Following “Ten Thousand Years of Luxury”, organised together with the Louvre Abu Dhabi in 2019, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs presents “Luxes”. The exhibition offers a journey through time and geography, combining moments of contemplation and more monumental scans, offering each of the 100 works presented the most relevant space for delectation and understanding. The chronological and thematic tour opens up two emblematic places that are usually closed to visitors: the Salon 1900, a living memory of the Paris Universal Exhibition, a museum commission to celebrate Art Nouveau and the French decorative arts, and the Salon des Boiseries, revealing other masterpieces of European decoration, including an incredible chandelier by Venini exhibited in Paris in 1925, a spacious room in which to read and dream, taking time to enjoy the Tuileries and the rhythm of the city. Sensitive and encyclopaedic, selective and historical, the exhibition thus offers, for the first time in Paris and at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, an insight into luxury for the contemporary world. The scenography was entrusted to Nathalie Crinière and her agency, with the exceptional participation of the European Confederation of Flax.
