Joseph Dirand's home in the Seventh Arrondissement in Paris was recently renovated by the sought-after Architect and the result is a minimalist apartment with perfectly restored traditional French details.  The furniture in Dirand's home is all form and substance.  In the living room, sofa and side chairs are Pierre Jeanneret, in the kitchen the family eats at a Ettore Sottsass table, in the bedroom an Oscar Niemeyer chair looks graciously at the bed.  As most French, Joseph Dirand relies on excellent craftsmanship to restore the neglected into its past glory.  For his home, Joseph decided on simple stucco walls, Versailles parquet floors and simple wall moldings inspired by 17th century Interior Architecture.
