It is in the back of a courtyard in the 11th arrondissement of Paris that Miriam and Sylvain have created a unique space. It is an unusual place, customized by Miriam. As an interior designer, she has transformed a decadent space into a spacious loft on two levels. A winter garden, exposed brick and a polished concrete library set the scene.

Miriam, what room do you spend the most time in at home?

Miriam Gassman

I flutter all the time between the kitchen, the living room and the veranda, which are in fact one and the same room.

What is missing in your home?

Miriam Gassman

A view of the sea.

Where do you go when you are looking for a piece of furniture?

Miriam Gassman

To neighbourhood antique shops and the Flea Market in the Porte de Vanves.

What is your current favourite?

Miriam Gassman

The film, Baraka, which I’ve only just discovered, but that I could watch once a week. It is a non narrative portrait of the planet whose interpretation calls upon strong introspection.

Do you have a favourite designer?

Miriam Gassman

My brother! He handcrafts wonderful cufflinks. His entire process is based on the transmission of know-how and materials and I find that in our time it is a critical issue in design.

What work do you dream of one day owning?

Miriam Gassman

A piece by James Turrell, who is a genius of light and who constantly flirts with architecture.

How did you choose the name of your son Solal?

Miriam Gassman

To begin with, Albert Cohen has nothing to do with the choice of the name. We wanted him to carry the Judaic origins of the family and for his name to evoke the Mediterranean. We are often asked whether it is Spanish or North African. We imagined a beautiful brown curly haired boy!

What is your favourite motto?

Miriam Gassman

“When we look, we find”. This applies as much to the man in front of the fridge, as it does to my son falling from the chair he has been dangerously climbing for the past 15 minutes, and to me who loves poking about for objects and places off the beaten path.

Is there a recent restaurant you would recommend to us in Paris or elsewhere?

Miriam Gassman
Chez François, in the bay of Mont Saint Michel. They make the best prime rib cooked on a wood fire I’ve ever eaten.

Is there a favourite piece that you and Sylvain will keep forever?

Miriam Gassman
Perhaps the green armchairs we want to re-upholster, only for their history. They belonged to André Malraux and then to my parents. I have pictures of me at 6 months on them and they speak of the friendliness that existed in our family apartment and that I would always like to keep in my home. For sure, the chandelier above the stairs as well, which has seen family dinners, celebrations, up to 20 friends around the table since I was 4 years old.
