Le Meurice Reveals New Room Designs

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Le Meurice, the historic Paris hotel and one of the premier properties of the Dorchester Collection, recently tapped acclaimed French designer Charles Jouffre to redesign its luxurious rooms and suites. Debuted in April 2009, Jouffre highlighted the hotel’s grace and style with an updated aesthetic—combining their chic French history with a more modernized elegance and glamour. As anyone residing in the original Parisian palace hotel on Rue de Rivoli will quickly discover, he succeeded in evoking the spirit of Le Meurice’s French genius art of living.

The designer has created sumptuous drapes and hangings for the Grand Foyer at the Opera Garnier, as well as curtains and upholstery for leading interior designers including Jacques Garcia and Philippe Starck, who recently led a major redesign of Le Meurice. An artisan since the age of 16, Jouffre opened his own atelier in 1987. As a founding member of Association Prestige et Tradition, he uses 17th-century techniques as part of a contemporary and ecological methodology.

From April, Le Meurice opens the doors of its new guest rooms and suites for a unique experience, and invites you to discover a world of precious, intimate, infinite affinities. More than ever, the art of being and well-being is elevated to the rank of fine art.
