Given the exclusive historical location, the architecture and the surrounding nature Sundukovy Sisters design studio felt inspired to develop an interior concept harmoniously accompanying the architectural ensemble of Versailles while combining contemporary elegance with classic refinement.
Architect: Sundukovy Sisters design studio
Quality: Highline 80/20 1400 (wool/nylon) for the reception and lounge area, Highline 80/20 1100 (wool/nylon) and Highline 1100 for the corridors and rooms
Design: Custom design – The design idea for Hotel Le Louis Versailles Château MGallery by Sofitel materialised in French crystal, antique mirrors and mouldings that are mixed and matched with elegant pieces of furniture and modern materials such as concrete, but also photoprint and art.
Carpet as the preferred flooring material
Sundukovy Sisters design studio decided to install carpet on the existing floor as an effective solution to meet budget and timescale.
Ege’s custom carpet design options appealed to the design studio, as the desired pattern comprised a paraphrase of the iconic landscape of the Gardens of Versailles.
Colours, materials, patterns and shapes tell the story
A rich emerald-green colour combined with a concrete inspired texture to create an elegant and luxurious setting in the hotel’s reception and lounge areas.
The royal ambience of the carpet design reflects the famous lawn pattern of the gardens and compliments the rest of the interiors perfectly.
A look of aged concrete is transferred to the walls too and blends in beautifully with the décor in antique gold and dark green, the colours of the Versailles parks.
Moreover, reception desks with cone-shaped elements represent the cone-cut trees in the gardens of Versailles.
A bespoke ceiling painting features a design from one of the Versailles Palace rooms, perfectly in line with other decorative elements in concrete like texture.
One of the highlights in the lobby interior is the chic bar’s stunning chandelier imitating the form of the roof of the classic palace.
Using classical textures in a contemporary surrounding allowed us to implement the design idea.
We focused on baroque ornaments and elements, made in contemporary materials and added a note of irony, which is typical for our style.
We brought the stylised patterns of the Gardens of Versailles greenhouse into the interiors.
Thus, the hotel interior mirrors the location and becomes an important part of the hotel stay – Irina and Olga Sundukovy, Architects
