‘BELMONT has been completely designed and decorated by its owner, Alfred Bernardin, and his team, with the help of Emilie Pineau-Valencienne of the EPV Design agency.
From Paris to Marrakech to New York, Alfred has painstakingly sourced an array of vintage pieces and has designed the rest of the furniture, resulting in a bespoke atmosphere and a unique decor which is quite unlike any other.
Alfred mixes styles and materials to achieve a completely unexpected and highly original result. Chairs from the 1950s, 60s and 70s sit side-by-side contemporary designer-style pieces, everything carefully and precisely set out over the restaurant’s 250 m² to leave an impression of orderly disarray. BELMONT appropriates the chic industrial spirit, offering traditional interior design, with a modern twist. Zinc blends harmoniously with the warmth of the dark, aged beech flooring. The noble material of a leather table marries perfectly with the cosy spirit of a Chesterfield sofa. The decor plays on geometry, blending round, square and oval shapes, beneath an Eiffel-style structure, with a 6-metre high ceiling.
Decidedly singular, this new Parisian restaurant stands out for its unique style. It dares to break all the rules by mixing vintage with contemporary. Over the top? No, resolutely funky!’
