A Hubert Le Gall Autruche floor lamp in patinated bronze and an opaline glass lamp by Jacques Adnet illuminate the living room; artworks include Michel Cadoret’s Partie de Pêche, 1958, and, on the fireplace, a metal sculpture James Barre Turnbull created in the early 1960s. Photography by Stephan Julliard.
