For nearly a decade, one of the world's greatest palaces has also housed a dusty building site. Now, thanks to a $35.4 million restoration, one of the Louvre Museum's most exciting collections, the 18th-century decorative arts wing, has been reopened to its full glory.Paid for entirely by private donations, the nine-year restoration modernized creaky halls and corridors and built new rooms for over 2,000 design objects. The Louvre's north section, the Richelieu wing, has been transformed into 33 glittering salons, full of gold mirrors, velvet chaise-lounges and cabinets with intricate precious stone inlays.
