What's new in Paris? Unique visits, stunning exhibitions, special meet ‘n’ greets, take a glance at what the first edition of Maison&Objet In The City has in store for you.
After galvanising the Tout Paris with its summer terrace with a lovely view of the Eiffel tower, the restaurant of the Musée d'Art moderne de Paris unveils its indoor dining room. For the winter season, the unconventional chef Julien Sebbag invites you to discover this brutalist style spot with a post-apocalyptic ambiance designed by Studio Uchronia. Centrepiece of the decor, a digital plant-based fresco is displayed on the concrete walls, thereby resonating with the vegetarian cuisine of the chef who compliments vegetables like no other.

You can't judge a book by its cover! Behind its Art Deco marble facade, where you can still see the inscription "Butter, Milk, Eggs", the former dairy store located between the Place Vendôme and the Opera is home to the craft roasting house of the Charles and Raphaël Corrotbrothers. Studio Uchronia once again signed and amazing and contrasted showcase, where memories from the past reverberate with a highly colourful retro-futuristic style. And we undoubtedly have not heard the last of it. The group led by Julien Sebban will be running a 200 sqm. café, specially designed for Maison&Objet.

Hôtel de la Marine
Heading towards Place de la Concorde. More than four years of renovation works were necessary for the Hôtel de la Marine to retrieve its radiance of the past. Built during the reign of Louis XV, this iconic monument located just next the Hôtel de Crillon, used to be the Crown's storage, technical and repair warehouse before becoming the headquarters of the Ministry of the Navy up until 2015. Now open to the public, this architectural jewel form the 18th century provides an immersive experience to discover the heritage and the lifestyle from that age.

Gilles & Boissier
It was a dream but Gilles & Boissier made it come true. For the two past years, Partick Gilles and Dorothée Boissier have been displaying their furniture in a gorgeous boutique apartment located on the Paris fashion artery. In March, the couple of architects will be staging their new creations in this entirely decorated venue, from the living room to the office and the bedroom. Named Les Choses Essentielles, the collection includes lighting, objects and accessories; some of the creations are the result of the agency's projects. A good way of finding inspiration.

Féau & Cie
If travelling on a time machine is your dream, this is a good opportunity to do so! As an exception to its normal schedule, the exclusive Féau & Cie. House, specialising in the design and reproduction of panelling since 1875, will be opening its doors to the public. Located next to Etoile, the workshops and their splendid Eiffel glass roof are home to antique panelling dated back from the 17th century to the 1940s. And that's not it. The Invisible Collection will also be part of the festivities. The online furniture store will present a limited edition collection crafted by design stars (Charles Zana, Laura Gonzales, Vincent Darré, etc.) with fabrics from the Dedar House.

During the Maison&Objet In The City event, the indoor furniture editor specialising in stone work, will open the doors of his new showroom in a place steeped in history. Just next to the Arc de Triomphe, Livingstone took over the former gallery of the Compagnie de la Chine et des Indes, which was the Paris mecca of Far Eastern art for decades. The Burel Architecture Design agency was responsible for planning out the space while keeping with the soul of this historic location. To kill two birds with one stone, you will be able to see the creations of famous designers displayed just next to treasures from the past, such as the 19th century elevator which was entirely restored.
