The 1st class Reception Room
At the fifth level of the Grand Staircase, the Reception Room was a masterpiece of itself. Many passengers remembered eating there for any meal. It was also nice just to sit there and talk with the brightly lit room and white paneling. The wicker chairs with soft velvet padding. The Grand Staircase was the centerpiece with elegant oak railings, intricate balustrades, a wonderful painting at the landing, and a gigantic gold candle-holder. The windows were beautiful with blue stain around the beautiful windows. There was beautiful carpet as well. When the TITANIC sank, the room simply filled with water. However, the Grand Staircase and all five flights are missing. Almost everything recognizable to being the Reception Room is nearly gone. However, there are hints of white on some columns and window panes still intact.
