Coco Chanel's Private Apartment, rue Cambon, Paris

Coco Chanel entertained in these rooms above her atelier, now the famous boutique off rue St Honore.  I've had the incredible privilege to visit the apartment a few times and hope these photos will bring to life her exquisite taste.

The Salon
The sofa is covered in signature quilted ultrasuede.

Fabulous chandelier with amethyst and rock crystal drops.
Look closely to see the interlocking Cs, No. 5 and G in the metalwork.

Glorious tablescapes

A favorite corner -- love the mirrored top, cut to fit the curves of the table.

Well, this is expected, right? Being a famous designer, it is given that she'll have a breathtaking home. Simply lovely.

Hey it’s Jason with Zogby, I wanted to let you know COVID has truly changed the wine industry! Our online store has never seen so many online sales for red wine. It’s insane. According to our internal sales data, people are consuming wine + tequila the most.
