Cocoa Stool is a voguish piece characterized by an elegant hexagonal base and a delicately carved body. This modern piece of furniture is decorative, functional, and versatile since it can be used as a stool or as a small side table. Available in solid oak or mahogany, the Cocoa stool is bound to make it sweeter all around.

Clearly, the stone is Joseph Dirand’s preferred material. Walls, flat surfaces, baths are all in soft-tone stone or marble. As with all his commissions, he brought on his favorite artisans, who know how to execute his taste for details. Like the three majestic Massangis limestone-trimmed arches down the left side of the entrance hall, which give way to the sprawling living/dining room.

In the kitchen, there is a vanilla-hued island carved from a hunk of breccia stazzema marble he purchased directly from the quarry and saved for five years. He even employs mineral materials for key furnishings, such as the white travertine dining table and the Estremoz coffee table.

Through a neoclassical limestone pedimented doorway at the end of the entrance hall are the family’s bedrooms. In the narrow hallway prowls a sleek bronze-and-gold lioness with auric eyes—a sculpture by Harumi Klossowska de Rola, the daughter of Balthus.

Throughout the home, creatures abound—an adorable Lalanne lamb, a vintage scarab table by French mid-century ceramist Georges Jouve, a taxidermy owl from the Paris natural science shop Deyrolle. The interior design also features an impressive and extensive modern, abstract, and Arte Povera art collection.
