Hubert de Givenchy's Paris Apartment

In the late 1960s Hubert de Givenchy renovated his Napoleon III Paris apartment with designer Charles Sévigny. Givenchy moved the salon’s Louis XV marble mantel to the dining room, where mirrored panels—some concealing cupboards and doors—provide a backdrop for collages by Braque, right, and Nicolas de Staël, left. A Robert Courtright mask faces a table encircled by Jacob chairs. (AD, October 2002)
