The timeless decor of the C.O.Q Hotel

The timeless decor of the C.O.Q Hotel

Originally designed by Michel Delloye as an alternative to standardization, the C.O.Q Hôtel (Community of Quality) is an atypical place. A timeless hotel where life is good in a warm and friendly setting. This worked but not fixed decoration is the fruit of Pauline d'Hoop and Delphine Sauvaget of the Favorite agency (trained in Decorative Arts in Paris). Here, each object tells a story, creates an atmosphere and is part of the house. Because it's a bit of a house! The decor is lively and seeks to make you feel comfortable rather than impress. The 50 rooms are all different and are intended to embody a French art of living. The designer furniture (Zanotta table, Memphis lamp, etc.) rubs shoulders with classic French paintings in rooms dressed in deep, muted shades from the 60s.

A Zanotta table d'hôte

François Cavelier - Hôtel C.O.Q Next to the lounge area, we discover a dining area in which sits a Zanotta table, found at Sotheby's we are told. The space opens onto the winter garden with a workshop-style window that stands out like a painting on the blue Farrow & Ball wall. This is where guests enjoy a board of cheeses and cold meats, listening to a piece of jazz after a long day.

The cozy winter garden

François Cavelier - Hôtel C.O.Q The ultimate relaxation area, cozy at will, the winter garden welcomes weary travelers. We love the plant and seventies atmosphere that reigns there and that changes atmosphere, whether it is day under this canopy bathed in light, or night, with the play of magnificent sconces with industrial design.

The classic: smaller but also beautiful

François Cavelier - Hôtel C.O.Q The 18 classic rooms of the hotel offer shades of blue and gray enhanced by pink and mustard yellow. If they are the smallest (14m²), nothing has been forgotten since they have a desk and custom-made or antique furniture. As elsewhere, the details are still worked on since the sheets are woven in France. The bathrooms are fitted with a rain shower.

The Superior: modern photo and classic painting

François Cavelier - Hotel C.O.Q 17m² of happiness for the eyes: gray in all its nuances is subtly married to the famous blue Farrow & Ball. We love the brass, brought by touches thanks to the very designed lights and for some signed Charlotte Perriand. The icing on the wall: the contemporary black and white photo is displayed alongside classic paintings and brings a real personality to the place. The bathroom, spacious and bright, is fitted with a walk-in shower in black and white tones and geometric shapes.

Graphic focus in the bathroom

François Cavelier - Hotel C.O.Q New York spirit for the shower rooms, Italian of course! The mirrors were created especially for the hotel and blend perfectly with the very urban black & white decor that emerges in the bathroom. A concentrate of well brought graphics.

Luxury version C.O.Q

François Cavelier - Hotel C.O.Q Must Have of the hotel, the twelve "Deluxe" rooms are transformed into elegant cocoons in which one feels soothed. With a surface area of ​​20 m², these peaceful havens overlooking the courtyard are pure luxury - without ostentation, of course. Between the queen size bedding (made in France by a golden nest), the rooster foot carpet, the furniture specially designed for the hotel and the punctuation of anachronistic mottled pieces, the bedroom becomes a real agitator of emotion.

Deluxe bathroom

François Cavelier - Hôtel C.O.Q Black and white and chevron, graphic, are in the spotlight in the bathrooms (for Deluxe) and shower rooms. We really like the classic modernized bathtub, redesigned by a deep black. The space is elegant with its accuracy and its perfection of details, such as the brass fittings. We would stay there for a while…

Furniture that plays on detail

François Cavelier - Hôtel C.O.Q The furniture, in the shared spaces as in the bedrooms, never ceases to amaze us both by its beauty and its simplicity. Period objects mingle with pieces designed for the occasion, like this dressing table-wardrobe, with perfect dimensions, inspired by design from the 1950s!

The view: chic and Parisian

François Cavelier - Hôtel C.O.Q A stone's throw from the Gobelins, the hotel overlooks the School of Arts and Crafts, an interior courtyard and rue Edouard Manet.
