Today we will present you Ladurée, a French bakery with a fantastic decoration. Some call it Ladurée, others call it “macaron heaven”.
Located on the shore of Lake Geneva in a wing of the uber-fancy Four Seasons Hotel, the designer has created a confectionary delight of epic proportions, specializing in French macarons in a mélange of coveted colours and flavours.
Luxe French bakery, Ladurée, has been expertly churning out their famous double-decker macarons with much fanfare since 1862. Paris-based designer, Mahdavi, payed homage to the patisserie’s rich heritage, while modernizing the space.
Whipping up a sweet combination of sumptuous materials, rich hues, and elegant finishes, Mahdavi brought the upscale bakery into the here-and-now, 145 years after the first Ladurée opened in Paris.
In typical French fashion, the space evokes an elegantly chic, yet playfully unexpected vibe, blending a mix of pastels in an Alice in Wonderland style dreamscape.
A true sensory journey, curvilinear lines, fluted counters, and festooned chairs juxtapose linear, marble flooring treated in an angular, black and white diamond pattern.
