A din­ing ta­ble by French de­signer Pierre Chapo is given a Mid Cen­tury-style back­drop via the use of tex­tured wall­pa­pered pan­els at one end of the liv­ing-cum-din­ing room. Prouvé’s Stan­dard chairs sur­round the solid-wood ta­ble, and a three-armed, wall-mounted light fit­ting by French in­dus­trial de­signer Serge Mouille (serge­mouille.com) casts a soft glow over the area at night. When Em­manuel ‘had no room for any more fur­ni­ture’, he be­gan col­lect­ing Jouve ceram­ics, and one of the ceram­i­cist’s lid­ded vases takes pride of place on the din­ing ta­ble.
