Iconic project

French boiseries for The Pierre

A legendary suite at the Pierre hotel

The Pierre is an Art Deco building from the 1930s that stands on the edge of Central Park. It includes the eponymous New York luxury hotel, together with some 20 stories of private apartments. In collaboration with Féau Boiseries, the interior designers Alexandra and Michael Misczynski have created a unique atmosphere for one of the pied-à-terre.

Classical decor and contemporary art

Alexandra and Michael Misczynski are known for their skill at creating an interplay between design and artworks. To establish a dialogue with contemporary elements, Guillaume Féau recommended understated paneling in thegrand and elegant Louis XVI style that is embodied by Marie Antoinette’s Petit Trianon at Versailles.

Contrasts and a feeling for detail

Artworks are naturally at home in a decor that embraces detail. The carved ornamentation on the chair rail remains discreet but is very elaborate.

Louis XIV boiserie for Guerlain

Cornice by Christian Dior

This historic piece from the Féau collection served as an inspiration for this project. It is a cornice design that originally adorned the salons of Christian Dior’s historic premises on Avenue Montaigne, which were decorated in 1947 by Victor Grandpierre.
