Following hot on the heels of its Moscow store, interior design practice Crosby Studios has installed its trademark royal blue palette inside the 17th century Hôtel de Coulanges in Paris.
Located in the Marais, the former mansion was once home to aristocracy – including the children of Louis XIV. The building was fully renovated in 2015 by Philippe Rizzotti and is now host to a range of temporary pop-ups, exhibitions and fashion events as the creative incubator of Dover Street Market.
The interior design studio is the latest brand to take over the space, installing a minimalist collection of furniture daubed in the rich blue the practice is associated with. Guests stepping through the mansion’s rococo arch will discover a line of blue benches and stools in the courtyard, while the menu for the Paris cafe is courtesy of Rose Bakery.
Crosby Studios founder Harry Nuriev describes the pop-up as ‘a place to enter an alternate reality within a traditional Parisian mansion’.
