Interior design duo Lally & Berger took on a very personal renovation project for a place steeped in history: the family apartment in which Margaux Lally grew up.
"Charles was the first person to believe in our ideas and to show his trust by working with us on various projects, while also making his experience and know-how available to us. Jouffre's unique mastery has enabled us to grow and make our mark, so that we can now roll back our creative boundaries even further."> Visit website
After having left a trace of their talent in exceptional places such as the suites of the Parisian palace Le Meurice, it is in a completely different project that Margaux Lally and her partner Luc Berger expressed their creativity with passion: by renovating their own apartment in Lyon.
Like a memory box, a home bears silent witness to many beautiful stories and anecdotes. It is with a deep attachment to her family apartment, where she has lived since she was twelve years old, that Margaux Lally decided to write her own story alongside her companion Luc, and their daughter Jill.
For this personal renovation project, the challenge was not very small: how to completely rethink a place full of history that we have known for so many years, without altering its charm? The founders of Lally & Berger studio found the ideal solution by reconfiguring the volumes of the 200 square meter apartment, while retaining the exposed wooden beams and structural posts from the former silk workshop dating to the 1900s.
In this apartment, nothing was left to chance. The decorative and architectural elements echo, fit together and come together like the pieces of a puzzle. To liven up the modern loft with authentic charm, Margaux Lally and Luc Berger wished, as usual, to surround themselves with passionate and meticulous craftsmen. To carry out the fabrication of window treatments and upholstery, our teams had the pleasure to join their adventure.
With its large windows with exposed stones, the contemporary living room has vintage notes and proudly displays a mix of patterns and materials. To dress up this living space, our artisans have upholstered the Sully sofa, whose base is made of recycled beams from the renovation work, in a Tours canvas fabric by Le Manach. The achievement of this piece of furniture required great precision on the part of our upholsterers who had to perfectly adjust the seams to the repetition of the polka dot fabric. We also made several decorative back cushions and several "marshmallow" cushions to accessorize this contemporary sofa. Facing it are two armchairs, also covered by our upholsterers in a Tara Chapas fabric.
The master bedroom, a true haven of peace with inspirations from the countryside, reflects a warm and rustic atmosphere. Our seamstresses have made two pairs of Christian Fischbacher velvet curtains for this cocoon, lined with a cream-colored satin and installed on bent rods.
Upstairs, the children's room is an invitation to travel and adventure with warm materials and a theme with colorful Aztec patterns. To decorate this cosy nest, our upholsterers made the bench attached to the bed, in a Verel de Belval fabric. This bench is accented with a passementerie created by the Parisian workshop Declercq Passementiers.
