Just off Rue des Martyrs in Paris, in the 9th arrondissement, “Maison d’art Amelie” showroom presents the works of a hundred artists and contemporary designers. Founded by Amélie du Chalard, a 31-year-old collector, Maison d'Art Amelie is a showcase for paintings, engravings, sculptures, photographs, videos and works of art. Aficionados of abstract art can view the pieces into a familiar domestic interior before acquiring the work of their choice.
At Amelie’s, art lives naturally. The gallery has been imagined as a town house, where artworks illuminate every room: from the entrance to the living room; from the bedroom to the bathroom. Covering an area of 230 m2 spread over two floors, the space has been redesigned by the architectural firm Batiik Studio. While, elements dated from the 19th century such as the Eiffel and Haussmann beams have been preserved; the house exhibits a modern chic interior.
On the ground floor, the visitor is immediately immersed in the world of Amelie and her artists with paintings hanging on immaculate walls. A semi-circular staircase leads to the living room, where designer furnitures and works of art create an atmosphere of invigorating modernity. On the floor, a pastel terrazzo XXL will inevitably catch all eyes.
Upstairs, there is an open space including dining room, living room and open kitchen. On the east?/west? side, very large windows invite the light in and offer a panoramic view of a lush green courtyard. On the street side, the room is nestled behind tall glass doors. The bathroom THG Paris displays a sleek black and white elegant atmosphere.
In every single room, art and design live together. Every two months, Amélie du Chalard creates a new exhibition highlighting a duo or a trio of artists.
The Paris art room is located between rue des Martyrs and Place Saint-Georges. Open daily by appointment from 8 am to 8 pm
