We are pleased to invite you to a private guided visit (in English) of:


Les Réserves du Mobilier National





We will take you through an unprecedented guided tour of the Mobilier National accompanied by a English speaking tour guide.  You will have the opportunity to explore the behind the scenes of this historical institution; which is more than four centuries old. 

Since 1604, this organization has been supporting the government, the Garde-Meuble de la Couronne, the Mobilier Impérial and Mobilier National, with one of its main missions being to take care of the furnishings of government buildings and royal residences under the Ancient Regime and the Elysée today. 

Our tour guide will welcome us at the entrance of this imposing building, constructed of reinforced concrete and designed by the architect Perret.

Our visit will continue along the second floor to the reserve's largest hall: the Perret room. It houses hundreds of prestigious furnishings from various eras and styles, arranged on shelves or placed on the floor, covered up or available for viewing. Here we will see objects that were used by France's highest-ranking officials, kings, emperors and presidents. Your guide will specifically show you the desks of several of France's presidents (Auriol, D'Estaing, Mitterand, etc.). 

We’ll then descend to the basement reserves, where flags used for welcoming foreign leaders are stored. We’ll go past the imposing 5-axis CNC machine and finally, you'll end your visit in the carpet reserve area.
