French interior designer Sybille de Margerie has designed each suite in a quintessential Parisian, haute-couture style with vibrant and elegant tones, understated lines and refined, opulent materials.
Located on the top floor of the modern palace, the 162 square-metre Suite Royale Orientale is split over two floors with a stunning panoramic view of the entire city. West pays homage to East in this unique suite with a combination of white, beige, black and green shades and lacquer, velvet and ebony along with marble that is etched with illustrations showing the journey from Paris to the Orient. Motifs relating to nature run throughout the suite, including hand-painted crocodiles on the bar and Asian-inspired floral patterns on the drapes. At the entrance to the ground floor lies a stunning piece of art by Thierry Bisch depicting a cloud of butterflies, leading to a living room and private dining area. The staircase is embellished with sculpted flowers and butterflies. Upstairs, the large bedroom is decorated in elegant shades of bronze, while the adjoining bathroom incorporates a luxurious steam shower and stand-alone bathtub. The Suite Royale Orientale exudes chic contemporary style with bespoke artwork including beautifully embroidered headboards and furniture by Maison Lesage.
This beautiful suite now has its own private 75 square-metre terrace. Agency Christophe Gautrand & Associés created this true outdoor extension, with a lounge, outside dining area and elegant pergola which has a removable roof to enjoy the sunshine. Subtle vegetation is used to form a natural setting and enhance the magnificent views over the Opera, Madeleine and Montmartre. “Oriental touches are mingled with Parisian identity to create a very special place on the rooftop,” said Christophe Gautrand. The lines, materials and details create a warm and enchanting space, whilst the floor is made out of tropical ipé wood, carved by a Parisian cabinetmaker who created these bas-reliefs depicting a floral baroque style.
Metal pots line the terrace and are covered with rivets, like those that are found on many Parisian monuments and furniture of the early twentieth century such as the Eiffel Tower and the structure of overhead subway lines. At the foot of these flowers pots, as a reference to the Parisian night scene, a line of cobblestones illuminated by a bright ribbon highlights the edge of the terrace.
The shrubs and delightful white flowers such as Japanese maples, Camellias, Phormium and Star Jasmine, evoke a tropical atmosphere in the heart of Paris. “By playing on the combination of plant species and the colour of foliage, we sought to create a Parisian Eastern chimera” adds Christophe Gautrand. Subtle touches of green anise, fine furnishings and soft lighting round off the warm, exotic and welcoming atmosphere of this unique terrace.
The Suite Royale Orientale with its own private and very Parisian terrace is available from EUR 15,000 per night.
