“ECLECTIC” … CURRENTLY THE HOTTEST RESTAURANT IN PARIS WITH THE BEST DESIGN EXPERIENCE.

“ECLECTIC” … CURRENTLY THE HOTTEST RESTAURANT IN PARIS WITH THE BEST DESIGN EXPERIENCE.

 

Acclaimed British designer Tom Dixon brings his industrial style to Paris’s hottest new restaurant, Eclectic. The amazing interior is all about brass and natural materials. The restaurant is named after the designer’s homeware collection whose defining honeycomb pattern competes with the Seine river views for your attention. Packed with the Dixon’s many signature lamps and furniture pieces, this place is as much showroom as eatery. Definitely a pervasive design experience whereas the typical and yet tasty brasserie food plays a secondary role.
