The World of Baccarat and Phillipe Starck - Paris



La Cristal Room Baccarat in Paris is an ultra fabulous
restaurant on the restaurant scene. In 2003, Baccarat
opened its first flagship boutique store, crystal museum
and restaurant all under one roof of a huge building. This
building has already become a landmark in Paris and well
known on the social circuit in Paris.



The Baccarat House as it is dubbed, is designed by none
other than Phillipe Starck. The facade of the building
is certainly impressive, but not as impressive with the
millions dollars of crystal the inside is decked out in.



Inside you are greeted with one of the world's largest
crystal chandelier's. It is indeed a sight to behold.


You don't really realize the scale of this chair until
you take a photo of it next to the stair case.


Some of the treasures in Baccarat's crystal museum.



More fabulous show rooms from Maison Baccarat.


Can you believe how reflective all of the surfaces are?


Here's a closer look at that awesome table.


A very impressive ballroom filled with awe inspiring
Baccarat chandeliers in the very decadent French style
of the past.






I would love to dine at their pink restaurant.
The decor is simply fantastic.


More photos of the restaurant.



And of course, more chandeliers!


A look at their boutique from the outside.


Bet you didn't think it would be lit up in
Fuscia and Red at night. I didn't...

Stay tuned for Baccarat in Moscow on Wednesday.

That pink restaurant had me drooling, in fact the whole place has me drooling. I can never get enough chandeliers. I will definately put the Baccarat crystal museum down as a MUST place to visit on my next trip to Paris - whenever that maybe hehe.
