An esoteric spot and a hotel unlike any other, Cour des Vosges instantly invites you to immerse yourself into the life of a noble French family dating back to the 16th century. A family of art lovers and collectors that has enjoyed gathering sculptures, ceramics, tapestries, and furnishings over the decades, representing various artistic movements and the experiences of generations of patrons of the arts.
For Cour des Vosges, interior designers Yann Le Coadic and Alessandro Scotto reached back into Paris’s history and explored the past like archaeologists, in order to reveal its beauty, uniqueness, and strength. In dealing with a historic landmark with original painted ceiling beams and period terra cotta floors, the guiding theme of their design was to protect, preserve, and respect the authenticity and spirit of the building.
Their priority is to completely fulfill the needs and desires of those who seek their expertise. Decorators Yann Le Coadic and Alessandro Scotto adapt to a building, a site, or an environment, and not the other way around. This is true for any situation and any project. They have the same operating method when designing a luxury store, an apartment in the Palais Royal gardens, or a 5-star hotel on the Place des Vosges. They know how to build, construct, and write a brand-new contemporary story for each of their projects. Theirs is a human take on their profession: they draw out an “atmospheric” ambiance within the clear lines of the architectural setting.
Art is present everywhere in this mansion: statues and paintings mingle with old books, first editions, and award-winning novels.
Cour des Vosges has relied on expert curators: the exclusive selection of artworks is curated by gallerist Amélie du Chalard. Anatole Desachy, independent bookseller, has chosen the books and magazines, both recent publications and rare and collectible items. Founder and creative director, Fred Viktor, handles musical artistic direction at Cour des Vosges.
