The Delaware room represents a gentleman’s study of the 1780s. In the 18th century the word “study” referred to the room, while “library” referred to a collection of books. Furnishings like the Pembroke or breakfast table and upholstered armchair could be easily moved to suit a need, such as in front of the fireplace for extra warmth or by a window for light. The fitted fashionable green check slipcovers or “case covers” were placed over upholstered chairs to protect the expensive upholstery in this instance red wool.

The Delaware Period Room Virtual Tour is a gift of the Delaware State Society DAR.
