About Syon House » The Print Room
The Print Room marks a departure from the Robert Adam rooms. Originally the room was covered in over 100 prints with borders, which had been collected by 1st Duchess during her travels on the Continent. After the prints were removed, portraits of many of the people who made the history of Syon were hung in this room. The portraits span the 16th,17th and 18th centuries telling a story from the time of Lord Protector Somerset who built the house in the late 1540s, to the Percy link with North America and the War of Independence. The Print Room is also highlighted by important pieces of furniture from the 17th century and a secretaire and desk with tortoiseshell and brass inlay, designed by Andre Charles Boule.
