Graceful design and furnishings carry into the dining room. Surrounding the client’s dining table by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret from Chandigarh (c. 1936) are a set of 1930s Art Deco rosewood dining chairs by Maurice Jallot.

Astride each window are richly designed Fortuny drapes which hang just beneath the dentil moulding to showcase the height of the room. In front of the silk upholstered walls at the east end of the room a Modigliani sculpture rests atop a plinth with sombre strength and simplicity.
