The history of the Mobilier National and the Manufactures Nationales of the Gobelins, the Savonnerie and Beauvais are inextricably linked. Each of these structures has served to furnish the halls of power under different regimes since Louis XIV. Under the Fifth Republic the institution, even if its function has evolved, remains the true Furniture Warehouse of the Nation.

In the course of this Discussion, the history and the functions of the institution as well as the wealth of its collections will be touched on.
