THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
Lally and Berger Studio Design was founded by Margaux Lally and Luc Berger, who met 10 years ago at the Superior School of Interior Architecture in Lyon. All their designs are express passion, and due to the opposition in personalities of Lally and Berger, makes their designs creative, daring and sensitive to what is around their contradictions.
Lally & Berger have been designing unexpected spaces since 2013, whilst still respecting the numerous wishes of their customers. The design due takes their time to analyse the project, always amazing with their technical ambition and fearlessness creativity.

The diversity of their skills combined with their various influences, allows Lally and Berger to adapt to any type of project, thus creating an identity specific to each place entrusted to them, always ensuring a special touch. It is no wonder the design duo was invited to develop a protect at Hotel Le Meurice.
In 1907, Hotel Le Meurice inaugurated a roof garden, originally conceived as a summer restaurant. Nowadays, the top floor of the hotel is devoted to the Belle Etoile Suite, a project designed by Lally & Berge with a little help from us and the French landscape architect Pierre-Alexandre Risser.
Lally and Berger renovated the suite, having in mind its exceptional location – an excellent view over Paris – and tried to keep the classic essence of the hotel with a more contemporary approach, giving a feeling of entering a time capsule.
Painted completely with a cloud-like motif, there is an antechamber, the Boudoir, which is a wink to Claude Monet’s Water Lilies in the Orangerie Museum that can be seen from the terrace. Both the colours and textures are quite similar.
In the middle presides a sculptural chaise longue designed by Lally & Berger and upholstered by the Ateliers Jouffre. The oak door to the actual Suite bears a majestic handle at its centre on which you find a welcoming carved face.
The entry foyer was inspired by the halls of town mansions, the space features a handrail sculpted with bronze branches and a stately chandelier in the form of leaves: a nod to the neighbouring Tuileries Gardens and the image of the hanging garden evoked by the Suite’s terrace. The gilded bronze of the handrail gives it a precious appearance.
Our MAYA Armchairs are present in an amazing resting area, with the stunning view above the city of Paris. “For me, one of the most successful things about the project is the way you have created an architectural rhythm in the living room”, says the designer Luc Berger.
An area devoted to reading and contemplation also makes part of this amazing project. The study is completed with art books chosen at the nearby Galignani bookstore converse with shelves composed of strips of brushed brass, arranged in an irregular pattern.
BRABBU makes a statement with customised MAYA armchairs. Maya civilization had maize as one of the primary elements of their culture. Personified as a woman, Maya’s Maize God was the inspiration behind this product.
On either side of it are two vintage mirrors. They hang on aged-oak panels, decorated with gold-leaf details, which underline the 18th-century-style of the architecture. Each of the different areas in the living area is separated by columns, into which the designers have integrated soft plaster wall lights.
The dining room continues in the same neutral palette, bringing a sense of calm and harmony to the table.
While entering the bedroom, the views are completely open to Paris. Two custom “totems” or partitions separate the bedroom into several areas: the dressing room towards the bathroom offers a stunning panorama over Montmartre; the bedroom in the centre has views on either side; the desk near the entrance welcomes guests. A shell in staff descends from the ceiling, creating a contemporary floating element by day and an outsized light fixture by night.
The marble-clad bathroom was little altered, largely retaining its luxurious, elegant décor from before. The bathtub was simply enlarged and equipped with the functions of a jacuzzi. New vanities were made from hammered brass, which helps to warm up the atmosphere, as do the bronze taps.
An oak dressing table placed opposite the view of the Montmartre breaks with the radical, symmetrical lines of the room and adds a more intimate touch. In a similar fashion, the surrounding garden has been conceived to offer a greater sense of privacy.
