Help us to bring back the 1932 ambiance of the yellow bedroom
When he designed the Villa Cavrois, Mallet-Stevens included all the interior decoration, right down to the smallest piece of furniture!
In order to recreate as closely as possible the spirit of the place, the Centre des monuments nationaux, since it opened the villa to visitors in 2015, has operated a refurnishing policy prioritising the purchase of the original furniture when it becomes available, and opting for its restitution when elements have been destroyed or are too damaged.
Help us to continue refurnishing the yellow bedroom, designed at the time to be used by one of the seven children of the Cavrois family, then a young man, and help give this room back its original look.
In February 2020, the Centre des monuments nationaux was able to acquire the cerused oak table that belonged in this room.
Skilled art craftsmen are now restoring the rest of the furniture: a wall fitting with 12 drawers, a sofa, a writing desk, a bed and a display cabinet.
The cost of restoring all the furniture in the yellow bedroom is estimated to be 100,000 euros.
