Crafted by Parisian designer Laura Gonzalez, Peruvian restaurant Manko-Paris combines mysterious local taste with French chic

Set in the old Drouot auction house - where the film Fauteuil d'orchestre was shot - at 15 Avenue Montaigne, Manko-Paris is decorated with chic colour combinations in a French way, becoming another symbol of Laura Gonzalez’s elegant approach to design.

Finding refinement in the rough, Manko-Paris is gilded in warm colours, allowing the nobility of the materials to shine through. These include: floor tiles, patterned sconces, tables and chairs made from precious hardwoods, brass metalwork, gold patinas and silver leafed objects. All have been renovated with respect to Peruvian culture and traditions.

The idea was to transcribe refinement with the organic through rugs, mosaics, marble and the mixture of raw and precious materials and colours such as Inca blue and deep green.

Gonzalez affirms that she was "inspired and influenced by Peru, the Andes and South America," but also wanted to "respect the beautiful building and area of Avenue Montaigne in Paris."
