Hotel “Villa Lalique”, France


Gorgeous decanters created in partnership with renowned luxury houses pose elegantly, like film stars, on beautiful glass-fronted shelves. To reach the six suites decorated by Lady Tina Green and Pietro Mingarelli, one climbs a black staircase, identical to the original, dominated by a Champs-Élysées chandelier. Each of the suites – Hirondelles, Rose, Dahlia, Masque de Femme, Dragon and Zeila – is unique, bearing the name of an emblematic creation by René Lalique (except for Zeila, the name of the panther designed by Marie-Claude Lalique) and referring to a decade in the master glassmaker’s life. Each is decorated in colours that go with the suite motif. House creations are used to great effect, even in the smallest details. The furniture, chosen from the Lalique Mason furniture collection and customised by the interior design team, is white, beige, black or blue lacquer in a pure Art Deco style.
