“La Maison Tiegezh integrates a gourmet restaurant, a bistro-crêperie and now a beautiful hotel with six contemporary and cozy rooms that allow one to extend the experience in Brittany. A beneficial stopover in the mystic land of Brocéliande, home of the legend of King Arthur” or even “An elegant and refined interior“, these are the headlines one can read in the Michelin Guide as the presentation of Maison Tiegezh.
Entirely designed by the young starred chef Baptiste Denieul and his wife Marion, the establishment, owned by the Denieul family for several generations, promises to be a privileged stopover for discovering the attractions of Brittany. Whether you are heading towards Rennes or taking the roads that lead to the Gulf of Morbihan. For interior design, the couple were accompanied by the designer Marlyse Le Hir, who first started in the field of fashion before turning to interior design and urban furniture.
From the start of the project, it was important for Baptiste and Marion Denieul to retain the charm of the building while bringing in some modernity. The home has kept its authenticity as a “family home” while remaining contemporary thanks to the expertise of Marlyse Le Hir.
The designer was keen to design welcoming, eco-friendly spaces that take particular care of the well-being of travelers passing through near the Brocéliande Forest, a place of legends that had to be respected. The idea was to create an elegant, comfortable establishment with a cozy atmosphere where you can feel at home. Marlyse Le Hir curated soft and warm materials that evoke the world of textiles. She turned to powdery and feminine tones in order to soften the character of the raw materials of the building.
Flooring products in tune
For the flooring, carpet was an obvious choice due to its underfoot comfort and acoustic qualities. The pleasant touch of the textile flooring and the patterns mimicing mosses and lichens contribute greatly to guests well-being. The designer’s primary attention was first focused on pronounced patterns, inspired by handmade textiles; our World Woven collection – a tribute to artisanal tailoring, quickly caught her attention. The products chosen were highly patterned, such as World Woven WW890, reminiscent of the houndstooth fabrics of Chanel. Combinations that work particularly well with vintage-inspired furniture (velvet, bronze, patinated leather, brass, non-woven wallpaper, etc.). Patterns, colours and materials have been combined in a daring way to showcase the uniqueness of each of the rooms.
The hotel restaurant
The catering areas and in particular the brasserie have been created with the same cozy theme to welcome and comfort guests. It was essential to make it a warm place with neat acoustics – hence the choice of a carpeted floor rather than a hard surface.
This brasserie space was also made with carpet “waste” from the hotel installation phase, which made it possible to maintain continuity between the spaces but also to minimize the environmental impact. The reuse of waste that echoes the practice of the chef and bistronomy: no waste, just like in the kitchen, everything must be used and leftovers are a material of choice for creativity. The final decor is a chic and elegant patchwork with woven design that resonates with the hotel spaces and rooms. In addition, all products used for this project are carbon neutral thanks to Interface’s Carbon Neutral Floors™ programme. The World Woven collection also uses 100% recycled nylon yarn.
This project was a great adventure for us in the continuity of other projects that we had carried out with the designer, Marlyse Le Hir, such as the hotel and restaurant Le Saison in Saint Grégoire, or the headquarters of Mix Buffet. We are happy to have been selected for the floors of the beautiful contemporary and charming Maison Tiegezh. A special thank you to Marlyse Le Hir, as well as Marion and Baptiste Denieul for their trust.
