Les Arts Décoratif
What we love…
- We're passionate about design, so when we visit Paris Les Arts Décoratif is always on the top of our list for inspiration from the thousands of past trends in fashion, interior, advertising, and industrial design.
- Les Arts Décoratif occupies three sites focusing on different areas of applied arts and design. Musée Les Arts Décoratif (Museum of Decorative Arts) showcases interior design throughout the ages along with ceramics, and toys. Musée de la Publicité (Museum of Advertising) focuses mainly on advertising featuring hundreds of posters and packaging examples from the past. Our favorite section, Musée de la mode et du textile (Museum of Fashion and Textiles) focuses on fashion.
- Don't miss the 81,000 pieces at the Musée de la mode et du textile where you can often catch fantastic fashion exhibits from some of the greatest haute couture in history from the likes of Balenciaga, Elsa Schiaparelli, and Dior to name but a few.
