Mandarin Oriental, Paris - L'Appartement Parisien

Mandarin Oriental, Paris will launch a 430 square metre Parisian Apartment suite, one of the largest suites in Paris, this summer.

Located on the 6th floor with magnificent views, the spacious new ‘Haussmann style’ suite is being designed by the acclaimed French agency Gilles & Boissier as a large single level chic Parisian apartment, overlooking the hotel’s lush inner garden and Rue Saint-Honoré.

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.

For this newest suite, landscape designers Christophe Gautrand & Associates have imagined an authentic 230 square-metre Parisian terrace inspired by French gardens.

Making full use of the private terrace’s spaciousness, the designers will create several different environments, each with their own special ambiance that can be adapted easily to changing desires and seasons. It will be a lush, peaceful haven in the middle of the vibrant Saint Honoré district.

“We are proud to add this new Parisian Apartment to our collection of signature suites. 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,” said Philippe Leboeuf, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Paris and Area Vice President of Operations.
