Marble Bench

Marble Bench

Iterations of the marble bench designed in 1934 can be found throughout the North Vista room. With the familiar oak and scroll motifs carved into its legs, the bench provides the room with a certain friendliness, offering a functional seat to rest and appreciate the grandeur of the view.
