“Close to the department store district and the Garnier Opera, the Idol Hotel is located in the Rue d’Edimbourg, in a neighborhood long favored by music lovers.” This couldn’t make more sense, seeing as the whole hotel is lightened up by one of our favorite mid-century inspired brands: DelightFULL. It is the perfect hotel for you to stay and be inspired by some of the best mid-century lighting designs before catching an Uber to M&O!
Dating back to 1854, the building was formerly an hôtel de passe (a short-time hotel) before its complete renovation overseen by Parisian architect Philippe Medioni. The Penthouse suite has a very stylish sitting area that features two beautiful Maya velvet armchairs and a sofa from BRABBU’s collection, a full appointed cocktail bar, and even a desk record player with a selection of vinyl records. The perfect place to relax before arriving at Maison et Objet 2017!
Ideally located near the Jardin des Tuileries, Le Roch Hôtel & Spa Paris is a 5-star hotel where neat decoration and elegant atmosphere meet. Designed by the architect and interior designer Sarah Lavoine, this is an exceptional designer hotel that you won’t want to miss during your stay in Paris next September! When designing this hospitality project, the acclaimed interior designer was inspired by the codes of the Parisian style, which she then proceeded to emphasize. Attentive to detail, Sarah Lavoine took great care not only in the choice of colors but also in the furniture, which she partially designed.
The Renaissance Paris Republique Hotel is the latest project by the Renaissance Hotels group. Located in La République – Paris new it district – the seventies building which used to be a temporary home for traveling artists was given a makeover by the acclaimed designer Didier Gomez. The idea behind this project was to make Republique Hotel mirror the diversity lived in the city, something the interior designer honored exceptionally well. “Everything including the reception desks recalling China, African-style fabrics, gray stone quarried in France and local furniture and artworks, points to the ‘real’ multicultural Paris,” explained Gomez to Wallpaper*.
“A sense of the pleasure and of French savoir-faire are at work from the salon lounge to the bedrooms crafted by some of France’s finest workmen.” This is what is promised by Maison Albar Hotels once you step your foot inside their luxurious Paris hotel. And although we have never personally stayed at the hotel, we can guarantee you that you will feel a chic mid-century vibe everywhere you go during your stay. This is made possible by having DelightFULL’s pendant lamps scattered a little bit all over the hotel. A great way to start your journey through the best hotels in Paris and getting ready for the biggest trade show in the city!
For those of you who are traveling to Maison et Objet 2017 on a budget, but are still looking for a way to do it in style, this Philippe Starck designed hotel is the right place for you! At Mama Shelter Paris, “the 172 rooms entirely conceived by Philippe Starck are equipped with a 5-Star bedding and lively interiors.” All the rooms mix exposed concrete walls, white bed linen, and graphic custom-made carpets, with fairground masks that double as lampshades. They are also equipped with microwave and multimedia iMac!
Hotel Sofitel Le Faubourg is a 5-star hotel located in the heart of Paris. A luxurious design by Didier Gomez, one of the most famous interior designers in France, offers comfort and indulgence. This upscale establishment, set in a grand townhouse-style building, boasts 147 refined rooms and suites individually designed. Guests have also breathtaking views over the Parisian rooftops.
In this mid-century inspired hotel, the bedrooms are probably more than you could ever wish for. According to The Telegraph, they “feature suave black-and-white wrap-around bedheads, combined with zigzag cushions, carpets that look like a mishmash of Prince of Wales checks and tweeds and framed fashion photos on the walls.”
At Hotel Jules & Jim in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris, the 23 rooms are divided over series of small buildings, where “life centers around the convivial paved courtyard with its planted wall and real outdoor fireplace and the bar in a converted silversmith’s workshop.” There is a sense of modernity that is paired with a retro chic feeling, especially in the bar where the seemingly old hardwood flooring contrasts with the contemporary chairs and white counter.
Near Les Invalides, Le Cinq Codet was a stunning addition to Paris’ 7th arrondissement, which until now didn’t have that many options concerning luxury boutique hotels. “Designed by Jean-Philippe Nuel, natural wood, clever lighting and original paintings and photos are quietly luxurious. The 67 bedrooms combine masses of thick natural wood and cool neutral colors.”
