Your Experience

Opened on January 15, 1894, the modest shop of novelties was quickly a great success. On the facade of the building, several styles follow one another, demonstrating the successive enlargements of the store: Haussmann, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and the drugstore spirit of the 1960s. At the center of this unique heritage property is the neo-byzantine dome, the heart of this theater of fashion.

This guided tour will take you through the aisles of the store, across the emblematic spaces of the place and take the staff private elevators to the panoramic terrace. You will understand how the founders of the department store invented an architecture adapted to the needs of commerce. Borrowed from the architectural vocabulary of the sacred as well as that of the spectacle, the dome, the balconies and the monumental staircase turn the heads of visitors. Your guide will tell you the history of the majestic dome built in record time and the hidden message behind the 10 coats of arms which surmount the pillars of the great hall.
