The Private Dining Rooms

"On the ballroom mezzanine floor are other private dining rooms all carried out in decorative schemes of Louis XIV, XV, XVI, Adam and Chinese periods of design, and are called by name, in accordance with the periods of design, instead of being numbered. The principal ones of these form a group of four which can be used separately or together. These are built with parquet floors to permit dancing, although over the floor is laid removvable carpet. The walls are hung with fabric, then paneled, and the fabric antiqued and glazed. The windows are hung in damask from gold cornices. The lighting fixtures are bronze and crystal. All the chairs are gold covered in damask to match the decorative scheme in the individual rooms."
