He may not be as well known to the international community as his Gallic colleagues Alberto Pinto, Christian Liaigre or even Jean-Louis Deniot (whom I featured here), but Tristan Auer is no less gifted and certainly knows how to infuse casual sensibility into his refined interiors.
A few blocks away from my 2010 project in Paris on the Trocadero, Tristan worked on a project in which he injected some well-deserved 21st century chic. What I really, really liked was the dining room. Leaving the 19th century boisserie apparently intact but painted in a grayish tone, he introduced a customized dinner table in a light wood and a perfectly scaled, silver chased, half-dome, modernistic overhead fixture with gold interior which fabulously plays off the dark mottled carpet which in itself, looks to be a modern take on an “oriental”. I’m also sure he designed the clean-lined bookshelves himself which seemingly fit inside the wood panels of the far wall. Every detail is delicious and refined but still casual, a testament to his incredible raw talent and sensibility for putting together sophisticated interiors for today’s living. Bravissimo!
