The art of the seat exhibited at The Gobelins

From the heights of these seats, over three hundred and coming from the reserves of National furniture, three centuries of French history are represented. The institution, thanks to its rich collections, presents a very convincing look at what was produced in this domain by during the monarchy, the Empires, and the Republic, from the 18th century to today. Some of these seats, arranged in various decors by Jacques Garcia, are placed at the heart of what would have been their environment in reconstitutions of historical settings, while others are purposely placed in a more fantasy situation. This comfortable trip back in time is the perfect occasion for you to admire the work of numerous generations of high-level professionals: woodworkers, gilders, upholsterers, decorators…
