This is a gorgeous tiny room I adore at my favourite museum @vamuseum that I wanted to share with you. Hope you enjoy 💕
The Sérilly Cabinet, by Jean-Siméon Rousseau de la Rottière and Jules-Hugues Rousseau, marble chimneypiece by Philippe-Laurent Roland with mounts by Pierre Gouthière, 1778, France (Paris) 💛
This small room, or cabinet, was made in 1778 for the Parisian townhouse of Antoine Megret de Sérilly, Paymaster General to the French Army, and his wife, Anne-Marie-Louise. It would have been used as a private retreat and for entertaining close friends. The decoration in the fashionable Neoclassical style was designed by the Rousseau brothers, who had worked for Queen Marie-Antoinette. It epitomises the elegance and luxury of aristocratic Parisian interiors just before the Revolution.
