It is rare to see an interior photograph with the lights on.  Many thanks Bryndis and Judicialinvestigator.

I am not sure where to post this question:

Is it possible to get more information on the French firm that is weaving the mauve lampas silk for the walls of the mauve room?

And is it possible to order a piece of the silk fabric from the firm (though I do recall Bob saying it costs like $600.00 per meter...) ?

The firm name is here somewhere in the thread, you can search for it as I can't recall it off hand. They are still in business. They don't make it currently, it would be a special commission they can reproduce. 20 years ago it was about $600 a meter! We don't know if the original firm is making the fabric for the current restoration or if the Museum has another source.

The manufacturer was "Charles Berger" in Paris.  I found my notes. The cost last time it was requested was $1000 per meter, and that was some fifteen years ago now!
