Villa Benkemoun: a place to live '70s timeless designs
Who doesn't dream of spending summertime in the south of France? At Villa Benkemoun you can do it in a '70s vibe surrounded by striking designs.
The architectural icon built by Émile Sala in the early 1970s is in the city of Arles. The house belonged to the family of journalist Brigitte Benkemoun who, years later, renovated it with her husband Thierry Demaizière.
Now, this Villa designed in organic shapes can be rented for holidays and cultural events. The curved structure creates a modern circular dynamic that links all the huge gardens of the house, it is perfect for a sunset with guests by the pool.
The furniture has not been changed for 45 years. Complementary designs have been added to match the environment and colors, showing that durable pieces are irreplaceable.
In the living room, the striking chairs of '70s modernism have rounded silhouettes sculpted in ceramic and covered with black smooth leather. This piece was a collab between artisans Guy Bareff and Elsa Oudshoorn. Timeless, current, and original vintage finds.
Pour a drink, sit down, and enjoy this place that has not been affected by time.
Top-quality pieces never go out of style.
