Desjeux Delaye : Hôtel Louvre Piémont

In Paris (1er), a few steps away from the Comédie Française hides the Louvre Piedmont, a chic and retro hotel completely renovated last September by the firm of interior design and design Desjeux Delaye. A sophisticated and relaxed world, the Louvre Piémont offers a timeless escape to its occupants through a mix of genres and eras.

In 2016, the French property developer Quartus embarks on the hotel business and acquires two high-end establishments in Paris, the Kapital Opéra (8e) and the Louvre Piedmont (1er), that he renovates completely. The rehabilitation project of the latter, Haussmann's six-level hotel founded in 1940 by the Piedmont family, is entrusted to the Desjeux Delaye duo, which offers an eclectic style, with noble materials and straight lines.

With its olive green glazed facade, surmounted by a burgundy red lambrequin, and its XXL handles with its initials, the Louvre Piedmont invites passers-by to snuggle up in its warm lobby. Past this entrance, is a ground floor consisting of a reception delimited by a desk covered with gray marble behind which keys and mail are stored in a wooden frame, materials reused in the living space arranged opposite, in a wall-inlaid bookcase. In this room are also installed pieces of furniture all more striking than each other: bright red armchair, black bench with cylindrical cushions or wooden tables formed cones assembled head to tail, each element has its own identity creating a cinematic-looking decor.
On the mezzanine floor is the restaurant with furniture in light tones and golden geometric sculptures.


In the twenty rooms of the hotel spread over five floors, decorated in three combinations of colors - burgundy and taupe, white and turquoise, or orange and brown - we find the linear pattern of the lambrequin on the curtains, the head of bed and cushions. The client will also find a desk half-wood half-metal reminiscent of the 1950 years, a rectangular dressing convex angles hanging on the wall with sliding mirror door and a bathroom with molded tiles, speckled basin and terrazzo floor.

It would take one night to lose the notion of time.
