The Gallery-Museum of Baccarat, a crystal extravaganza

The Gallery-Museum of Baccarat, a crystal extravaganza

In Paris, the Baccarat Gallery-Museum unveils the magic of crystal with a selection of 350 pieces from its collection of stunning luxury.

The Gallery-Museum of Baccarat, a crystal extravaganza

Steeped with history since the end of the 19th century, and redecorated by Philippe Starck in 2003, the former private mansion of socialite Marie-Laure de Noailles, mentor of painters, writers and musicians, shelters a gallery-museum dedicated to upscale receptions according to Baccarat. The freestone facade opens on an alley of mirrors with crystal arms, offering the stunning vision of a chandelier floating in an aquarium.

Adding to the magic of the venue, in an Art Deco spirit, a red carpet trimmed with optic figers leads to an XXL size chair, than an honor staircase, with 157 sparking tassels overhanging from a chandelier in cascades, and finally the sanctuary. A handsome ballroom whose wall-panelings, mouldings, fine gold gilding, monumental fireplaces and Versailles parquet floors are a stunning suprise for the visitor.

The excellence of a majestic French lifestyle 

In the elegant reception rooms, window-displays enhance the house creations, of yesterday and today. A bright luminous 13-meter crystal table presents precious table settings, decorations, luminaries that appeal to the gaze with their fairytale opulence. And to complete your discovery while enjoying a gourmet moment, the Cristal Room, a colouful restaurant, redesigned by decorator Jacques Grange, features a refined menu with drinks served in… in multi-faceted crystal glasses.
