It is my pleasure to give you The Salon Doré from the Hôtel de La Trémoille.



The Salon Doré was designed during the reign of Louis XVI. It was the main salon de compagnie of the Hôtel de La Trémoille on the rue Saint-Dominique in Paris. It still is one of the finest examples of French Neoclassical interior architecture anywhere. And it is located in San Francisco. Very Happy

The Salon Doré has been moved six times and endured various alterations before it finally arrived in California where it was donated to the Legion of Honor in 1959.  

That's why the Salon Doré, needing deep restoration, has been closed for a long 17 month period. It is now reopened and the result is just wonderful. Very Happy

If These Walls Could Talk



As I know you guys love restoration stuff, I show you many pics about the process. Very Happy

First of all, let's see how the room looked in Paris :



The idea was to recreate the ambiance of Ancien Regime, an aim that requiered rigorous historical research and perfected conservation techniques of our century. It was necessary to restore the mirrors, the boiserie, the pilasters, the torchères, the plinths, the chairs once made by Jacob... everything with the balance and proportions of the time.

Enough talking, let's jump into the pictures !

And now... The Book !

The Salon Doré from the Hôtel de La Trémoille

The Salon Doré from the Hôtel de La Trémoille is one of the most cherished spaces in the Legion of Honor. This book explores the Salon’s origins in late-18th-century Paris, chronicles its history in France and the United States from the end of the 1700s to the early 2000s, and celebrates its reinstallation in San Francisco today. Based on new research, the present restoration accurately reflects a salon de compagnie from the 1780s, complete with two suites of chairs, lighting from historic fixtures, and silk upholstery derived from period documents—offering a rare glimpse of the halcyon days of its creation. Including a detailed account of salon life in the ancien régime, the original 1790 inventory, and an examination of the extensive conservation project undertaken to restore it to its former glory, The Salon Doré from the Hôtel de La Trémoille pays tribute to this superlative period room.
