Red house museum

Even today, it reflects the lustre of large-scale, upper middle-class living in a rare unity with its complete furnishings in the Rococo, Louis XVI and Empire styles.
The study with a sumptuous linen wallpaper, the table covered with a marvellous coat of arms service in the dining room, a kitchen with shining brass and copper kettles, drawing rooms with Aachen- Liège writing bureaus, glass cabinets and comfortable lounge suites, a hall with valuable Gobelin tapestry and bedrooms with cradles and wash basins all  beckon to a journey into the 18th century.
 The self-supporting, winding staircase built of oak in which 21 putto scenes depict the different phases of cloth making spans three floors and is world-famous. In the old office rooms, two original, preserved cloth pattern books with a total of 6000 designs in the most varied patterns are testimony of the variety and the superior quality of the cloth traded throughout Europe by his company at that time.
