A magical loft in the Montparnasse district of Paris

Located a few metro stations from the center of Paris, the Villa Pensées is one of these secret addresses that reveals all its beauty once the gateway is crossed. This completely renovated contemporary house is structured on three floors with well-defined functions, and overlooks a private Japanese garden where tropical palm trees and climbing ivies rub shoulders in perfect harmony. White, the common thread of a designer and very refined decoration, is artistically enhanced by a few touches of color present on the furniture and the multiple works exhibited in each room. This immense space bathed in light is offered for rental by the very select site LeCollectionist, in partnership with the furniture editor Cassina: have gone around and reveals all the details of this dream loft!

A living room open to the rest of the house

An almost monastic count

A futuristic bathroom

A room like a small museum
