It was a small room furnished with steel chairs with red seats, a glass topped steel table and a divan covered with black American cloth.  Over the chromium-plated electric fireplace hung a reproduction of a Juan Gris still-life.  On the opposite wall was a faded brown photograph of Rosa Luxemburg in a rococo gilt frame.  The general effect was, to say the least of it, bizarre.
