At the top of the tree-lined basin, the gallery of the Papiers Peints Collectivité was on the right and the following on the left

The large gallery, 100 metres long and 16 metres wide, housed exhibitors of furniture and industrial and applied arts: goldsmiths, household art, musical instrument makers, copperworkers, glaziers, clockmakers, ironworkers and furniture makers. All the products of Belgian industry related to the decoration and equipment of homes were on display.

All this in a particularly attractive setting: decorated in bright blue and off-white, the interior of this gallery was very bright; a light decoration helped to maintain a cheerful atmosphere. The light bays in the walls were lined with translucent glass tiles from Val-Saint-Lambert, cutting off the view of the gardens, in order to focus visitors' attention on the products on display.

On the outside, a picture rail of inscriptions responded to the string of bright red flowers that enclosed the section.
