Thanks to Edward VII, who had the habit of bathing in the company of his friends, hotel bathtubs became more comfortable. In view of complaints of discomfort of the bathtubs from the voluminous prince, Caesar Ritz decided to make them wider and more comfortable.
The brilliant Ritz had solutions for everything. And just like how he commissioned the large bathtubs, he ordered the manufacturing of small furniture, when he dealt with more intimate spaces. Like this he decorated the Rue Cambon bar in his luxurious Place Vendome hotel in Paris. As the space was very limited, he ordered that the decorators reduce the size of the chairs and tables, achieving a psychic effect of spaciousness.
