Dorsia Hotel in Gothenburg, Sweden, embodies the tenets of Belle Epoque or “The Beautiful Age” it is inspired by. The 19th-century French era, characterised by an extravagant and opulent lifestyle, served as the vision of local restauranteur and current manager Thomas Petersen. So, each of the 37 unique, bauble-hued suites that are segregated by a ruby-red passageway promises lavish interiors complete with mulberry silk duvets, combed Egyptian cotton linen, Hermes toiletries and plush fabric from Designer’s Guild.
