No relation to Degas, if that’s what you’re thinking: such a reference would be way too on-the-nose for a hipster-friendly hotel located in an old textile workshop in the quickly evolving Parisian neighborhood known as Little Egypt. Edgar is actually the name of the son of Guillaume Rouget-Luchaire, the creative visionary behind the project. After closing his restaurant on the Marais, he snapped up the dilapidated factory. But instead of hiring a design firm, he invited his friends — a mix of designers, filmmakers, and artists — to help transform the space. The result? A quirky but upscale boutique that feels like an indulgent large-scale art installation with a chic breakfast and complimentary bicycles for an impromptu spin around the second arrondissement.

To call these guest rooms “individually decorated” would be a wild understatement: each one could belong to a different hotel. There’s the sultry, almost all-black “Ebène Rock” by a Chanel designer, the childhood fantasy-like “Dream,” where the decor includes toy cars and action figures, the woodsy but minimalist “La Chambre Perchée,” put together by a treehouse designer, and more classically elegant rooms like Pierre Frey’s dapper “Black & White.” It’s all grounded by Rouget-Luchaire’s particular aesthetic: he likes color and pattern, from the tiled floors to the jade-colored walls, and mixes decorative Art Deco elements with the clean lines of modern Scandinavian design. And there’s substance to the style, too: in the end, it’s a hotel, not an art project, and guest rooms come stocked with complimentary tea and apples, plus free wi-fi. Bocce ball sets and gourmet Edgar picnic baskets, on request, help complete the picture-perfect Parisian getaway.

Rouget-Luchaire didn’t give all the rooms away to his friends: he reserved one, “The Elegant Sixties,” to design himself. It’s a phrase that also applies to the downstairs bar, where vintage aperitifs are making a comeback, not to mention the popular restaurant. Restaurant Edgar — specializing in dishes like Roumégous oysters with bread and Bordier butter and cod with blood oranges and grilled octopus, and outfitted with vintage furniture, copper lamps, and nostalgic black-and-white photos — is a destination in itself, especially if you manage to score patio seating overlooking the impossibly charming square. This hotel is implementing enhanced safety and cleaning measures as required by the Tablet Recovery Pledge. Our Customer Service team is happy to provide full details of each step being taken.
