Firmly starred and circled every October in the diaries of true art and design lovers, Private Choice brings together the brightest and best in contemporary art - both established names and new faces - housing them seamlessly together in a beautiful historic Parisian Haussmannien apartment.
An ephemeral, snug and inspiring Aladdin’s cave of wonders, Paris’ yearly collection is a liveable, touchable art gallery, where everything can be bought and everything is utterly desirable. Curated by Nadia Candet and presenting more than 50 artists, Private Choice is the interactive art event collectors had long been waiting for.
Now in its fifth year, one can only look back to 2016 to foretell what wonders might unfold in this October’s edition. A Baz Luhrman vibe of fun, joy and joire de vivre runs ever throughout, eclectic yet thoughtful, bright yet classic, each piece and its placement lending itself to manifold inspiration.
Pieces by artists and designers Berger&Berger, Nils Guadagnin and Carlos Cruz sit snug while crystal-decked chandeliers burn bright alongside contemporary marble lamps glazed with gold, complimenting the other perfectly.
A lived-in explosion of luxury and style, Private Choice is tailored for those who enjoy art, design, architecture, trends and, as Nadia Candet so eloquently puts it, ‘the art of living’. A collector’s cabinet of curiosities, it is a must-see for anyone visiting Paris in early autumn. Just don’t forget to reserve a space, oh, and bring your chequebook.
