The Boudoir of the Duchess was originally green. After her death, the room, the screen and the furniture were stretched in a purple fabric with a silver brocade, in 1869, in sign of mourning.
Marquetry furniture and piano by the Grohé brothers, the King Louis-Philippe's wood-workers. A chair of Boulard from the Chateau of Versailles (eighteenth century, Louis XVI).
The Purple Salon was restored with the support of the Friends of the Condé Museum and the Lelièvre institution (Tassinari and Chatel).
