The furnishings are set out in museum fashion other than such important items as fireplaces. One with a porcupine is the first item seen, to represent King Louis XII. The room has a finely made beamed ceiling and some tall pieces of carved oak and a large ceramic plate all of the 16C. Nearby is a glass case of medallions created by Giovanni Nini.
