French wallpaper by Zuber dominates the entrance, lobby and second floor hallway. This particular motif was originally designed in 1848 by three different artists. It's called "El Dorado" and depicts four continents, Africa, Asia, America and Europe. It was block-printed using 1554 carved-wood blocks and came in 24 panels. The Zuber wallpaper company is over 200 years old and this beautiful wallpaper can still be special ordered even today. The Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum featured "El Dorado" in an exhibit in late summer 1997. You can find out more about this wall paper at the Smithsonian website.
