Located in the 19th-century former home of poet and artist Jean Cocteau, the interior design of our House in the heart of the French capital honours the city’s creative past
Inspired by the building's connections to the art world, Soho House Paris features influences drawn from Cocteau's distinctive style across five floors, including a mosaic-tiled floor in the entrance and murals by artist Roberto Ruspoli in the bedrooms.
This sets the tone for the building's art collection as a whole, which is made up entirely of paintings - a first for Soho House. 'For me, Paris is the home of painting,' says Kate Bryan, Head of Collections, of her decision to curate Soho House Paris this way. 'Each artist was commissioned to respond to their own wall panel in whatever style they chose.'
To complement the building's classic architecture, interiors are sumptuous and sophisticated. Its rich yet muted colour palette is paired with materials such as velvet for upholstery and marble for surfaces, with an emphasis on fringing and trims, for a heritage feel.
