The boudoir linked the terrace and the bedroom, separated from it by clear glass that could be closed with curtains. The walls are clad with panelling painted grey and heightened with gold, and skirting sculpted with basketwork motif.
The display cases and glazed door on the side walls are framed by Sienna marble columns and surmounted by four tinted and gilded stucco bas-reliefs fixed to glass plaques, depicting vases of flowers surrounded by pheasants, squirrels, weasels and tropical birds. The floor is tiled with black and white marble with a marble border matching the fireplace.
Everything contrived to make the boudoir a calm place conducive to contemplating the objects in the display cases, showing Jeanne Lanvin’s various interests.
