An excellent article from you Muhler, Many thanks for that. It is important to look after these wonderful buildings, especially as they see so many public events held there.

It's named after the silk-wallpaper that used to hang there from 1924. But after almost a hundred years the wallpaper was worn out, not least because people over the decades had to touch the wallpaper. So fingers combined with cigarette smoke and what not took it's toll.

But now a new silk-wallpaper has replaced the old one. and there is a sample at hand for people to touch, so that they may keep their little hands away from the wallpaper.
The 250 meters of very, very expensive silk wallpaper was made in India. It simply wasn't possible to find a manufacturer in Europe who was able to make the wallpaper.
At the same time the Velvet Chamber has been renovated, not only ahead of schedule but cheaper than expected!
The cost of the wallpaper alone was almost 3½ million DKK = 469.000 € = 498.900 $ = 330.700 £
But then the wallpaper is expected to last for 200 years.

But look for yourselves and enjoy the craftsmanship.

Until 1933 the room was used as throne-room.

The main decoration is the Danish national crest, with three lions.

As you can see the Velvet Chamber is where the DRF line up to receive guests, before entering the adjacent Gobelin Hall, where official dinners often take place.
