The walls of this room are paneled in natural oak which frames the Aubusson tapestries depicting the fables of La Fontaine. The furniture includes two “voyeuse” chairs made by Jean-Baptiste-Claude Séné for the Turkish Room of the Château de Montreuil, residence of King Louis XVI’s sister, Madame Elisabeth, and a large roll-top desk, stamped by Claude-Charles Saunier, that stands in the alcove. The room also features a Bacchante by Elisabeth Vigée-LeBrun, clocks, barometers, candelabra and vases, carefully chosen and arranged by Moïse de Camondo.
