THE MAISON BACCARAT IN PARIS

































One of our last stops while we were in Paris was the Maison Baccarat located near the Eiffel Tower. We had the pleasure of receiving a special private tour and were given much insight and history into this most special place. The Mansion was formerly the private residence of Marie-Laure de Noailles (who we were told was infamous for her magical parties) and was remade into Baccarat's headquarters by Philippe Starck.  Starck was given carte blanche and developed a extravagant design scheme full of wonderment and surprise for this leading international luxury brand.

The 3000 square meters of the Mansion accommodates the Baccarat headquarters, a boutique, a museum, a restaurant and the original ballroom. We loved seeing the world of Baccarat all in one place – it was truly breathtaking. Merci Karine.
