The dinner table in the dining room is set with an extremely fine French porcelain service manufactured by Sèvres in the mid-1800s. A coffee table has been set in the Gustavian Room with cups in the shape of a rose from the Russian Kuznetsov factory. The golden-hued Empire Room displays a table set with tea cups featuring a floral design and gilt detailing in Rococo Revival style by the Russian Kornilov Brothers. The Christmas tree in the main hall is hung with roses made of crepe paper, gold lametta and ribbons with the Latin text Gloria in Excelsis Deo (Glory to God in the Highest Heaven).
