Luxury homes: A French designer’s utterly inviting eclectic Parisian apartment

Sacha Walckhoff, creative director of Maison Christian Lacroix takes us on a tour of the fashionably eclectic apartment he shares with partner Pasca.

We often associate Paris with classical style. Nestled in an 1840s building in the 10th arrondissement, this 1,453 sq ft apartment could have been a testament to that notion if it weren’t for the very different story that unfolds inside. Designer and decorator Sacha Walckhoff, creative director of Maison Christian Lacroix since 2010, opens the doors to the home he shares with partner Pascal Ferrero, an internationally known wig and hair designer for the film and theatre industry.

Eclectic Parisian Apartment

“We moved in just after a famous young French actor left. He’d done such a great job that we did not have much to do!” confesses Sacha. “We both work from home a lot and wanted a place where we could also invite clients for a drink so we could share our ideas and style.”

    The entrance immediately reveals the unique ambience of this creative place where audacity rules. The dark vestibule, painted in Railings – a soft black with blue undertones by Farrow & Ball – contrasts with the rest of the bright rooms.

    The space features an antique stove in ceramic and brass from the end of the 19th century, a Michael Anastassiades IC Ceiling Light for Flos and a pair of bronze Pulcinella wall lamps made in 1987 for the Lacroix Haute Couture Salons by Elizabeth Garouste and Mattia Bonetti.

    Other statement pieces include a folding screen embellished with 17th-century Dutch embossed leather panels that was designed by Sacha and manufactured by Karen Mourra, as well as a Fur Play armchair in brass and steel, another Sacha creation in collaboration with French ornamental metalworking firm Pouenat for Galerie Gosserez.
