The hotel has enlisted auction house Artcurial to sell 10,000 pieces of furniture and “objets d‘art” that no longer suit its decor. The pieces will go on exhibition from April 12-16 in Paris before the sale from April 17-21.
Highlights from the auction include a gilded bed on which Audrey Hepburn lounged in Love in the Afternoon, salon sofas from French writer Marcel Proust’s retreats at the hotel, and bar stools from Ernest Hemingway’s reign in the hotel bar now named after him.
Other famous guests include Coco Chanel and Diana, Princess of Wales. The auction will also include chandeliers, vintage bed linens, art, among others.
