The Musée Les Arts Décoratifs is one of our favorite museum and its all about interior design, furniture, objets d’arts, wallpaper, tapestries, ceramics, glassware, and toys from the Middle Ages to the present day.
It is sharing a wing of the Musée du Louvre and spreads across nine floors.
The museum has period rooms reflecting the ages, such as the early 1820s salon of the Duchesse de Berry, who actually lived in the building, and several rooms reproduced from designer Jeanne Lanvin’s 1920s apartment. Don’t miss the gilt-and-green velvet bed of the Parisian courtesan who inspired the boudoir in Emile Zola’s novel Nana.
