Florence Mars and her husband left France for New York a few years ago. A decision that she wasn’t particularly thrilled about at the time. However, today, more radiant than ever, she welcomes us to her fabulous four-floor townhouse in central Brooklyn. A neighbourhood that the managing director of Bonpoint USA has enjoyed scouring, from antique shops to second-hand stores, to throw herself fully into her new adventure. Her own American Dream Open and firmly focused on family. It is for her family that this Frenchwoman has designed every corner of her home which dates from 1851. She has taken particular care to preserve the original features, such as the bricks and arches, and the different ambiances. Sometimes industrial, sometimes effortless, with a Parisian je-ne-sais-quoi, they sit side by side harmoniously in the modernised spaces of the house. It’s a treat for her three children and Shibuya Station, the newly arrived puppy, who can grow up there at their own pace, nurtured by their two cultures.
