The Imperial Furniture Collection is one of the world’s largest furniture museums. It is notable for its unique presentation of the objects in an ambience that recalls a depot. Visitors can discover items from the Habsburg era – after all, the museum traces its origins back to an institution founded by Maria Theresia – as well as 21st-century furniture designs. And, in-between, a journey through the history of design focusing on the pure elegance of the Biedermeier, the typical forms and colors of the Wiener Moderne, the grandiose bentwood furniture of Gebrüder Thonet, and true showpieces from a number of imperial interiors. The Imperial Furniture Collection is always worth a visit, particularly for anyone interested in furniture design, artisanal techniques, domestic culture, and, of course, design in general.
