E-9: English Drawing Room of the Georgian period, 1770-1800

Miniature room with cream-colored walls with inset columns on the side walls and two columns at the back framing a dark wooden bookshelf. A large crystal chandelier hangs from a curved ceiling patterned with geometric designs in relief. A beige floral rug fills the floor, upon which a yellow couch and other upholstered wood furniture are unevenly spaced. On the right wall is an ornate fireplace with a mantle framing a painting of a landscape.
