18th century architectural ensemble
Within the framework of the restoration - reconversion of the Hôtel de la Marine, an 18th century architectural complex located on the Place de la Concorde in Paris, the Phelippeau Tapestry Company was entrusted with the restitution of the intendant's apartments, the chief of staff's office and the 19th century salons.
This work consisted in revising, assembling and installing wall hangings, installing tapestries, making and installing damask curtains as well as silk and cotton blinds, installing and adjusting trimmings, cords and tassels on the chandeliers. For the draperies, the craftsmen of Maison Phelippeau used an old-fashioned technique with hand sewing of the strips, laying with tapestry sowing and finishing with passementerie or braid.
Maison Phelippeau carried out the restoration under the direction of Delphine Christophe, Director of the Conservation of Monuments and Collections at the Centre des Monuments Nationaux, and the project management under the direction of 2BDM architect, Christophe Bottineau, chief architect of historic monuments, and the decorators Joseph Achkar and Michel Charrière.
