Modernism and Classicism: from 1728 to the future Built on 1728 by Mazin – the architect of the arsenals under Louis XV – the hotel located at number 8 rue d’Anjou reflects the creative classicism of its founder. The construction miraculously survived Baron Haussmann’s 19th century urbanization and became a condominium much later in 1931. It has been remodelled throughout the centuries following the various architectural styles of the times from Louis the XVth to Charles the Xth. The 1728 restaurant is situated in what were the reception rooms of Mazin’s townhouse. The interior’s renovation, carried out in June 2001 aims to reflect and respect the spirit and original style of the place according the original drawings of Contet. The period arms’ room, is in the Venetian style, very popular in the 18th century. The music room is decorated in the style of Louis the XVIth with its original flare. The boiseries of the La Fayette drawing room are now in Washington DC, but the oak parquet à la française is original, as are Mazin’s friezes depicting an allegory of the virtues of fraternity. The Pompadour room has been entirely restored in the Chinese style, much favoured by the Marquise herself. She held court here rue d’Anjou while her «Hôtel d’Evreux» - which, today, serves as the home of the French president (Palais de l’Elysée) - was under construction.The current library occupies the place of the former ladies’ salon, a small room which sadly has lost all trace of its original decoration. The Amateurs cabinet speaks to the heart of learned collectors of beautiful suggestive prints. The small living room upstairs painted in three shades of Gold is a free interpretation of one the favourite themes of this great aesthete and friend of the arts, who gave the Faubourg Saint-Honoré its tonality, still contemporary, where modernism and classicism melt with cultures and talents. Of course, the most influential host remained the General Marquis de Lafayette. Few men lived through history with as much significance, at the rate of the fractals, passions and destinies that affect his time. The spirit and love of Liberty and the liberal breath, but the lightness of the soul as well, radiate in this unique place imagined and restored for your pleasure by Yang Lining, a musician who wan the Grand Prix at the Peking Conservatoire, a master of the classical cithara, the most noble instrument of the ancient and modern China, and her husband Jean-François Chuet, aesthete, collector and mentor of the place. 1728 is a beautiful love story, which recharge from day-to-day its emotional resources in the soul of this place.

But also the website of our endowment for the Hotel Mazin La Fayette 1728: www.hotelmazinlafayette.com Dedicated to the history of the place and to our collections. 11
