On The Square

Make Room: The Background Noise of Didier Gomez

By Jessica Helen Weinberg

Feb 09,2018 | 06:00 EST

Do you ever wonder what famous chef's are cooking at home? Are they settling for a late night grilled cheese or perfectly pinching handmade pierogies? When top industry elites do for themselves, what they vehemently do for others, what decisions are being made? 

The same question stands for interior designers. Didier Gomez, an expert talent who has reimagined private homes for the likes of Pierre Bergé of Yves Saint Laurent and retail treasures such as Céline, Christan Dior, De beers and Louis Vuitton as well as the Renassance République, Marriott in Paris – also has a space to call his own.


Taking his early career as an opera singer into consideration, it isn't surprising to notice how Didier Gomez employs a chorus of time periods with oscillating volumes of background noise into his home decor.

We scanned the platform for past auction items and upcoming selections that echo the creative license that drives Didier Gomez - and we're starting with crushed velvet...
