One of the most anticipated openings of the year, LVMH Hospitality’s 72-room Cheval Blanc Paris is situated in the La Samaritaine building overlooking the Eiffel Tower. Remodelled by architect Edouard François, the listed building’s interior was reimagined by star-architect Peter Marino in the style of a Parisian residence. Marino commissioned and curated artworks and furniture throughout its nine floors. Among the highlights are artist Vik Muniz’s works of the Eiffel tower, photography by Nicholas Ruel and David Drebin and Thierry Dreyfus’s elevator installation. The Dior Spa has six treatment rooms including the astrology-themed Bonne Etoile, with a bespoke ceiling featuring constellations. The spa includes a fireplace and bookcases alongside a 30m swimming pool and a Rossano Ferretti hair salon.
