A view of the landing and banister by the stairs inside the eighteenth-century Georgian house at 20 Queen Square, Holborn, which was once occupied by the Chalfont House Settlement. Features on the banister include a Corinthian column post holding up the hand rail and other rails consisting of twisted wood and etched columns. On the walls and beyond the banister are wooden panels and patterned wallpaper with William Morris and Arts and Crafts style patterns. A carved plaster cornice borders the ceiling. At the end of the landing with its wooden floor is a set of double panelled doors with a door flanking it on either side of the landing. Hanging by the doors is a lamp on a decorated metal rod. Flat Corinthian columns are on either side of the doors. The house no longer exists; part of The President Hotel, Guildford Street, now sits on the site.
