Contemporary Classicism in Paris


Next up on the Ultraloft Inspiration tour is the home of couture fashion, classical architecture and a nonchalant design dialogue that's as elegant as the residents of it's perfectly planned streets. Paris.

With the Ritz being closed for renovations and not wanting to stray far from the eponymous Place Vendôme, Design Trawler checked in to the Royal Suite at the Westin Paris. Recently refreshed by Sybille de Margerie [who also worked on the Mandarin Oriental and the Louvre Hotel], the suite defines contemporary classicism. Rotating the formal seating area through 45 degrees and the palette of contemporary taupe, plum and geometric metalics gives the living room a 'modern luxe' timelessness.

Mirrors framed by curtains create an illusion of internal windows
Fabrics are classic yet contemporary in rich and bold metalics
The formal seating layout is rotated through 45 degrees
Clever choice of pattern works with more period artifacts
Over sized wrap-around headboard in aged milk-chocolate leather
