Recently the galleries have undergone renovations to better highlight their collection of French furniture and other decorative arts, which had royal reference.
You see examples of eighteenth-century French salons with the period rooms - which represent the Rococo with its ornate style - in addition to Louis XVI style, which I personally prefer.
Louis XVI chairs with the fluted legs,notice the parquet floors with it's geometric designs and marquetry which was popular during that period
The lighting in the period rooms was subdued - as if it was candle lit – in order to recreate an atmosphere, and to show the reflections in the surfaces of the mirrors, chandeliers and the gold leafed elements.While standing in the middle of the rooms, I felt as if I was transported in a time machine just to have a glimpse of how life was during that period. The aura was simply amazing.
