Pierre Yovanovich, selected by Architectural Digest (USA)

Why Pierre Yovanovich you can tell me?

Well, simply because Peter was the only French to have been selected by Architectural Digest USA -magazine specialized in interior design, home inspiration and trigger discoverer of trends, artists, architects, and designers, -among Top 100 decorators and interior designers worldwide in early 2010.

In fact, each January, the icon of American interior design magazines gives his list of the best designers on the planet. The French talents are recognized among the greatest. But in this latest edition, the designer Peter Jovanovich is the only one to appear.
Pierre Yovanovich started his career with Pierre Cardin in which he designed men’s fashion. He has developed a taste for geometry, material and detail. But his true passion: architecture and decoration, has never left him and after several years Pierre Yovanovich decide to devote himself fully.

First, he redecorated his apartment on the Quai Voltaire before settle in 2001 and then one thing led to another he has created and designed for his friends.

Initially inspired by late-18th-century French and Swedish styles, the designer was soon “led to certain forms of Neoclassicism and Modernism, like those of British designer T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings and the French architect Pierre Chareau,” which greatly influence his work. “I like to use materials that suggest both luxury and sobriety,” he says. It’s a philosophy that proposes “opulence and restraint at the same time—to create a magical place that is always a neutral backdrop for beautiful objects.”

An aesthetic and humane. Experience. A very unique signature in the world of contemporary decor.
