Restored Paris charcuterie Anahi Restaurant

This is the interior of Anahi, an Argentinian restaurant in the Marais district of Paris. Once a charcuterie built at the turn of the 20th-century, the spaces retain their original broken tiling which have been cleverly filled with sheets of copper leaf to match the gilded chairs and candlesticks. The interior is a perfect example of how the art of restoration can lend to beautiful design.
