Decoration of the itinerant Court

With Jacques Garcia

After the restoration of its French gardens in 2017, Chambord intends to recreate the atmosphere that prevailed inside the castle at the time of Francis I.

The restoration of François I’s mobile and textile decorations during his last visit to Chambord in 1545 and the restoration of the King’s room will bring about a spectacular, concrete and sensitive transformation of the visitor experience as soon as he enters the keep, but also a scientific and didactic experiment.

To date, no Renaissance textile decoration has been presented on a large scale or in a sustainable way in France.

This redevelopment was entrusted to Jacques Garcia, decorator and scenographer, renowned for the finesse of his evocations of great historical settings, who has been working for many years as an advisor in major national institutions.
