Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: 25 years ago my wife and I renovated 3 townhouses in New Orleans’ French Quarter, creating the Soniat House Hotel. We traveled frequently to France to collect its antique furnishings. Fodor’s named it one of the 20 best hotels in the world and it’s included in ‘1000 Places to See Before You Die’. Because of the remarkable response to the furnishings, we opened our antiques Galleries twelve years ago and have now become a source for many of America’s best Interior Designers.
Why the Owner Chose Sorbonne, Paris, France:
One thing leads to another; the success of the antiques business keeps us returning frequently each year and led to the creation of our apartment on the left bank. Located in our favorite part of Paris, it is comfortable and filled with light, and it is furnished with things we love.
