INSPIRATIONS

“The random ascent, through intoxication, up a yawning staircase in the night.”

Edmond de Goncourt, La Fille Elisa

Like the pleasure houses of the Belle Époque that circled the world with their exotic decoration, the rooms and suites of Maison Souquet draw inspiration from Chinese, Japanese, Indian, 18th century, Empire, Napoleon III, and Art Deco styles. Allow yourself to be carried away by your dreams and choose the decoration that inspires you…

An invitation to exoticism

In the 19th century, everything from the Orient was a source of fascination. To satisfy tastes and fantasies, the most famous Parisian pleasure houses competed to offer their clients an assortment of exotic décors, reflected infinitely in the mirrors – essential ornaments in these erotically charged spaces. In a subtle homage to this exoticism meant to exhilarate the senses and imagination, the rooms and suites at Maison Souquet each offer a different inspiration. Adorned with rare fabrics sourced from renowned French designers, embellished with paintings of female nudes and intricate mirrors, these vibrant chambers recapture the festive and amorous atmosphere of the Belle Époque.
