The presidential suite
In its high ceilings, full length windows, and tumbling moulded swags and garlands, this apartment embodies the patrician panache of its neighbouring Senat, France’s upper house of parliament. The marble statue in the hall speaks classical jurisprudence to the decadently assembled Louis XV chairs and dark wood escritoires. And the Persian rugs beneath glass-fronted cabinets of leather-bound tomes line the walls between mirrors and oil-painted portraits. Just beyond your door you'll find the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg, and the haute delights of both Sèvres-Babylone and Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
Paris and her history run in the veins of your hosts – he worked in the Senat, she has lived in this apartment all her life. Their power-brokering days behind them, they’re contented taking pleasure in entertaining their grandchildren and vacationing in the South.
The dining room's courtly, glass oval table takes the floor – space for dignified family meals or conversation after long days in high-powered places. This home's fine art is testament to its noble pedigree, landscapes lining the walls, and the wrought iron candelabra overhanging pink velvet Gentleman's chairs are savoir-faire manifest.
The bedrooms' window seats, framed by long tulle curtains, are just right for reading. No doubt they’ve been a setting for Romantic period dramas, as well as political papers.
