World's Finest Wares Retired

Located in the Louvre museum's western wing, known as the Pavillon de Marsan, this museum was founded in 1905 by members of the Union des Arts Décoratifs. It houses and displays furniture, interior design, altar pieces, religious paintings, artistic objects, tapestries, wallpaper, ceramics and glassware, plus toys from the Middle Ages to the present day. The museum also contains carpets such as those from Aubusson, porcelain such as that by the Manufacture nationale de Sèvres, and a large number of glass pieces by René Lalique and Émile Gallé among others. It includes numerous works in the Art Nouveau and Art Déco styles and modern examples by designers like Eileen Gray and Charlotte Perriand. However, the museum's deep holdings range back to 13th-century Europe.
