WASHINGTON - President Obama's Oval Office has had a face-lift with a New York accent.
The office has undergone a top-to-bottom makeover, highlighted by handmade striped wallpaper from Amagansett in the Hamptons.
The President's brown leather desk chair, coffee table made of American walnut and mica, custom-made couches and two new table lamps with blue ceramic bases were all crafted by New York manufacturers.
The White House treated the identities of the Empire State companies who produced the furnishings like state secrets, declining to further identify them.
The price tag for the redo also was not disclosed, but interior design experts gave the Daily News a guesstimate of $20,000.

Cue up 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous'. Worst economy since the great depression and the Oval office gets a redo. His friends in NYC make a sale.
It's good to be the king!

Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I’m surprised it doesn’t look like an Arab tent.
The couches and coffee table, not so hot, but at least they can be replaced easily when B & M move on.
Just like The 0ne.
NY= a North Yemen feel to it.
Very true, if by "distinct NY accent" being decor that reminds one of the "Greeting Room" of an 1890's New York Bordello....
is that the Oval Office or the lobby of the Marriott Inn in Albuquerque?
Here's Clinton's (hope they threw that rug out - eew.)
I swear to you that I had that coffee table in the 50’s.
I guess so. If the voice of the Days Inn hotel lobby is from NY.
I think Kenneth R. Bazinet just insulted New York.
...or a New Orleans whore house.
