Jacques Garcia’s Most Lavish Hotel Designs
There are only a few designers whose names are known all over the world—Jacques Garcia is one of them. Growing up in France in the 1950s, Garcia showed an interest in and talent for interior design and architecture. After working in Paris for decades, Garcia earned international recognition with his renovation of the Hotel Costes, which sparked a desire for his voluptuous designs that started a style revolution in hotels, restaurants, and private homes.
The grandeur of Garcia’s style honors and continues the Belle Époque style, but also explores Bohemian opulence and Oriental elegance. His ability to design such traditionally elaborate interiors, that can also accommodate the modern needs that a hotel or private residence requires is a key to his success. Other notable projects include Hotel Vagabond Singapore, the Peninsula Paris, and the Hotel Odéon Saint-Germain in Paris. Everything is romantic, everything is gilded, everything is lavish, and it is all utterly Garcia.
