Just few days ago, Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris introduces a new penthouse suite designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon and offering 360 degree views of the Paris city.
With six terraces offering a 360 degree view of Paris and 160 square metres (1,630 square feet) of pure luxury, this new Penthouse offers a romantic hideaway among Paris rooftops. The understated, light and airy interior architecture puts the emphasis on open and elegant spaces. The soft tones of the travertine flooring are reflected in the walls decorated with sycamore and majilite, while the beautiful floral arrangements created by Jeff Leatham, the Hotel’s Artistic Director, create a sense of home the moment one opens the door.
Among the great surprises of the Penthouse Suite is the elegant winter garden, decorated in floral fabric and separated from the living room by a wrought iron door. At any time of the day or night it is the perfect place to enjoy a meal or drink while overlooking the Invalides, the American Cathedral and Eiffel Tower. The terrace, shaped like the bow of a ship, provides an even wider view of the City of Light: the roofs of the Madeleine, the Opera and the Pantheon are at one’s feel while the Eiffel Tower seems so close one almost touch it. From the terrace, steps lead to an intimate upper balcony perched even higher on the roof, where guests can enjoy a last glass of Champagne and savour the shimmering Eiffel Tower. The bedroom with its own terrace is a new invitation to peacefulness. An elegant four-poster daybed invites to the most romantic nap perched high above the hustle and bustle of Paris.
Another gem in this suite is the spectacular beige marble bathroom, designed to be as luxurious as a lounge. Next to the huge walk-in shower stands a grand overflow bath fitted with jets and a chromotherapy system. Elegant white orchids give the impression that the outdoor extends right into the bathroom while a large dressing room bathed in natural light is decorated like a boudoir.
The brain behind this spectacular apartment is Pierre-Yves Rochon. He worked with the biggest luxury houses such as Baccarat, Lalique, Lelièvre, Edmond Petit, Veraseta and Bobic (a Slovenian company specializing in yachting) for the furnishings and fittings, demonstrating the importance he attaches to precision, aesthetics and high standards.
