The furnishings designed by Eugène Grasset remained in the Gillot residence in rue Madame until, between 1959 and 2004, Charles Gillot’s granddaughter, Gabrielle Richard, donated the most emblematic pieces to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs.

The pieces from Charles Gillot’s mansion on display here are the monumental fireplace and firedogs in the drawing room, and the dresser, pair of chairs, table and chandelier in the dining room. There is a display case of Japanese-style objects in the next room. Three other display cases and a print cabinet are currently in the reserve collection.

In 1905, Eugène Grasset designed furniture for the dining room of Charles Gillot’s daughter. The pieces on display are the table and chairs along the wall, a dresser and a side table. The museum has two console tables in its reserve collection.
