Petit Trianon: Room of the First Lady-In-Waiting
This room was last used by the Princesse de Lamballe who always remained close to the Queen. The tapestry is not original but has been reconstructed after the patterns used in the 18th century - the same pattern has been used for the curtains. This room is a mixture of the simple style at Petit Trianon (the plain walls and furniture) and the high style of Versailles (the pattern of the wooden floor). The chairs are lined with red silk that has been embroidered with white thread (there is a close-up at the bottom of this post).
