Review: Signed Sybille de Margerie: Bespoke Interiors

Celebrating a way of living that blends tradition and innovation with a distinctly French eye for luxury.

Signed Sybille de Margerie: Bespoke Interiors
by Laure Verchère, foreword by Hélène Arnault

The Cheval Blanc Hotel in Courchevel, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Paris, the Old and New Cataract in Aswan, the Hotel D in Strasbourg, The Grand in Amsterdam … all reveal the milieu of French interior designer Sybille de Margerie. Her forte: dreamy palaces, hôtels particuliers and some of the best addresses in the whole world.

Having trained at the École Boulle and worked with the Taittinger group, she sums up her signature style: “I like the balance between tradition and modernity; I attach great importance to the fluidity of spaces, light and comfort. My work is equally highlighted by attention to detail, choice of materials and the harmony of colours.”

De Margerie now has three offices globally – in Paris, in Florence, and in Dubai where Kerzner commissioned her to design the residential area of the Royal Atlantis. She is currently working on serviced residences with Four Seasons Dubai. “I’m not looking to leave my imprint on everything I do, I’m more interested in revealing the soul and uniqueness of a place,” she has said of her functional yet detail-oriented designs.

This new book explores eight themes that are representative of her work and her distinctive architectural style.
