Villa Poiret / Robert Mallet-Stevens

Quite a long title and this listed 1920s Robert Mallet-Stevens-designed art deco Villa Poiret property in Île-de-France, near Paris, France has quite a long and complex history.

Sat around 25 miles out of Paris, it was originally designed by Robert Mallet-Stevens for fashion designer Paul Poiret, with building starting in 1923. Unfortunately, the house, one of three designed by Mallet-Stevens in France, never got completed at the time due to a lack of funds / Poiret’s bankruptcy.

It was left as a shell until after the war, when architect Paul Boyer, who was entrusted to complete the works, whilst preserving the original design (although he added a moderne touch, which was the rage at the time). It stayed in the same ownership until 1985, stayed empty until 1999, then was bought and restored to its former glory, using the post-war plans.
