Notes NOTES: This room, designed for Richard Mallock, incorporated a gigantic gramaphone horn of reinforced plaster and was decorated with a mirrored wall around a low fireplace with electric fire, black Wilton carpet, and chairs and sofa covered in yellow fabric designed by the decorator Arundell Clarke. The room was dismantled in the 1940s.
