Before he created the Royal Pavilion, George’s interest in exotic interiors was shown in the decoration of his other residences.

These beautifully decorated console tables started life in the Chinese Drawing Room at Carlton House, the Prince’s London residence. The Chinese Drawing Room, created in c.1790, was the precursor of the exotic interiors of the Royal Pavilion. It included a pair of console tables in a Chinese style, made by Adam Weisweiler in Paris. In 1819 George had copies of each table made by Bailey and Sanders. All four tables were sent to Brighton for use in this room. Three of the tables are now back in position here in the Music Room Gallery.
