Place des Etats Unis by Stephanie Coutas

Stephanie Coutas is showing her new Paris home. Completely renovated and redesigned by Stephanie, it is situated opposite the Place des Etats Unis, a 2 minute walk from the famous avenue Montaigne and Champs Elysees. The renovation has taken 18 months of hard work, with the aim to highlight her impressive and extensive art collection that she has accumulated through the years.


Throughout the project, Stephanie’s “savoir faire” comes to show with plenty of luxurious details, while maintaining a settled and contemporary feeling. The result is a warm and cosy yet spectacular flat. Materials and finishes are classic and elegant in tones of black and white with bronze and brass finishes.

Starting from the entrance in white opal with brass inserts to the motif of the ceiling going through the reception hall, the combination of classic moulding styles, revisited through a modern pattern gives a new sense to the place. The main idea was to create a fluid, spacious hallway that merged with the reception, creating the sense of an art gallery.

Stephanie says of  her design process; “The starting  point of the ceiling design was  my new Chandelier, “PARIS” edited by Baccarat. From the first circle, I started designing the rest of the pattern”. The second inspiration was my crush for a fantastic young artist called “THE KID”.

“I gave him ‘carte blanche’, he then came back to me with these 2 gigantic  portraits, I loved them so much, I immediately wanted to create a curved wall with back light to have a floating effect and give the impression they were facing each other”.

In the rest of the house, you can find all the signature touches that the SC Edition Agency use throughout their various projects worldwide: a lot of built in cabinets made of luxurious materials, leather, silk, wood, velvet, marble, bronze, semi-precious stones etc.

As always, the design of the house brings feelings of comfort and peace to the soul. All the bedrooms are ensuites and have all the luxuries of 5 star palaces such as mini bars, high quality beds and linen, Mr and Mrs separate bathrooms and dressing areas.

Stéphanie Coutas is always searching for new materials, techniques and finishes. Therefore, she works in partnership with a lot of craftsmen mainly in France and Europe to achieve the highest quality designs and products in her projects. The agency’s main target is to develop unique and exclusive projects that exceed the expectations of her international clientele.
