2015 Conference venue

The Geffrye Museum

The Traditional Paint Forum is proud to be working together with the Geffrye Museum again after our conference in 2009.  The Geffrye Museum specialises in the history of the English domestic interior.The main body of the museum is housed in the Grade I-listed almshouses of the Ironmongers’ Company, built in 1714. The museum shows the changing style of the English domestic interior in a series of eleven displayed period rooms from 1600 to the present day. The emphasis is on the furnishings, pictures, and ornaments of the urban middle classes of London. There will be time in the programme to explore the period rooms.
