Nothing says summer in the city more than a colorful array of beach chairs in a small Parisian flat. Which is why we're sourcing the key elements of designers Isabelle Gilles and Yann Poncelet's sunny apartment; we've long admired the interiors' mix of bright orange deck chairs and midcentury vintage (see A Parisian Apartment with a Summery Spirit ) as well as Gilles and Poncelet's line of furniture at Colonel . Recreate the summer-in-Paris look with the following elements: Above: High (Noguchi) meets low (cheap beach chairs) in the entryway. Above: Houseplants populate the light-filled dining area. Above: A corner of the living room features an evocative wall mural painted by Alice Gilles. A jute rug, vintage coffee table, and a green velvet-upholstered sofa all coexist with the mural's fantasyland. Above: Mise en Scene's Atelier Chesterfield Sofa in bottle green is made with a hardwood frame, cotton fill, and leather; $5,998 from Anthropologie. A low option is the rich velvet Ava Tufted Sleeper Sofa in moss for $749 from Urban Outfitters. Above: The Noguchi Vitra Akari 10A Floor Lamp is currently on sale for £295.38 from Nest in the UK. In the US, the Noguchi Floor Lamp Model 10A is $450 at Zinc Details in San Francisco. Above: The Italian-style outdoor FSC Karri Deck Chair is £62.10 from Capital Gardens. Above: Ikea's Tarby Jute Rug ranges from $99.99 to $149.99, depending on size, from Ikea. Above: Hans Wegner's Walnut Coffee Table is $2,665 from Design Within Reach. Above The T elescope Casual Sun and Sand Folding Beach Chair is $60.10 from Amazon. Above: The Topan Pendant Light in aluminum with an orange lacquered finish is $350 from Y Lighting. Above: Colonel's Vintage Table is available directly through Colonel Vintage .
