela.

    The bedroom looks like pure Italian grandmother straight from Bay Ridge Brooklyn with a white satin quilted bedspread and big haired doll in the middle.
    The only thing that marred the installation was the dropped ceiling with the harsh spotlights and I don’t know if Gaultier had those intentionally put in. – Richard Nahem, The Paris Insider
