It’s a first in France: Maison Lalique signs its first luxury suite in partnership with designer Patrick Hellmann and settles in Prince de Galles hotel Paris. This famous palace that has just celebrated its 90-year anniversary unveils a genuine design masterpiece that looks timeless and highlights the Parisian style.
This iconic suite covers 165sqm on two stories and can feature up to three bedrooms. It’s the renovation of the presidential suite of Prince de Galles. This exceptional setting is a true ode to Art Déco and makes it the symbol of French style. Here, Lalique iconic style is inherent to the typical charm of a Parisian flat.
In the office area, black is mixed to gold with a mosaic which finesse elevates the art that spreads out like a glass carpet. On the walls, we have crystal pieces by Lalique and twisted by Patrick Hellmann to create a never-seen-before wall clock.
A spiral staircase takes us to the upper floor, and we discover on the walls some crystal yokes with a floral pattern, one of the many signature works of Maison Lalique that enable a beautiful contrast with the black and shiny mosaic. Here, light effects help to embellish this luxury suite.
A lounge as warm as the softest house is set. Made of gold and ebony, this living room evokes a clean style and reminds us what French glamor is. On the shelf, we discover vases that make the fame of Lalique, especially with swallows. A patio door invites us to go to the terrace that enjoys wonderful views on Paris rooftops and the timeless Iron Lady.
We cross the upstairs rooms one by one. A dining room with woodworks and gold contrasts with the ebony lounge but provides the same feeling of comfort and warmth. A glass ceiling brightens the room up with day light and we can even get a hint of the Sacré Coeur.
In the marble bathroom, a bathtub with views on the Eiffel Tower proudly sits in the middle of beautiful mosaics, and in the master’s bedroom, a king size bed is surrounded by lamps representing Arethusa, one of the muses inspiring Lalique collections. A panel also displays an art-deco pattern as a nod to the house crystallin universe.
All in all, we enjoy a 280° view on the most beautiful gems in town while learning more about the history of Maison Lalique. Elegant up to the very details with pieces that are mostly handmade especially for Prince de Galles, this suite is the symbol of the reputation of Paris as the capital of luxury and fashion.
