Paris Apartments by Leila Dionizios

At that time the Rio de Janeiro-based architect Leila Dionizios tasked with designing a residence for a young Parisian family of 450 square meters, he was tasked with carrying out a clean and modern aesthetic that was in harmony with the classic boiserie wood panels that exist in the house. By painting walls with bright colors and combining minimalist lines through furniture, rugs and curtains, he achieved a relaxed and inviting atmosphere without sacrificing luxury.

Integral to the design scheme are contemporary pendant lighting from SONNEMAN – A Way of Light. Utilizing the impressive high ceilings of the house, the Corona Pendant creates a circular light profile in the living room. Warm, radiant light from LED lighting provides volume presence and absence, contributing to vertical balance while maintaining a cluttered appearance.

In the dining room, the Grapes Pendant features a group of glowing LED balls, which allow it to function as a dazzling statement item during family dinners or while entertaining guests. Positioned on the table, Grapes emit scattered light, omnidirectional lighting.
