It’s been awhile since we last visited the City of Light, so here’s a jaunt to five modern abodes we adore.

“At Rue Vignon I wanted to distort reality in order to create intriguing visions,” explains architect Michael Herrman, who renovated an 18th-century structure in Paris for himself and his family. He was inspired by an apartment created in the 1930s by Le Corbusier. Photo by Filippo Bamberghi

Jean-Christophe Aumas’ multihued Paris apartment houses both the highly sought artistic director and the stunning assemblage of furniture he’s brought back from his travels. The Brick screen by Eileen Gray for Aram Designs blocks off a small office from the dining room. Photo by Christian Schaulin

Even the most petite Parisians are chic. For this 10th arrondissement kids' room renovation, a multitude of shelves and storage let Eva hide her stuffed animals, books, and secret notebooks—with a small corner looking out of the window onto the Paris landscape outside and the window to her brother inside.

Modern atrium with Jasper Morrison furniture

Long before he moved into the historic building, Dutch architect Felix Claus admired 51 rue Raynouard, an apartment block in the Passy district of Paris designed and built in 1932 by Auguste Perret. In 2006, Dutch architect Felix Claus—director of Claus en Kaan Architecten, one of the Netherlands’ top architectural practices—finally got inside Perret’s apartment. In the atrium are two Low Pad chairs by Jasper Morrison and a Still coffee table by Foster + Partners. Photo by Hotze Eisma
