La Maison du Caviar
The chic of the Orient Express and the dashing glamour.
What project could be more beautiful for the duo of decorators Jacques Bec and Artur Miranda than to reinvent this mythical Parisian institution? La Maison du Caviar opened its restaurant in 1956, and the 2018 version imagined by Jacques and Artur is a hymn to timeless luxury, a cruise in the Paris of the 1930s, the spirit of the Normandie liner, the fluidity of streamliners, the chic of the Orient Express and the dashing glamour of the 1950s. All of these are inspirations and nods remastered with a very contemporary twist by the talented studio OITOEMPONTO. A real dining room immersed in a dreamlike aquarium thanks to the stylized decor of a seabed inhabited by seaweed and golden corals, a hand-painted paper panorama by de Gournay. Beige wool tweeds and copper wire for the benches, sea-urchin ceiling lights, coral sconces by Hervé Van der Straeten, a wood and brass cloisonné mirror signed OITOEMPONTO and a Ruhlmann style console, everything is in place to savor the caviar of life. We were delighted to be part of the redesign with our bespoke Matilde Chair, the upholstered benches in very 60s style pearly mica velvet, and the stools dot the bar like so many golden studded velvet tambourines, the green velvet sofa that runs along the walls of beveled mirrors. Very 70s style Ottomans in a Bordeaux Velvet. All the presented pieces were exclusively made for OITOEMPONTO, therefore protected and safeguarded by current provisions concerning copyright, intellectual and industrial property rights. Our Matilde Chair can only be sold as standard and not has present within this project.
