Café Après-Midi Est Servi!

February 21, 2012

In our twitter bio we say that we “love meetings over good coffee” and that we certainly do, which is why today’s feature project had to have a place on our blog. Hotel De Vendôme in Paris has opened the doors of their exquisite restaurant that serves the most luxurious and decadent afternoon coffee in the French Capital, yes you read that right, afternoon coffee and not afternoon tea. Not only do we love the idea of afternoon coffee but we also love the elegant setting it is served in.

Designed by Florence based Architect Michele Bönan, 1 Place Vendôme is the epitome of chic, sophisticated Parisian style. We simply adore the chairs; my mind can’t help but picture Audrey Hepburn sitting in them, her glamorous yet understated style is something that immediately becomes synonymous to me when I look at the pictures below. Moreover, the stunning architectural detailing on the walls gives this project so much character, and yet it is so subtle, like most aspects of this design subtlety is the real catalyst that makes this space so appealing and charming. The neutral and soft color palette is lifted by simple little additions such as the patterned chairs, the pale pink cushions, the beige curtains and sumptuous lighting, all of these elements come together beautifully in this stylish and elegant restaurant.
