"I didn't want to leave this area empty, or fill it with too many things," says Rigaud of this space next to the front door. Four Barcelona chairs surrounding a marble coffee table
from CB2 create a conversation area. A perfectly-scaled drum pendant
, also from CB2, hangs overhead, and a floral painting by his mother, Jeanne Rigaud
, brightens up the space. In fact, most of the paintings of flowers and women you see around the loft are his mother's work.
"My mother is 86 years old and is self-taught," says Rigaud. "She started painting about 20 years ago, in her 60s."
