The  Palais Paar  room (Wrightsman Galleries  , the Metropolitan Museum of Art)
A testimony to the widespread influence of French eighteenth-century styles is the  Palais Paar paneling, created in about 1765–72  in Vienna. Displaying triple moldings enriched with foliate and shell motifs and flowers, the  paneling is executed in a French late Rococo style. This large, formal room features one of the famous Savonnerie carpets created during the late seventeenth century for the  Louvre Palace. Among the furnishings is  one of the famous  Savonnerie carpets created during the late seventeenth century for the  Louvre Palace, gilt bronze, Sèvres porcelain, silver, and gold boxes, a wall clock in gilt bronze by Charles Cressent, as well as seat furniture made for the gaming rooms of two French royal palaces.
