Since the opening of its workshop in 2016, LEON FLAM aims to perpetuate the high standards of French expertise. Committed to the preservation of the cultural and historical French heritage, LEON FLAM decided to support the renovation of the Elysée Palace through this collaboration. The profits will be used to finance the work that began in the summer of 2018.
A bit of history
Built between 1718 and 1720 by the architect Armand-Claude Mollet, and decorated by 1722, the Elysée Palace is located at 55 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, in the heart of the 8th arrondissement of Paris. Originally built for Count Louis-Henri de la Tour d'Auvergne, the Hôtel d'Evreux was offered to the Marquise de Pompadour by Louis XV in 1753. After major work done by Joachim Murat, the hotel acquired its status of palace. His brother-in-law, Napoleon I, made it his imperial residence in 1805. Napoleon III also lived there from 1848. In 1879, the Palace finally became the official residence of the President of the French Republic. The Elysée Palace has been a window of the arts and French savoir-faire for 300 years.
