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."
