What part of the room does the writer describe last?

I stepped into the room, stopped, and gazed at its splendor. The ceilings were extremely high and painted with golden and rose-colored cherubs. From the center of the ceiling dangled a brilliant crystal chandelier lit with hundreds of candles. The walls, covered in rich blue silk fabric, were hung with huge oil paintings in elaborately gilt frames. Ornate antique furniture was placed all around the rooms against the walls. And the floors! Soft oriental carpets in glowing blues and roses contrasted with the gleaming teakwood floors that bordered them.

The writer of your paragraph begins at the top of the room and works downward in observing and describing the magnificence of the room, with the overall effect being one of incredible beauty. The speaker's eyes start at the ceiling, with its painted decorations and fabulous candle-lit chandelier. They move downward to take in the walls, the luxurious wall coverings, and the decorations hung on them. The type and amount of furniture is observed and described. Lastly, the speaker observes the floor in the room, noting the beautiful finish on the high-quality of wood used and accented by the lovely and expensive oriental carpeting.
