T/m is honored to premiere three new fine-scale miniature room settings on long-term loan from Ede & Ravenscroft, the oldest tailor in London and the exclusive provider of robes for the British Royal Family. Treasures of the Kings highlights Louis XV and Louis XVI royal furniture arranged in two room settings from the Palace of Versailles and one from the Palace of Fontainebleau. The centerpiece of the collection is Denis Hillman’s Bureau du Roi. Comprised of over 16,000 individual pieces of fruitwood in seven marquetry designs, the desk took over four years to complete.
