Par Excellence as Showroom

The opening of the new space of Par Excellence in the heart of Manhattan highlights the work and expertise of the best French craftsmen. Renowned interior designer Thomas Pheasant was in charge of transforming the showroom as an ode to the longstanding collaboration between France and the United States, which dates back to the Art Deco period. The space engages the various artisans in a single design direction that demonstrates how all of these talents can come together to support a designer’s vision.
