Paris is the city of light, and it was also the stage for many romantic scenes during the mid-1950s and 1960s. “We’ll always have Paris”, right? The stage for some of the world’s most beautiful architecture and Art Deco-inspired designs, it comes as no surprise that this Parisian hotel is pretty much an Art Deco and mid-century lighting wonderland.
In the reception, the Art Deco style prevails and can be found in blown glass lamps, rusty-toned velvet sofas, paneled walls and mosaic flooring.

Amy is an irreverent table lamp by DelightFULL that will surely look great on top of a desk or sideboard. Handmade in brass and with its lampshades in aluminum exactly like it was made in the 50’s.
The Art Nouveau inspired counter artfully composed of darkened walnut wood, white marble and brass shine in the reception of this impressive hotel with modern touches.
Mirrors also play a strong role in the ambiance of the restaurant. The predominantly blue tones along with rusty orange touches on the velvet banquet seating and chairs and the almost nautically-inspired stripes appear inlaid on the rim of the counter and the edges of the tables.
The charismatic Herbie standing lamp by DelightFULL was inspired by Herbie Hancock’s great personality. Very interesting with bright colors and it will surely bring joy to any mid-century setting.
Every forty guest rooms have a similar color scheme of white, gray, blue and green but that doesn’t mean that any of the room are identical. Each one of them has been appointed to suit its individual architectural characteristics.
One room features a vibrant wallpaper in a blue arrow design and a subdued carpet pattern, while in another room, the carpet’s pulsating pattern seems to dance beneath guests’ feet along with walls painted a restrained white and dark blue.
A few retro elements can be found in every single room, such as the brass bar, the glass globe light fixture, the polygonal mirrors, the replica Ericsson 1931 black telephones and the 1920’s era ceramic light switches on the walls.
All in all, Hotel Panache offers everything you can expect from a hotel in the French capital. From a creativity employed by the team that brought Panache into fruition to a decor full of special features, this is a hotel you shouldn’t miss when in Paris.
