The Dining  Room - George  Eastman  House

The Dining Area – This home, intended in oak, mahogany, blue, and silver, was a loaded but cozy setting for the considerable meals enjoyed each working day when George Eastman was in residence. The stylish oak panel is “lime washed” – rubbed with whitewash – and waxed. The primary complete has only been refreshed. Authorities restored the Gothic strapwork ceiling entirely, which experienced been fully eliminated. On the floor is Eastman’s Persian rug, in blue, yellow, and rose hues, and the silk velvet draperies resemble people he experienced procured for the home in 1905. The home furnishings is a combination of models very carefully introduced alongside one another in this panelled enclosure to give the aura of an old and stately home. British heritage is evoked in A. H. Davenport’s Georgian model eating desk and the William and Mary model chairs with their blue leather-based and silver nails. The shirred silk and silver chandelier is a replica of Eastman’s primary, with its filament light-weight bulbs. Found at the George Eastman Dwelling, 900 East Ave in Rochester, NY.
