Eiffel Tower furniture to be auctioned in September

Fancy a piece of the Eiffel Tower for the dining room? Furniture once used in the Paris landmark’s high-end eatery the Jules Verne will go under the hammer in September, auctioneers said on Wednesday.

The Jules Verne’s modernist black-and-white decor hosted fine diners from around the world on the second floor of the landmark tourist site from 1983 to 2007, when the restaurant was taken over by top chef Alain Ducasse.

The sale on September 27 at Paris’s Drouot-Montmartre auction house will feature black-and-white porcelain crockery, wheeled steel-frame chairs and a black lacquered grand piano among its dozens of lots.

Design buffs will also have a chance to bid for the complete former furnishings of the Eiffel Tower‘s brasserie, Altitude 95, named for its height above sea level.
