On a visit to Paris in 1897, William Waldorf Astor was shown the gilded panelling in Madame de Pompadour's 18th century dining room at the Chateau d'Asnieres. Realising the proportions exactly matched those of the dining room at Cliveden he bought the panelling, table and chairs, then had the entire room reconstructed in his home.
