Discover the renovation of La Suite Belle-Etoile, decorated by the interior designers Lally & Berger, in collaboration with Jouffre.
"Charles was the first person to believe in our ideas and to show his trust by working with us on various projects, while also making his experience and know-how available to us. Jouffre's unique mastery has enabled us to grow and make our mark, so that we can now roll back our creative boundaries even further."
Founded in 1835 in Paris, Le Meurice is filled with all kinds of beautiful anecdotes and stories. Nicknamed the King Hotel because of its many royal guests and a symbol of the art of living by excellence, the famed Parisian Palace has been constantly renewed over the years.
In 2016, the interior designers Lally & Berger and Jouffre collaborated on the realization of the Suite Pompadour and give the residence a royal spirit.
Three years later, and thanks to the success of this first collaboration, Le Meurice called on their confidence in Lally & Berger Studio and Jouffre artisans to renovate the Suite Belle Etoile. This terrace-apartment offers a breathtaking view of Paris and marks a new era beginning for Le Meurice where 29 rooms and suites have been redecorated.
Over a span of several months, Jouffre and the two designers meticulously selected the fabrics for the Suite Belle Etoile. The bedspread of the main room and the embroidered curtains of the Suite were manufactured with Holland & Sherry fabric. In the living room, the motorized curtains were conceived in an IDO fabric. The net curtains come from the Maison Dedar.
In the living room, a golden and iridescent sheer is positioned in front of the curtains, creating a unique and eye catching detail. The curtains, extremely delicate, required great care and real know-how from the Jouffre craftsmen during their fabrication, transport and installation.
For the home cinema, Jouffre upholsterers created seating with four corner modules and four straight modules. These eight elements, fully modular, can be adjusted according to the customers' wishes. The Mégalithe meridian, as well as its corresponding side table, were designed by Studio Lally & Berger and created by Jouffre, and sits like a sculpture in the entrance to the Suite.
The headboard of the main bedroom is a decorative element in its own right. Its bronze frame is covered by a set of panels covered in Rubelli fabric. Like the pieces of a puzzle, twenty elements make up this custom-made set designed by Studio Lally & Berger. The manufacture and installation of these panels represented a real technical challenge for the craftsmen who worked more than three hundred hours to its realization.
This collaboration is a beautiful memory for Jouffre. In this impressive place, some had the impression that “Paris is only there for you”.
