So we all know that Paris is synonymous with style. It is one of the undisputed centres, if not the undisputed centre, of the fashion industry and has a fine art pedigree that can be challenged by very few other cities, with the city’s old-world European grandeur, matched only by its stylish urban modernity. This is embodied by Paris’ fashionista hotel, La Maison Champs Élysée.
The La Maison de Champs Élysées is, as the name suggests, positioned right off the most famous, “shop until you drop” boulevard in the city, not to mention the world.
It’s part of Paris’ ‘Golden Triangle’ and as such, it fits into the strict and very beautiful 19th-century architectural rules set down by Napoleon. Yet, once you step inside the La Maison Champs Élysée, modern Paris hits you right between the eyes. Minimalist, beautiful and surprising. After all, it was recently remodelled by none other than the darling of the Fashion world Martin Margiela (his first interior project).
We found the whole space absolutely playful, whimsical, quirky and sophisticated – deconstructing standard proportions with beautiful lashings of monochrome and design features throughout the property that we just couldn’t take our eyes off.
With just 57 intimate rooms and attentive, polished service that was almost elegant, we felt very special indeed. The Hotel La Maison Champs Élysée is an absolutely fitting tribute to what was once the home of the Duchess of Rivoli.
