Inside the building, the furniture, the glasswork, and the ceramics attest the quality of the different artists’ expertise. Some furniture were made for universal exhibitions of Paris (1889 and 1900) and are unique items representing the exceptional nature of the association École de Nancy.

The founder of the School of Nancy was Emile Gallé, such a master of glassmaking innovation that his New York counterpart, Louis Comfort Tiffany, traveled to Nancy to visit his factory. The fascinating Musée de l’École de Nancy is dedicated to his work and that of his associates.
