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.

It is an unfortunate fact that in this day and age, public buildings needs to be secured against terrorism.
And now the permanent barrier against speeding cars that could drive into say a demonstration at the square in front of the Parliament or a car carrying a suicide bomber crashing into the building is in place.
It consists of 85 granite balls as you can tell from this photo:

The article: https://jyllands-posten.dk/indland/E...-granitkugler/

The aim was to ensure that safety measures are as discreet as possible, or if that is not possible, blending in as much as possible with the overall architecture.

A most attractive design for an anti-terrorist barrier and seems to fit perfectly to the surroundings.
