Louis XVI Suite Front (Yount Suite Front)
This suite was occupied by Mrs. Yount. It consists of a sitting room, bedroom, dressing room, and bath. Furnishings were from the Louis XVI period. The room is exquisite, with crystal and bronze chandeliers. In the sitting room the furniture is ornately accented with numerous Dresden China Flowers. This chandelier and the wall sconces were designed by Mrs. Yount for the family home in Beaumont, Texas. The original seamless velvet cut carpets were also woven in Scotland. In both Mrs. Yount's suite and her daughter's suite, there are rugs for the bathroom that fit perfectly around the bathtubs. Every cabinet and drawer has a lock. Mrs Yount's private vault is in the small dressing room connecting both suites.
