  Grand Trianon - Family room of king Louis-Philippe
by breughel

The family living room of king Louis-Philippe is one of my preferred rooms of the right wing of the Grand Trianon. In the beginning there were two rooms, a bedroom and an anteroom of the first apartment of Louis XIV. Under Napoleon I these were the Officers room and the Princes room.
King Louis-Philippe joined the two rooms into a living room intended for the meetings of the royal family and their guests.
Paintings on mythological subjects date from the end of the 17th century.
The furniture was made by Brion and Jacob-Desmalter. The princesses could arrange their needlework in numbered drawers of the family work-tables.
It is a very beautiful, very clear living room with beautiful harmonies of colours.

Address: Versailles, Grand Trianon.

    Victor Hugo devoted an entire chapter of Les Misérables to Louis-Philippe. This was of course a digression, since it had nothing to do with the story.
