The Nave

At the heart of the institution is a large vessel enlightened by some very original lights created by the architect Sylvain Dubuisson and the light conceptor Hervé Descottes. The walls are ornate with carved decorations and the floor is a wonderful mosaic with large floral volutes.

The side galleries of the nave are opened to the view of the rue de Rivoli and the Tuileries garden.

The permanent collections of the museum are presented on the three levels around the Nave and are visible through large windows.

The width and the beauty of the architecture and the rooms around make it a perfect place to organize a great reception, in between the exhibitions, or to hold some private visits.

In 2012, between the 16th of April and the 6th of July, it will be possible to rent the beautifull Nave of Les Arts Decoratifs to organise some private events.
