There are bars, and there are bars. This astonishing one is to be found inside the opulent five-star hotel, Hotel La Villa Eugène, in Champagne, France.
The beautiful 19th-century luxury residence’s unique decor and architecture follow the style of French Empire. The hotel once belonged to the famous Champagne house Mercier, which is now owned by Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy (LVMH Group).
Prior to moving to Australia, Legacy of the Antipodes master craftsman Laurent lent his formidable talents to this bar renovation. His crucial contribution to the project included constructing a traditional French Empire-era style fireplace mantel, bar, and rear display cabinetry.
All made in solid Mahogany timber and bronze, the champagne and wine bar renovation pays homage to this era’s superbly crafted and fine furniture.
