The West Room was added for Senator Johnson as his office in 1958. Lady Bird Johnson has filled one corner of the room with mementos acquired during Lyndon Johnson's long political career. The saddle was a gift from Mexican president Diaz Ordaz; the small bronze horses on a side table were presented by Armand Hammer during a visit to the ranch. On the sofa are needlepoint pillows made for Mrs. Johnson by friends.
