Design for the east elevation of the Library, Room 196 (the Green Drawing Room), Windsor Castle, c.1826
The furniture-makers Nicholas Morel and George Seddon went into partnership in 1826 to decorate George IV’s new Private Apartments in Windsor Castle. The firm produced a series of designs showing the principal elevations of each room, with the intended furniture, wallcoverings and curtains. The Library (now the Green Drawing Room) was to be the most spectacular of the King’s reception rooms.
