In the late 19th-century, the room was purchased by a German collector and shipped to Berlin where it is now installed in the .
While a patterned rug might seem at odds with the patterned walls, the 19th-century Serapi Persian rug from creates the perfect grounding for the room. Rounding out the design are pillows in fabric from , a plaster light fixture from ‘s Brooklyn studio, and a panther painting.
