L’emozione del decoro /
The Emotion of Decoration
From 21 January to 12 June 2016 the Musée des Arts Décoratifs of Paris will be putting on show 300 of the most emblematic specimens of wallpaper from its extraordinary collection of over 400,000 pieces, the largest in the world. The exhibition will compare the production of different periods and origins to illustrate the vast range of styles and craftsmanship from the 18th century up until the present day. Entitled Faire le mur, it covers six main themes in which antique and contemporary are mixed up and reveal unexpected connections, showing that wallpaper is not just an extremely creative means of decoration, but the reflection of a culture and a lifestyle.
