The Security Council Chamber is known as the Norwegian Room. The chamber was designed by Arnstein Arneberg of Norway and was completed in September 1952.The walls of the Council Chamber are in marble. The doors are set with inlay ash with a torch and a sword as the motif. The blue and gold tapestry made of the same silk material and the chairs of the delegates and Secretariat were all donated by Norway after WWII....The mural, in oil on canvas, was painted by the Norwegian artist Per Krohg. As seen on all photographs from the Council Meetings, the mural symbolizes a future of peace obtained through man's efforts and the efforts of the UN.The grey carpet came from the United Kingdom.
