X-RATED: For one night only, on Jan. 24, the Opéra Garnier will display copies of Catherine the Great of Russia’s “secret” furniture – including a wooden table and chair sculpted with racy ornamental details. She had a collection of such sexy furniture at her Gatchina Palace. The recreations by Henryot & Cie will be sold on a per-order basis.
“Le mobilier érotique inspiré par le cabinet secret de Catherine II de Russie,” on Jan. 24 at Opéra Garnier, 8 Rue Scribe, 75009 Paris. Tel.: +33-1-40-01-17-89
