The quarto de reixa is the name commonly given to the drawing room, with a window that looks onto the street. This is the only room in the house that still retains its original decorand furniturein situ

The plasterwork and ceiling paintings are the original ones. The flooring is a reproduction of the original hydraulic tiles from Casa Escofet, Tejera i Cia., in Barcelona. 

The furniture is by the prestigious local joiner Pere Sabater. Made in 1888 from jacaranda wood, it reflects the upholstery fashion of the time. The door and window curtains are original and match the furniture upholstery. 

The room exhibits paintings by artists such as Teresa Romero, Alexandre de Riquer, Melcior Domenge, Josep Ros i Coll and Tomàs Viver, among others.

The entrance hall features works by Pere Viver and the maquette of Casa Alegre for visually impaired persons.
