The Tapestry Room at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum was restored to its original glory as part of the Museum's building and restoration project, after having served for many years as a temporary concert hall. The Museum’s concerts now take place in Calderwood Hall in the new wing, and the Tapestry Room has been returned to its former configuration as a grand tapestry hall. Conservation treatment of the space included the cleaning of its Mercer-tiled floors, restoration of the French medieval stone fireplace, reinstallation of select art and furniture objects, replacement of historic textiles with reproductions, and new lighting.
