There is an apartment near the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Gustave Eiffel constructed the apt. for himself and for his personally invited elite guests. It wasn't available to the public. It featured warm wallpaper, soft chintz, wooden cabinets, and a grand piano.

It was recently made available for public viewing where guests can peer inside through a glass door. A mannequin of Gustave Eiffel sits inside.
