Well, at the The Cloisters in New York. And they are The Hunt of the Unicorn Tapestries, a series of seven tapestries dating from 1495 to 1505. THIS is a link to the Met’s Online Collections page.

Not furniture but still nice.

As we all know, unicorn hunting was entirely too efficient in that now they are effectively extinct.

Even with this knowledge, it is an opportunity to see all seven tapestries in one room. They are quite impressive.

They have a small collection of medieval fashion footwear:

What your shoes aren't hinged?

And much, much more. As I wrote last week, The Cloisters is a part of Metropolitan Museum of Art housed in building that is an amalgam of five medieval abbeys. It contains the Met’s collection of European medieval art. Next time you get to New York, make an effort to head uptown and visit The Cloisters. I promise you it is well worth the effort.
