Each hearing room has two sets of cherry wood doors, designed and created by Rich Wrigley of Holyoke, Massachusetts.

In the top panel is a bronze casting of the state seal.

The bronze medallion on the bottom panel is duplicated in marble in the center of the atrium floor. It resembles a motif used throughout the State Capitol.

The center panels depict symbols of Connecticut. They are created in marquetry, an ancient craft in which veneers are cut and pieced to form a picture.

The woods used in these panels include ebony, holly, rosewood, Australian walnut, anigre, and lacewood.
