Dining Room

Charles Carroll, Jr. ordered a “crimson and drab carpet” for his dining room and this reference, found in the Carroll papers, is the basis for the Dining Room's Brussels carpet. A “crumb cloth” protects the carpet (which would have been very expensive) from spilled food and wear and tear. The table is set with imported English silver, ceramics, and glassware. The freestanding columns along the chimneypiece are an elegant and unusual architectural feature.
