A recent photograph released from the palace revealed a vibrant sitting room with bold décor – and a €12,500 (£10,000) chair, which is a true work of art!

Your eye may be drawn to the colourful wallpaper, lavish chandelier or even the bright blue chairs that Queen Maxima and Indonesia's Minister Retno Marsudi are sat upon, however, the woven gold chair in the corner of the frame is the piece in question.

The incredible knotted chairs are in museums around the world

Elsewhere in the palace, the couple each have their own fully equipped home offices so they can work from home effectively.

A range of books, photos and ornaments are also on display throughout Queen Maxima's office, located within lit-up glass-fronted cabinets on either side of the window.
