— How would you describe Château Marteret in a few words?
— Château Marteret
— What can you tell us about the interior design of the castle?
Eriko Horiki, a Japanese artist who works with Washi paper, designed the incredible light structure right in the entrance hall as well as two others in the chateau. We have replications of Gaudi armchairs and Claudy Jongstra, a Dutch artist, created the hand-felted curtains, partially from wool and silk. Each of these curtains is unique and was color coordinated just for this château.
Our furniture is made from solid oak, which was oiled not treated in order to keep in line with our biological concept that we base everything on. Clay plastering was used for the bathrooms, crystals were artistically inset into the plaster and the floors were laid with Moroccan tiles.”
