Musée Sobirats
     
In this 18th century townhouse belonging to the Armand de Châteauvieux family, the parlors decorated with gypsery motifs typical of the Comtat Venaissin serve as a backdrop for the city's collections of decorative arts. A sedan chair that once belonged to the Count de Sobirats, an important patron to the museum that bears his name, welcomes visitors at the entrance. Going from boudoir to parlor, visitors will then discover Provençal furniture items (Monseigneur d'Inguimbert's straw-bottomed sofa as well as an imposing armoire of the Arles type) in the company of remarkable furniture pieces from the 18th century. On upper level, the Louis XV grand salon, adorned with overdoors representing pastoral scenes painted in bistre monochromes, presents an ensemble of armchairs and sofas upholstered with Aubusson tapestries. On the second floor, the mahogany furniture in the Empire salon evokes the stylistic evolution of the early 19th century. Tapestries from Aubusson, faience from Marseilles and Moustiers, landscapes and portraits highlight the visit and recreate the warm, intimate atmosphere of an urban aristocratic dwelling from the France of old.
