The small but very colourful Privy Chamber of Ahmet III (III. Ahmet Has Odası) built in 1705 with walls adorned with panels of floral designs and fruit compositions painted in the Edirnekâri technique (named after the city of Edirne, known as the homeland of the best wood-painting artists) was therefore also known as the Fruit Room (Yemiş Odası) and probably used for dining purposes by the Sultans. The shaded colouring seen on these ornaments drawn in miniature technique reflects a then new painting style emerged under the influence of Western painting art. The room is covered with a vaulted and ornamented wooden ceiling, and features also a small fireplace decorated with intricate tiles situated between the windows.
