The Tree Room at the Closerie


The weather is still very summery here in Paris and a business lunch at the Closerie des Lilas is a leafy affair. The little pots of cyclamen laid on the tables and perched on midair shelves are not particularly convincing (though they would be lovely as cut flowers in transparent vases) but the visual presence of the  tree in the middle of the dining room is quite impressive. Apparently this setup gives the tree enough water and sun to allow it to thrive in such civilized surroundings. The Closerie should take inspiration from the amazing presence of this tree and develop the colours, textures and forms of the room design to enhance this unique dining experience, according to the seasons…

and call it the Tree Room at the Closerie…
