The salon now houses a new selection of 170 paintings hung side by side and one above another, known as salon style. Other new components of the Grand Salon include hand-dyed silk loomed draperies of French Imberline damask, a state of the art lighting system that mimics natural light, and a refurbished crystal chandelier.
