Hubert de givenchy on the rue fabert, interior design by charles sévigny, designed in 1968-69, part 6, dining room: according to the caption: "givenchy moved the salon's louis xv marble mantel to the dining room, where mirrored panels- some concealing cupboards and doors-provide a backdrop for collages by braque, right, and nicolas de staël, left. a robert courtright mask faces a table encircled by jacob chairs." more from the @apollomagazine
article: "while his fellow designers wanted to furnish their apartments immediately (christian dior, for instance, had a penchant for napoleon iii papier mâché: ‘i never liked that epoch, for me it is sad’), m. de givenchy understood almost from the start the importance of working slowly and buying the highest quality objects he could afford. he also never asked any expert for advice. ‘little by little, i pursued my dream of acquiring furniture from the 17th and 18th centuries, and contemporary art.' ."

article: " ‘another time she wanted to buy some work by braque. i told her that the best braques were to be found with the maeghts in the south of france and that she should make some time to go. i call up marguerite maeght – she is a great friend – and we all have lunch. bunny bought four or five braques that afternoon. that was what my life was like: i would visit a client for a fitting and we would end up doing something completely different. life is marvellous!’ ". photo from 2002 @archdigest
