François Champsaur is a French interior designer. One of his specialities is to simultaneously develop two parallel activities: interior design and structural design.

From his earliest projects at the Maison Troisgros in Roanne and Café de l’Alma in Paris, François has displayed his ability to transform any space, considering each and every aspect from an architectural angle and with the finest detail. He intelligently reworks space, playing with light and volume, and compliments this with both elegant and contemporary furniture and fabrics.

His work on Hôtel du Ministère, Paris,  was a true example of his talent.  Retro touches from the 1950s are mixed with modern design – creating a contemporary and stylish hotel experience. Marble finishes are juxtaposed with wood, and natural tones are combined with vibrant splashes of colour. Warm-toned carpets with geometric prints create an inviting feel to the rooms and suites throughout the hotel.

Combinating classic and contemporary elements. François claims that Hôtel du Ministère is “a colourful hotel, deliberately electrifying and comfortable”.

The 24 rooms within the hotel are modern and cosy spaces. Opening onto luxurious bathrooms decorated in a cabana style in light wood tones, each room offers a different design layout. All are equipped with high-quality bed linen, mattresses and duvets. L'hôtel-du-Ministère-François-Champsaur4  BEST INTERIOR DESIGNER: François Champsaur Lh  tel du Minist  re Fran  ois Champsaur4
