The metamorphosis of one iconic Argentinean restaurant situated in the heart of Paris has proven to be more than a standard remodeling project. Anahi remained unchanged for over 20 years before the original owners -- sisters Carmina and Pilar -- sold the space to French entrepreneur Cédric Naudon. Naudon’s longterm vision involved buying 35 of the surrounding businesses in an effort to create an architectural haven, complete with sophisticated restaurant and shopping options, all within a stones throw of each other. The renovation of Anahi marks the beginning of  a long journey; a journey which Naudon is determined to get right. To help with the facelift of the former charcuterie turned Argentinean restaurant, Naudon called upon Barcelona-based designer Maud Bury. As the protege of famed French designer Philippe Starck, Bury’s design instincts often parallel the aesthetic of the man with whom she worked for over nine years.

Even still, Bury’s changes were minimal and made primarily to bring additional warmth to the space. Anahi already possessed ample charms from a design perspective; there was a distinctive Art Deco influenced ceiling, subdued wall frescos and white ceramic tiles given character by time-inflicted cracks and chips. Bury simply filled the cracked tiles with copper leaf grout, which will oxidize over time and add richness to the formerly pallid walls. The grout also complements Bury’s heavy use of gold, bronze and brass tones throughout the restaurant. Evidence of her affair with metallics is all over the restaurant's effusively burnished décor, from the chair backs and legs, candelabras and ceiling tiles to even a gold imitation Spanish ham leg.
