From Henri IV's reign to the death of Louis XIV, despite the Fronde rebellion and the flight from the court to Versailles, the aristocracy built and maintained in Paris, throughout the century, so magnificent mansions that visitors commonly called them "palaces".
While Parisian cabinetmaking was developing and silk and tapestry factories were reappearing on the spur of Colbert, how did the "précieuses" and the aristocrats furnish these large family mansions built by Le Vau or Mansart?
By comparing for the first tome unpublished archives, the paintings and prints of the period with the preserved mansions, this book offers to understand the intimacy of the great residences of "Louis XIV's century".
