the visual signature of a new place to live
Located in the former private mansion of the Duke of Morny, Le Taillevent is one of the most beautiful addresses in Paris, with reminiscences of an aristocratic past, divided between the first floor with its two dining rooms, and the second floor where the private rooms listed in the supplementary inventory of historical monuments are used for private functions. Cut stone, pilasters, pediments, capitals…
The spectacular and somewhat intimidating historical setting, even formal and masculine, were the reason to convince Thierry and Laurent Gardinier to entrust a new interpretation of this rich heritage to the interior architect Yann Montfort.
The goal? To round off the angles, to bring a new conviviality by even unfolding the scenario of a rediscovered femininity by dint of curves, in a setting until now dominated by radical lines.
As for the masterly staircase, it now serves as a magnificent link between the Trianon room, mineral and privileging the intimacy of three alcoves (one of which seats eight people, observing the landscape of a real garden lining the inner courtyard) and the Lamenais room, historically the main dining room, emblematic for its oak woodwork that coats some 40 place settings.
