The Living Room and Dining Room adjoin at the front of the apartment, overlooking the rue Monge.  The living room is furnished with 1920's leather armchairs, an antique blanket chest (as a coffee table), and a sofa-bed that can provide sleeping accommodations for 2 additional people in a pinch. On the shelves are antique leather-bound french encyclopedias and art books, as well as a telephone, stereo and TV/VCR.  The floor-to-ceiling windows give the room plenty of light.

 

The room has been remodeled, with refinished parquet floors, but retains the charm of the original.  The photo above is taken from the doorway from the hall, the photo below is taken from the adjoining dining room.
