Love of detail. Passion. Creativity. The just opened Hôtel Particulier Villeroy in Paris is enriched by works of art, specifically created by Promemoria artisans. Each of the guest rooms, the public areas and the restaurant, are unique, as the meticulously crafted furnishings are tailored to each individual environment. Hôtel Particulier Villeroy is located in Paris’s Golden Triangle, marking The Collection’s first foray into hotels. Once a private mansion dating back to 1908, and now listed as a “Monument Historique”, the property has undergone extensive renovations to become an intimate and chic boutique hotel.
The accommodation comprises only 11 contemporary and elegant guest apartments, suites and rooms. Each room features the superlatively beautiful hand-crafted Italian furniture from Promemoria with each piece exactingly curated and designed by Romeo Sozzi, and his son Davide to complement the layout, colors and material in order to preserve perfect harmony with the structural parts of the interiors, such as alcoves, built-in cabinets, wardrobes, mirrors, and an open luxurious kitchen modelled on the Promemoria Angelina kitchen.
Not only has Promemoria furnished the rooms, but also the public areas for guests such as the Trente-Trois restaurant, the Jean Goujon bar, the reception, the meeting room, the external areas of the wellness and spa and, the grand entrance hall. The Trente-Trois restaurant, for example, features exceptional Rachele chairs in bronze and leather, which are inspired by the literary salons that took place in some historic villas of Lake Como, and the impressive wooden Bassano tables that lend themselves perfectly to the surroundings. The bar at Jean Goujon is a unique piece, designed ad hoc by Promemoria, matched by the iconic Bilou Bilou bar stools – Mr. Sozzi’s personal interpretation of the Café Thonet Chair No.14 – and small Boccaccio velour sofas in soothing shades of azure.
From the designer Romeo Sozzi:
“When I was asked to design this boutique hotel, I was really excited about the opportunity as this project perfectly reflects our philosophy, and values of the company: love for detail, passion and innovation.
The hotel is small with only 11 guest rooms that will instantly make you feel at home. The challenge was to preserve the original structure of this historic place, enhancing its peculiarities by creating exceptional pieces and finding ad hoc solutions specifically designed for this project.
I am really proud of the bar, which is a unique piece all in bronze – one of the materials frequently utilized by our craftsmen, and the welcoming Angelina kitchen inside the apartments designed with emperador marble “
