Restore - Chintz - Modernise
The Aigle Noir Hotel is an inspiring place, inspired by its illustrious guests, its experience and its long history.
What a pleasure it was to hunt, to find in the cellars among the treasures of more than 300 years of history, objects to be restored, modernised for some, to be framed, dusted for others, to be dramatised like this wall of "broken" plates in our restaurant A l'Epicerie, symbolising an anecdote to be told to you, with pleasure
We have had the pleasure of working with various French companies, including the craftsman Zuber, over the years.
This factory, founded in 1790, opened the Wallpaper Museum in 1983 and continues its unique, traditional know-how in its workshops, which has attracted the entire world. Today, the ZUBER Manufacture still uses for a large part of its production all the traditional hand techniques used since its creation, and mainly woodblock printing carved on hand-brushed backgrounds. A true "living heritage".
