My favorite room is the basketball court, which is located outside next to the White House. The basketball court is used for special purposes, like a place for Barack Obama or his family to cool off or a place for Obama to hold games for wounded warriors. Some objects that are in the room are the hoop and the basketball.
The Red Room is one of four state reception rooms in the White House.The room has several pieces of furniture from the New York workshop of a famous French-born cabinetmaker Charles-Honore Lannuier. The furniture was composed in 1810-1830.All of the fabric in the room was woven in the United States from French empire designs.
