The Mandarin Oriental has announced an exciting new opening at its Paris hotel. This summer, the five-star property will launch a 430 square-metre Parisian apartment suite, one of the largest suites in Paris.
The sixth-floor apartment will offer some of the best views in the city overlooking the hotel’s lush inner garden and Rue Saint-Honoré. The new suite is designed by the acclaimed French agency Gilles & Boissier as a large single level chic Parisian apartment.
Within the suite there will be four elegant bedrooms and bathrooms, an expansive reception area, bright dining room and fully equipped kitchen. For flexibility, the suite can be divided into two connecting two-bedroom suites
“The apartment is designed to make the most of the natural light and will offer guests a comfortable, calm and elegant space. It mixes design codes and influences, like a free and daring Parisienne of today would do,” explains Dorothée Boissier, “It incorporates the codes of the Haussmann style as much as those of Art-Déco. The 1900s mouldings sitting beautifully with wooden architectural features reminiscent of the 1930s”.
“The blonde parquet flooring, inspired by the Herringbone style, will be partly covered with thick carpets depicting geometric patterns. The leather-covered pivot doors evoke memories of spectacular antique Chinese panels, while the furniture, custom designed by Patrick Gilles, will be made from a variety of different types of wood and silky fabrics” she added.
The new suite will also include a 230 Parisian terrace, designed by Christophe Gautrand & Associates inspired by traditional French gardens.
“We are proud to add this new Parisian Apartment to our collection of signature suites,” said Philippe Leboeuf, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Paris and Area Vice President of Operations. “I enjoyed working with Gilles & Bossier, when I first met them at our resort in Marrakech, and I am thrilled they have now joined the creative ‘dream team’ at Mandarin Oriental, Paris to create a truly Parisian experience for guests to enjoy.”
