Entrance Hall: preserving classical decorative panels
The Greeting Desk: a touch of modernism

Lelièvre, the high-end fabric designer and manufacturer, redesigned its historic showroom at 13, rue du Mail (the high-end textile street in Paris ’ 2nd arrondissement) in 2007. Since its establishment in 1914, many still see Lelièvre as the paragon of French fabric excellence. Unique creations and unparralled know-how are Lelièvre’s trade-mark. Lelièvre’s portfolio of brands include: Kenzo home, Missoni home, Tassinari et Chatel, Alcantara, Gaston y Daniela.

Architect Jean-Philippe Nuel has designed this exquisite space. To respect the individual character of each brand and yet highlight each product the renovation had to be discreet. Nuel refreshed the traditional Parisian style, applying shades of prune and echoing the circles on the ceiling with the circles on the floor.
