Constance Gennari, is the kind of BFF everyone dreams of having. Since 2013, the founder of The Socialite Family opens up for us, in two clicks, the doors of homesteads where the most stylish families from Paris to New York actually live. Three years ago, the former journalist launched her own brand of furniture and decoration accessories—in order words a really upscale interior decor. Today, she hosts us in her first boutique, that also houses her office, right near the Sézane Apartment. Visit.
A wildly inspiring flagship
Constance says it and insists: she does not like the total look. Result, her super inspiring address showcases her creations in a super slick scenography influenced by her Italian roots, to which can be added vintage furniture pieces, small curios and works picked from Wilo and Grove, the 2.0 gallery of her friends.
The ensemble recalls the elegant and warm atmosphere of Milanese venues. And everything is for sale! The living room features a superb sofa in patinated leather from the 70s, the new customizable Carlotta coffee table with lacquered feet and round platter in its different versions (starting at €1,590) on a traditional braid from Mauritania. A black and white retro photo of Jane Birkin and the delicate Gioia lamp, with its flower base and lampshade in pleated cotton (€390).
A place conceived like an apartment
A bookshelf space filled with cushions in all sorts of shapes: round, rectangular and even berlingot, the already cult Divino (€20). A shelf of vases in Murano glass (€30). In the spotlight, the new Cavallo armchair with its caned back and interchangeable seat cushion: panther print (€540), pine green (€490), pampa print (€540).
In the bedroom, the bed is dressed up with the off-white Venezia sheet set in cotton satin (€39 for the pillowcase). At its foot, an adorable newborn ensemble in collaboration with Molli (€60), scented soaps and a bed throw in cotton gauze available in a wide palette of colours (€39). Without forgetting curtains in corduroy velvet borrowed from Italian palazzos (€160). In fact, the best thing would be to move here!
Open Tuesday to Saturday from 11am to 8pm.
