Marie Antoinette's love for music meant that several musical instrument have been placed in the Grand Salon - among them a harp, the Queen's favourite instrument.
This room is also illuminated by a large lantern hanging from the ceiling and candlesticks placed next to the large mirror. The lantern was ordered by Marie Antoinette in 1784 to replace the chandelier chosen by Louis XV - the lantern is gilded in bronze and decorated with blue lapis. The lantern was sold after the ransacking of Versailles and the Trianons but was eventually recovered and reinstalled to its original place in 2008.
Originally Madame du Barry had ordered a set of furniture - including a sofa, six lounging chairs and nineteen chairs - decorated with blue flowers but the set was lost during the revolution. The paintings above the doors are a part of the original décor.
