  • This photograph of the Family Dining Room was taken by Matthew D'Agostino in 2016, during the Barack Obama administration. The Family Dining Room is located on the State Floor of the White House. During their residence in the Executive Mansion, the Obamas oversaw the 2015 refurbishing of the dining room, incorporating modern art and design into the room. Among the selected pieces of work are the paintings "Early Bloomer [Anagram (a Pun)]" by Robert Rauschenberg on the west wall and "Resurrection" by Alma Thomas on the north wall. The wool rug was adapted from a pictorial weaving called "Black, White, and Gray" by Anni Albers.

  • These French porcelain service pieces, shown here on display in a bookcase in the White House Family Dining Room, were made by Tressemannes and Vogt of Limoges, France, in 1892. They are part of a state china service that President Benjamin Harrison first ordered for the White House. The service featured a dark blue border, corn and goldenrod decorations, 44 gold stars representing the number of states in the Union when Harrison purchased the china and a design similar to the one found on the Lincoln china, with an eagle standing atop a shield, combining similar elements as the iconography from the Great Seal and the Seal of the President.
