Guided tour of the exhibition : Le chic !

Manufacture des Gobelins - Mobilier national
Guided tour of the exhibition : « Le chic ! Arts décoratifs et mobilier de 1930 à 1960 » – 12th October 2022 – 19th February 2023 .

Presented for the first time in a single exhibition, nearly 200 previously unseen works from the collections of the Mobilier National will revive the spirit of French chic from 12th October 2022 to 19th February 2023.

Accompanied by a guide, you will discover iconic works from the period 1930-1960, representing these three essential decades in the development of the decorative arts up to the beginnings of contemporary design.

A symbol of French savoir-faire, the collections presented will allow you to appreciate the richness and diversity of the decorative arts of the period, which are based as much on the luxury and quality of the materials used as on the search for line, aesthetics and design. Your guide will invite you to encounter the creative genius of renowned decorators, from André Arbus to Jules Leleu, Marc du Plantier and Gilbert Poillerat, and will reveal the secrets of the materials and techniques used by these illustrious collaborators of the Mobilier National.

In a staging designed by Vincent Darré, this guided tour will be an opportunity to discover the exceptional work carried out by the workshops' craftsmen and masters of art, contributing to the meticulous restoration of pieces as complex as they are varied.

Finally, by highlighting these unique pieces, "Le chic !" is also evocative of the undeniable modernity of an institution that is more than three centuries old, and whose collections still adorn the most important places in the Republic.
