Situated within Paris’ Golden Triangle, in a 1913 post-Haussmann building, the iconic Hotel Vernet Champs Elysées has emerged from a complete makeover that has seen local architect François Champsaur transform the once-traditional interiors into the epitome of contemporary Parisian chic. Making the most of its surrounding architecture, the 50 guest rooms and public spaces, including the hotel's restaurant, housed under an ornate glass ceiling originally designed by civil engineer Gustave Eiffel, have been designed with warming tactile materials in welcoming tones.
MADE BY ORIGINALS
Anne Jousse worked in the family insurance business for 20 years before turning her sights towards hospitality. The savvy businesswoman has since built a small, but expanding, empire of four- and five-star luxury boutique hotels in France, including the Bel Ami in Saint-Germain-des-Prés on Paris's Left Bank and also the chateaux-like Domaine de La Bretesche in Brittany. For Jousse, luxury is an emotion. This is perhaps most evident in the intimate, family-like service at her hotels, where a welcoming atmosphere is given the highest priority.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Set in a 1913 building off the Champs-Élysées, the 50-room Hotel Vernet reopened in 2014. The original post-Haussmann building is the work of French architect Albert Joseph Sélonier, who designed just under 300 buildings in the capital. Renowned for reworking buildings from a multitude of periods and styles into his own unique vision, François Champsaur made his own contemporary mark on this archetype of Haussmann and Art Deco elegance. Modern art, from the likes of French visual artist Jean-Michel Alberola, is seen not just on the walls but also in the textiles, fabrics, and furniture at Hotel Vernet. The marbled interiors and golden fixtures in the bathrooms are typical of this refurbishment that celebrates contemporary elegance and French craftsmanship.
