The word that comes to my mind for this room (and for the other photos you've posted of the Salomon townhouse) is sumptuous!
A lovely interior, but have they truly captured the feeling of a Louis XVI interior? The velvet chair and sofa with their lace coverings seem out of place and the bed and the dais for the bed and night table is a little much, in my opinion. However, the boiserie and the rest of the furnishings and fabrics appear quite nice. I wonder if the woodwork came from a Parisian hotel particulier or chateau and was re-fitted for the room, or if it was a new creation by 'Allard et fils'?
I can't imagine it was comfortable living in such grandeur, but it is fascinating to see how the wealthy chose to live during the Gilded Age. Thank you for these wonderful posts on the Salomon Townhouse.

Yes, the interior is far superior to the exterior. While the platform for the bed would have to go, I could be comfortable with only a few minor decorative adjustments in that handsome bedroom.
