The largest museum focused on the decorative arts is, of course, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. Although its address is fittingly the Rue de Rivoli, it's actually located in a wing of the Louvre Palace (though accessed separately). Its wonderful collection and location make it a great place to browse. More...

You can also visit the Musée Nissim de Camondo, near the Parc Monceau. This is considered a branch of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, and its collections are located in a beautiful hôtel particulier, or mansion. More...
