The Musee des Arts Decoratifs is housed within the walls of the Louvre and celebrates the centuries of remarkable French style and design from the Middle Ages up to present day.
Furniture, wallpaper, writing desks, and period rooms provide examples of dazzling craftsmanship and artistry.
Whether you are visiting Paris for the first or 90th time, the museum offers up a delightful exhibition of textiles and fashion, beautifully preserved, which never fails to impress.
Be sure to see the collection of poster art with over 50,000 pieces dating from the 18th century through WW II. There are many extraordinary film posters on display.
It is easy to understand why the French are so fiercely proud of their accomplishments in the realm of decorative art, as one comes away from this lovely collection feeling more inspired to get creative juices flowing.
