The White House Rooms available include the Oval Office, the State Dining Room, the Blue Room, the Green Room, the Red Room, the East Room, Yellow Oval Room, and the Lincoln Bedroom with more rooms coming soon! Accurate and 3-D Interior View of White House Rooms. The Oval Office: Architect Nathan C. Wyeth at the order of President William Howard Taft designed the office in 1909. Named for its distinctive oval shape, the Oval Office is part of the complex of offices that make up the West Wing of the White House. The Blue Room: Is located in the center of the State Floor of the White House. The President uses the Blue Room to receive many of his guests, from foreign heads of state to members of Congress. State Dining Room: The State Dining Room, which now seats as many as 140 guests, was originally much smaller and served at various times as a drawing room, office, and Cabinet Room. Not until the Andrew Jackson administration was it called the "State Dining Room," although previous Presidents had used it for formal dinners. The Red Room: The Red Room traditionally has served as a parlor or sitting room; recent Presidents have had small dinner parties here. During the Madison administration, the room became Dolley Madison's famous salon. Yellow dominated the color scheme until 1845, when President and Mrs. Polk furnished the room with a dark crimson French Antique style suite and a ruby carpet. Soon the "Washington Parlor" became the "Red Room." The Green Room: James Hoban, the original architect of the President's House, intended that the space now called the "Green Room" be used as a "Common Dining Room." Charles McKim renovated the White House for President Theodore Roosevelt in 1902. In the Green Room, the architect covered the walls in green velvet and relocated a white marble mantle from the State Dining Room. Remarkable works of art grace the Green Room walls. The East Room: Ascending from the Ground Floor Corridor, a marble stairway leads the White House visitor to the state floor level. Off the landing to the right is the East Room. The largest of the state rooms, it was designed by James Hoban and George Washington to be a "Public Audience Room." The Yellow Oval Room: There is another oval room above the Blue Room. This is called the Yellow Oval Room and is often used for formal private receptions for important guests. The room has three doors, which lead to the Central Hall, the Truman Balcony, and the Living Room. Dolley Madison first decorated the room in yellow damask in 1809. In 1851, Abigail Fillmore got an allocation from Congress for books to make the room into the first White House library. The Harrison Family continued to use the room as a library and family parlor and, in 1889, put the first White House Christmas tree here. The Lincoln Bedroom: The Lincoln Bedroom is a bedroom on the second floor of the White House, part of a suite of rooms that includes the Lincoln Sitting Room and Lincoln Bath. Named for Abraham Lincoln and used by him as an office. The room is best known as a guest room used by presidents to reward friends and political supporters. When Abraham Lincoln was president, the southeast corner suite was used as his personal office and Cabinet room. During the Lincoln presidency, the walls were covered with Civil War maps.

These exceptional collectibles and gifts are handcrafted in the USA and exclusively available only from the White House Gift Shop, Est. 1946.

1991 White House Ornament

THE WHITE HOUSE ON THE EVE OF THE TURN OF A CENTURY, 1899, the design of which was influenced by the art of Norway during the European art period as seen by the point and angle-of-view as well as through the arrangement of the procession of carriages and people.

The 1991 White House ornament was first placed on the Christmas tree in the White House by a member of the Uniformed Division of Secret Service and is now a treasured heirloom, worldwide, by collectors and traders who value the historical and often artistically referential nuances of the White House Gift Shop’s official annual ornaments as well as the beauty of this collection with all ornaments featuring: complete 24KT gold finishing, elegantly one color at a time baked enamels, individually crafted by American hands (these are not mass production pieces), historical information cards, and dated by year to mark the passage of the seasons and times of your life and family, and exquisitely made, always, only by our master ornament artists and official makers in Rhode Island, USA.

Jefferson Bust & Statue
The President Jefferson bust from the White House Gift Shop, Est. 1946 is the same Jefferson bust that we provided as essential set pieces for top-rated and acclaimed television dramas such as House of Cards, Madame Secretary, State of Affairs, Scandal and major films including The Butler.

The Thomas Jefferson statue is a museum-class bust with exceptional presence. Our Jefferson and other statues are used for sets in many film and television series as well as in government buildings and Federalist style homes and legal offices. President Jefferson served as vice-president to John Adams and was later elected president, serving two consecutive terms (1801-1809). He founded the University of Virginia, which he also designed architecturally. After his retirement at Monticello, Jefferson became a living legend, a sage, whose advice and company were sought after by the best minds of two continents. When he died, on July 4th, 1826, 50 years to the day after the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, the country knew it had lost a monumental figure.

Ships in a substantially padded and protective box nearly four-feet long. Perhaps of interest for your collection and display of the President Jefferson bust is that one of our director's ancestors includes Anthony (Antonio) Giannini -- a master gardener and viniculturist who came to Virginia in 1773, served in the Virginia Militia, and worked by request of Thomas Jefferson at Monticello collecting seeds for Jefferson's friends in France, planting grape vines in the vineyard, caring for the North Orchard's apples trees and the South Orchard's apricots, almonds, apples, cherries, and peaches, planting grape vines from Legaux in the Southwest Vineyard, and grafting in the Monticello orchards. Jefferson granted Giannini status as a "Freeman" after five years of indentured service at Monticello. Eventually, Antonio Giannini purchased a tract of land from Jefferson. Several letters between Jefferson and Giannini survive. The life of Antonio Giannini and his family in Virginia became the inspiration for two now iconic television series: THE WALTONS and FALCON CREST. We thought you would enjoy this little-known back-story that provides historical context and meaning for the collection, display, or gift giving of your Thomas Jefferson bust.

There is another oval room above the Blue Room. This is called the Yellow Oval Room and is often used for formal private receptions for important guests.

In 1851, Abigail Fillmore got an allocation from Congress for books to make the room into the first White House library. The Harrison Family continued to use the room as a library and family parlor and, in 1889, put the first White House Christmas tree here. Franklin D Roosevelt converted the room into his study, and it was in this room on December 7, 1941, that he learned of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Franklin D. Roosevelt 9" Bust

President Roosevelt Bust from the White House Gift Shop: Jo Davidson was commissioned to create this bust of America's thirty-second president, the only American president to serve more than two terms. Franklin Delano Roosevelt entered the White House in 1933 and immediately tried to tackle the Great Depression. He introduced several new programs to help Americans when they needed it most. He was also president during World War II and, after a long, bloody, and costly war, he led the country to victory. He was, and still is, known for his memorable speeches and fireside chats. He told us "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself!"
Eleanor Roosevelt 13" Bust
Eleanor Roosevelt, the wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, was a distinguished public figure in her own right. She served as first lady from 1933-1945, supporting the New Deal policies of her husband, as well as being a strong advocate for civil rights and human welfare. Much of her life was spent in service to others, from working as a social worker in the East Side slums of New York at age seventeen, to chairing the United Nations committee responsible for getting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights drafted and approved. At her memorial service, Adlai Stevenson said of her, “What other single human being has touched and transformed the existence of so many?”

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT

Designed by architect Cass Gilbert (Gilbert's last major project; he died before the completion). The Supreme Court is four stories (92 ft.) above ground. The cornerstone was laid on October 13, 1932, and construction completed in 1935. It is located in Washington, D.C. at 1 First Street, NE, on the block immediately east of the United States Capitol. The Supreme Court Building has a neoclassical style and design.

The west facade of the building (the side which faces the Capitol) bears the motto "Equal Justice Under Law," while the east facade bears the motto "Justice, the Guardian of Liberty." It wasn’t until May 4, 1987, that the Supreme Court Building was designated a National Historic Landmark.
