In this Federal style designer showhouse living room, the long, narrow room is given virtual width by creating a hand painted topiary mural replicating garden design during the Federal period. The Federal style of the house is reflected in Martha Washington chairs upholstered in two fabrics for 360- degree interest, a damask sofa, and a fabulous Bokhara rug in reds greens and yellow.
An exquisite antique Federal server claims pride of place topped by the red metal shades of a pair of antique bouillotte lamps and a silver domed server.
Swagged draperies reflect all the colors of the room and frame the gardens beyond. A pair of ormolu and cut glass column lamps frame the mural.
