Grand Reception Hall in the Great Kremlin Palace
The drawing room is decorated in the Renaissance style.

The walls are upholstered in gold brocade with green flowers.  The ceiling is painted by Araria.

The furniture is gilt, covered in silk material, the same color and design as the walls. 

One notices four tables made by Blechschmid in the style of Boule.

On the Carrera marble fireplace is an ancient French clock in the form of Raphael in the Temple of Glory.
In the middle of the drawing room one will see an enormous porcelain candleabra in the Japanese style standing on a gilded pedestal in the form of a jardeniere, and in the niches, two more candleabras, also porcelain, in Chinese style.  These candelabras are made by the Imperial Porcelain Factory.

The doors, covered with glass, are inlaid pallisander.
