The Crystal Room, decorated in 1937 by the well-known New York firm McMillen & Co., reminded Miss Duke of her father, James B. Duke, and was generally not used for guests. So, even though Duke Farms was famous for entertaining, it was also a refuge from the relentless publicity that surrounded Miss Duke. It was here where she was allowed a private life.

An eclectic and glamorous mix of styles and objects reflect Miss Duke's interest and lifestyle—the sleek 20th century elements such as the mirrored wall, rock crystal objects and the still-life by Redon, and the traditional 18th century European furniture.

Perhaps the most dramatic piece is the North European scarlet and gilt-japanned bureau cabinet complemented with a set of six Iberian scarlet and gilt-painted side chairs. A pair of German Baroque scarlet and gilt-japanned table caskets give additional color.

More sober pieces among the finest pieces of French 18th century furniture in the Duke Collection are the late-Louis XV bureau plat by C.C. Saunier and the suite of Louis XV walnut seat furniture comprising of eight fauteuils and a canapé.
