World-renowned interior designer Jacques Grange has spent almost five decades creating unsurpassed projects for his elite clientele – including Yves Saint Laurent, Aerin Lauder, Princess Caroline of Monaco and Francis Ford Coppola – and he stands as an iconic figure still giving shape to French design. Ready for some unbelievably beautiful projects? Here we go!
The Mark Hotel – New York
His particular style, so effortless that it has been described as not decorated at all, appears as timeless and everlasting, thanks to the influences of his academic education and the various important figures that have shaped his artistic persona: his strict education started at 15, when he enrolled at the École Boulle to study gilding, plaster carving, cabinetmaking and upholstery and then at the École Camondo for interior design.
Château Gabriel – Normandy
Among Jacques Grange’s major projects, we can consider highlights the Paloma Picasso‘s jewelry shop in New York City, the Mark Hotel on Madison Avenue, and the Barbizon Hotel. Some of his current works have brought him to Lima, Brittany, Paris and New York. His willingness to conjure audacious atmospheres where opposite elements balance each other has made him a true icon in the design field.
Historic Townhouse – London
One of his major encounters has been the one with Yves Saint Laurent, for whom he created different projects, from a villa in Marrakech to a Proust-themed Château Gabriel in Normandy for which he took inspiration from “In Search of Lost Time”. Jacques Grange has said about that particular client: “Of all the houses I have decorated, those I have decorated for Yves Saint Laurent are the most important part of my work”. His signature style manages to convey a harmonious vibe, thanks to the balance between traditional and contemporary elements; not even an element seems out of place.
