Inspired by the Green Salon at the Chinese Pavilion at Drottningholm Palace, Roehm utilized Farrow & Ball's Calke Green paint for the walls in the Chinoiserie Room. The Chinese statues, which Roehm has since painted the same shade of green, come from New York antiques dealer John Rosselli. After finding the console in Florence, Roehm had it painted green and gold. The Hector Pagoda and the Chinese Chippendale chair are both by British furniture maker Jonathan Sainsbury.
