Jacques Grange’s Paris apartment.

[V]iew of the library that leads through from the living room to the dining room. The portrait is 18th century, the drawing over the door is by Bérard, the bronzes are from the 50s and the chair in the foreground was designed by Emilio Terry in the mid-thirties.

During the Georgian and Victorian periods (1714-1901), campaign furniture allowed military officers and gentlemen in the field to enjoy a similar standard of living as at home in Britain.
