Diplomatic Reception Rooms

Recommended
These reception rooms that were opened in 1961 are a masterpiece of 18C interior design. They are furnished with one of the most impressive American decorative arts collections in the country. The architect Edward Vason Jones redesigned the rooms in the style of great 18C American town houses. The ornately plastered ceilings, pilasters, wood panelling, entablatures and pediments complement the elegant furnishings.
