Maison Mantin

I don't know if many of you have heard about this, but it's a great story. A rich French bachelor didn't want to be forgotten, so before he died in 1905, he declared in a 100 years that his mansion should be made into a museum for all the people of his city to enjoy. Well, after extensive restoration the mansion has finally reopened.

His collection of eccentric and decadent furniture and art is really incredible to look at. Check it out!
