Times are changing at Le Meurice and it’s all waiting for you to discover.
June 14, 2019
Combining 18th century opulence with contemporary chic, Le Meurice is a living and ever-changing canvas. Dating back to 1835, this unique hotel embodies the perfect French palace hotel. The scene is set by an enviable location overlooking all the major city landmarks. Step inside and discover the many reasons why this has long been the chosen place for great artists and thinkers, from Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso to Woody Allen and Jay-Z.
A total of 29 rooms and suites, all with exceptional panoramic views, have been artfully restored. Charles Jouffre, Le Meurice’s interior designer of ten years and creator of the sumptuous drapes at the Opera Garnier, invited two young designers, Margaux Lally and Luc Berger, to mastermind the new vision. Known for their great passion for French craftsmanship, the duo has already created the hotel’s sublime Pompadour Suite, which is as avant-garde and beautiful as the Marquise de Pompadour herself.
The designers considered what a modern-day Versailles would look like if it was built now and used this as their underlying theme. Bringing with them a certain ‘Je ne sais quoi’ that’s both elegant and audacious, they created a series of lighter and brighter spaces, decorated with a tactile array of the finest French fabrics, alongside bespoke furniture and well-thought out artworks relating to the history of Paris and Le Meurice.
True to her name, the seventh-floor penthouse promises to be simply spectacular. Crowning the famous Mansard roof, this beacon of elegance represents the ultimate in luxury interiors, offering a 360° view of Paris with its own exclusive ‘garden in the sky’ and all the major Parisian landmarks at your feet?
