Vaucluse House Drawing Room refurbishment

 

Over the next few months, several significant pieces of furniture from the drawing room will be taken off display and sent to specialist upholsterers and conservators for work as part of the Vaucluse House Centenary project.

The refurbishment of the Vaucluse House drawing room – considered one of the finest surviving colonial interiors in Australia – has been made possible thanks to the support of our generous donors, who collectively have raised $100,000 towards the delivery of this important project.

A further $25,000 needs to be raised to ensure we can proceed with the upgrade to the Orientation Room. Find out more about this project and how you can donate.

Much of the furniture in the room, including five Wentworth-provenanced chairs, was starting to show signs of wear and tear. Our plans are to reupholster the furniture and create new window furnishings using traditional methods and trades based on authentic sources.

Stay tuned for more details on the progress of this exciting project.
