Wafting about her new Hidden Hills home in a purple satin robe and high heels (!), Mama Jenner breezily name-drops furniture made by 20th century masters like Charlotte Perriand, Jean Prouvé, Jean Royère, Pierre Guariche, Aldo Tura, Paolo Buffa, and Oscar Niemeyer.
Not bad. Not bad at all.
The big get? A chair designed by Le Corbusier in association with Pierre Jeannette for the High Court in Chandigarh, India— which sits front and center in her sprawling closet.
“I’ve been collecting furniture and making houses for a lifetime. I’ve had so many different types of homes in so many different styles,” Jenner recalls, laughing at the memory of some of her earlier efforts. “In the ’80s, my bedroom looked like a lavender-chintz supplier threw up all over it. Robert Kardashian was such a good sport,” she adds, referring to her then-husband and father of Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, and Rob.

Pops of color are introduced in the contemporary artworks that adorn the walls, including a Yoshitomo Nara painting that presides over the dining room, an Yves Klein Blue Venus standing near the great room, and a Tracey Emin neon sculpture that glows softly at the end of a hallway on the ground floor. “The art was waiting for this house to happen,” Jenner says of the happy embrace between her quietly confident decor and the artworks in her collection.
“Kris has genuinely sophisticated taste. The Prouvé daybed, the Jeanneret chairs, the Lalannes—these are all things she came with. This house was a great opportunity for her to express her love of art and design,” observes AD100 designer Waldo Fernandez. As for the nature of his collaboration with mother-and-son design team of Kathleen and Tommy Clements, the legendary Hollywood decorator avows: “We all trust and respect each other’s taste, so it’s not like anyone was going to bring something hideous to the table. Working together allowed us to approach the project from a fresh perspective.”
My other faves? The ’50s era light-up mini-bar (NEEEEEEED THAT!) and the baby grand piano weirdly tucked under the staircase (?).
