Further to the successful refurbishment programme of a trio of Movenpick hotels in the Netherlands in 2013, Chelsom were commissioned to supply the lighting for the extensive refurbishment of the superior four-star Movenpick Hotel Paris Neuilly ideally located in the heart of the city with views of the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe.
During the renovation of the 281 guestrooms and suites, Chelsom worked in collaboration with the teams at ARA Design and Chandler KBS, who project managed the complex roll out plan, to ensure that the exacting design requirements were met and that the stringent French regulations were adhered to.
Working closely with ARA Design, Chelsom devised a lighting solution which delivered the utmost in terms of style and functionality and was in keeping with the wider interior scheme which effortlessly balanced contemporary design with the elegant atmosphere of Parisian chic. The scheme incorporated a mixture of existing fittings, standard product from Chelsom’s collection and custom- designed pieces at the specification of the team at ARA Design with clean, contemporary lines and neutral tones at the forefront.
Custom-designed pendants featuring striking French Drum shades in off-white silk with black trim where commissioned for the bedside lighting, suspended from the ceiling and supported from the wall giving the illusion they hover above the bedside tables. LED reading lights in Polished Chrome with bullet heads were also specified along with inverted wall lights, providing the perfect balance of functionality and design for the bedside lighting requirements. Stylish cone shaped shade fittings were chosen for the wall lighting while standard Chelsom floor and table lamps from the ‘Swing’ range were customised to give a much more elegant look in keeping with the interior scheme and were teamed with colour matching shades in off white to compliment the colour palette of the guestrooms whilst offering ambient lighting to enhance the guest experience.
