Fully furnished apartment, uninhabited since 1942, discovered in Paris


Time stood still in this remarkable place. An apartment, left by its owner fleeing for the Germans in 1942, wasn’t rediscovered until 2010. The magnificent large apartment belonged to Madame Florian, who never returned to her home after the war. She died in 2010. Bailiffs and those in charge of her estate found documents showing she rented an apartment in a desirable part of Paris. When entering, they stumbled upon a treasure trove of turn-of-the Century antiques and memorabilia¬†including a painting by 19th century Italian artist Giovanni Boldini. Madame Florian paid her rent every month.
