Pedrali, a royal touch in Versailles
design ph. Pierre Monetta
2017
recommended by Pedrali
Ducasse au château de Versailles is the perfect expression of French contemporary cuisine, delicious, legible and inspired by history. For his newest contemporary café, located on the first floor at pavillon Dufour, Alain Ducasse chose the Ester armchairs designed by Patrick Jouin for Pedrali.

Pedrali keeps cultivating the relationship with French style in the most prestigious locations such as “Le Jules Verne” restaurant on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower or in London at “Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester” restaurant, in Mayfair where the Ester armchairs also are.

“Ore” means “mouth” in Latin. The name is a reference to the pleasures of the mouth, so important to French art de vivre. It particularly resonates at Château de Versailles where it evokes the services of the Bouche du Roi, whose duty was preparing the meals served at court. The renovations of pavillon Dufour, curated by architects Dominique Perrault and Frédéric Didier, aim to maintain a subtle balance of memories of the past, architectural creativity and functionality.

An outstanding setting, which allows a view like no other of the ancient and magnificent royal residence near Paris. In such a fascinating and seducing context Ester armchairs, contribute to make even cosier the restaurant internal spaces, thanks to a perfect mix of elegance, ergonomics and functionality. The care for details featuring this monolith of leather, selected this time in 4 warm color shades and complemented by refined die-casted aluminium leg, reflects that one of the restaurant itself, where guests can discover the delicious proportions of the 17th century
salons, adorned with fireplaces, mirrors and lamps.
