Modern kitchen island.

Furniture collector Jean-Christophe Aumas covered the kitchen island of his Paris flat in marble tiles from Carrelages du Marais—the geometric floor tiles are from the same place—and strung the matrix of lights up above it. The barstools by Charlotte Perriand were discovered in a vintage store in Antwerp, Belgium. The green wall is covered in paint from Emery & Cie. Photo by: Christian Schaulin
