The Marble Courtyard boutique at the Palace of Versailles
A new facility to honour creativity and expertise

The Palace of Versailles and the Réunion des musées nationaux – Grand Palais are pleased to offer visitors to the Palace a refurbished retail outlet at the heart of the tour.

The three members of A Paris chez Antoinette Poisson worked with the interior design studio Supercraft to design the layout of the Marble Courtyard boutique, under the supervision of
Frédéric Didier, chief architect of Historic Monuments in charge of the Palace of Versailles.

This sales area of 182 sq.m, revitalised and modernised, comprises four rooms in sequence. In this shop, a veritable exploration of the French way of life, more than twenty brands present their expertise and many designers reveal their talents. Creative partnerships, exclusive collaborations and offbeat, contemporary range take you on a journey back in time.

From room to room, the shop multiplies the architectural references to the royal apartments of Marie-Antoinette and Louis XVI, infusing modernity and refinement. Antoinette Poisson’s domino wallpapers and the elegant furniture designed by Supercraft resonate with the original black and white chequered floor to offer a new look at an intimate and unknown Versailles.
