From the Royal Attic...

Even Royals need to clear out the attic once in a while and in June 2014, 1200 pieces of furniture and household effects from Danish castles were auctioned north of Copenhagen. For the first time in 60 years, the Danish Royal Family put much of their lesser furniture up for sale: desks, mirrors, chairs and even beds that used to furnish a number of castles around the country, e.g. Amalienborg and Fredensborg. One of these items has now found its way into Evergreen’s inventory.
