An Art Deco Pullman car, Madame de Pompadour’s writing table, and the bronze bed of 19th-century prostitute Valtesse de La Bigne are just a few of the nearly 6,000 artifacts housed in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Museum of Decorative Arts), which first opened in 1905 in the Marsan wing of the Louvre. Managed by an organization called Les Arts Décoratifs, this 10-story Beaux-Arts museum houses only a portion of the organization's complete collection of almost 150,000 pieces, which range from furniture and tapestries to ceramics, toys, and even vehicles. The artifacts date from the Middle Ages to present day.
