The Marquee

The furnishings of the Bedroom are supplemented by objects of Russian porcelain and glass and French bronze. On the central wall over the bed is a tapestry of Paul I (St Petersburg Spalier Workshop, 1799). The enfilade of rooms comes to an end at a small oval room, the Marquee. This room has an exit that leads out onto the closed balcony joined to the Private Garden. A long semicircular sofa, decorated with a wide border and sewn with coloured threads depicting various flowers, is placed against the wall. This room was intended for quiet repose and needlework. The shaded balcony offered refuge from the heat on warm days, thanks to its cast-iron roof with elegant ornamental designs. A beautiful view opens up from the balcony onto the flowerbeds of the Private Garden.
