We just heard about ANOTHER French decor and design time capsule (here is the one from last year). In 1905, Louis Mantin died after arranging for his home in the French town of Moulins to be set aside for 100 years and then opened to the public as a museum. Well, it's time has come...

...and the treasures that the home holds, including what might be the most interesting part; a glimpse into how people (well-to-do gentlemen, anyway) lived at the turn of the last century, are finally on show to the public.

According to the pieces on Gizmodo and the BBC, it "is full of artifacts and pieces that Mantin had collected over the course of his life, including paintings, tapestries, prehistoric flints, Egyptian relics and other pieces from the Medieval and Neolithic eras."
