Riga Art Nouveau Museum-Sitting room
Riga

Sitting room 

A sitting room is the central presentation space of an apartment where hosts receive guests, drink tea, talk about opera shows and politics, discuss the latest fashion in Paris and what is new in Riga. Activities in the sitting room include listening to music, singing and sometimes even dancing... 

The authentic interior of 1903 has been renovated in the room. Walls are painted the same blue as they were before. The finish of the sitting room features floral elements inspired by the Latvian nature. An ornamental frieze with daisy motifs is located on the upper part of the walls. The most splendid finish is that of the ceiling - a stucco decor with elements of daisy blossoms as well as a band of ornamental painting. An interesting accent of the room is the bay window. It is separated from the room with a wooden decor in the character of Art Nouveau. The original parquet flooring, tiles, doors, windows and heating pipes have been preserved. Authentic Art Nouveau items, originally used in Riga, have been placed in the room.  http://www.jugendstils.riga.lv/index.php?lang=eng&p=2&pp=3

More About Riga

Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
