The renowned French interior designer, Sarah Lavoine who opened her own design studio, Maison Sarah Lavoine in 2002, has already an impressive repertoire of wide-ranging projects, from interior design to paint collections as well as designing furniture and objects. The designer is often inspired by a “Happiness is lifestyle” philosophy which makes her work so exceptional. Now, her studio has embraced a new project and turned a hidden Atelier in Paris (16th arrondissement) into a stunning loft-like concept store.
Maison Sarah Lavoine has completely renovated the 19th-century building and one can learn about its industrial history in the soaring trussed roof and workbenches, as Lavoine explains ‘Craftsmanship is at the heart of the work of Maison Sarah Lavoine, so embracing the history of this space was an obvious move for us.’

The new concept store is now well-appointed with living spaces that were designed right below the soaring glass roof in the open-plan studio. These include a living room, a dining room, a bedroom and a dressing room. The red brick walls were paired with pale oak floors and vibrant colours, noticeable on the sofas, lampshades and furnishings.
The studio’s signature blue tone was splashed on a wall behind the black steel staircase, in a contemporary and bold response to the A-frame trusses overhead. Running the length of the building’s original framework, the workstations are loaded with Levoine’s own collections as well as new modular shelving units. The industrial style is completed with “In the Tube” hanging lights.
In addition, a jewellery store for Pascale Monvoisin and a patisserie have moved into the 1,400 sqm space, and more surprises are expected to be introduced, so stay tuned.
