Three stuccoed brick columns and two engaged ones which supported the portico were joined by a low wall. The columns were red up to the height of the low wall, white above. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.25)
According to CTP, this house suffered badly from the earthquake of 1980, so many of its earlier features have been lost. See Van der Poel, H. B., 1986. Corpus Topographicum Pompeianum, Part IIIA. Austin: University of Texas. (p.4)

According to Jashemski, the triclinium built against the west wall had a circular table. There were four niches in the inside of each couch. 
In the south couch, the last niche, which was of larger size, was separated from the other three by the mouth of the cistern. 
Along the north wall there was a small masonry podium which was reached by steps.   Opposite the lectus summus was a round tufa altar.

I.2.28 Pompeii. 1931. Looking west towards triclinium. See Warscher T., 1935. Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.2. (no.54), Rome: DAIR, whose copyright it remains.
(According to Warscher, No.54, Triclinio nella parte occidentale del pseudo-peristilio (h). 
La negative appartiene all’Istituto Arch. Germ. 1931; 2853.) Warscher wrote, quoting Bull. Inst.1874, p.251/52, that – “Il triclinio murato sta appoggiato al muro occidentale del peristilio, dimodochè verso la sera non vi poteva arrivare il sole, e, come quei ritrovati prima, è più alto verso la tavola, il cui posto è segnato da un sostegno rotondo, ove senza dubbio mettevasi la tavola di legno colle vivande. Più lungo degli altri è il letto a sinistra di chi sta avanti al triclinio, perchè a tavola si appoggiavano sul braccio sinistro, stendendo a destra la parte inferiore del corpo. Precisamente lo stesso si osserva nel triclinio della casa di Sallustio. Dalla parte interna di ciascuno dei letti sono quattro piccole nicchie, alte m. 0,24, larghe 0,19, profondo 0,20, più grande l’ultima del letto più lungo, separata dalle altre da una apertura del pozzo. Al triclinio si accedeva per un scalino alla estremità del letto settentrionale, dimodochè per arrivare al suo posto ciascuno doveva passare dietro ai posti degli altri. Ecco le misure del triclinio: letto meridionale, lunghezza esterna m.3,75, interna 2,35, larghezza 1,30; lunghezza interna del letto occidentale 1,37; letto settentrionale, lunghezza interna 1,30, esterna circa 2,50, larghezza 1,50. –
Aggiungo ancora che accanto allo scalino è un piccolo rialzo di materiale, che poteva servire di tavola, e che accanto all’estremità del letto più lungo sta un’ara fi tuffo, tonda, più grossa nella parte inferiore, con margine sporgente di sopra e di sotto, - finalmente che nel sostegno della tavola dalla parte di S si è fatto una specie di taglio verticale e piuttosto profondo, che non arriva fino alla superficie e di cui non ho saputo indovinare lo scopo”.

According to Warscher –

“Il triclinio occupa la parte occidentale del pseudoperistilio.

Si vedono quattro buchi rettangolari che illuminavo il sotterraneo; l’ingresso a questo ultimo è dalla stanza adiacente – a sinistra nella fotografia no.54 (stanza “L”).

(translation: "The triclinium occupied the western part of pseudoperistyle.  There are four rectangular holes which lit the underground area; the entrance to this last was from the adjacent room – left in photo No. 54 ("L")”.

 

Warscher wrote, quoting Bull. Inst.1874, p.251/52, that –

“Il triclinio murato sta appoggiato al muro occidentale del peristilio, dimodochè verso la sera non vi poteva arrivare il sole, e, come quei ritrovati prima, è più alto verso la tavola, il cui posto è segnato da un sostegno rotondo, ove senza dubbio mettevasi la tavola di legno colle vivande.

Più lungo degli altri è il letto a sinistra di chi sta avanti al triclinio, perchè a tavola si appoggiavano sul braccio sinistro, stendendo a destra la parte inferiore del corpo.

Precisamente lo stesso si osserva nel triclinio della casa di Sallustio.

Dalla parte interna di ciascuno dei letti sono quattro piccole nicchie, alte m. 0,24, larghe 0,19, profondo 0,20, più grande l’ultima del letto più lungo, separata dalle altre da una apertura del pozzo.

Al triclinio si accedeva per un scalino alla estremità del letto settentrionale, dimodochè per arrivare al suo posto ciascuno doveva passare dietro ai posti degli altri.

Ecco le misure del triclinio: letto meridionale, lunghezza esterna m.3,75, interna 2,35, larghezza 1,30; lunghezza interna del letto occidentale 1,37; letto settentrionale, lunghezza interna 1,30, esterna circa 2,50, larghezza 1,50. –

Aggiungo ancora che accanto allo scalino è un piccolo rialzo di materiale, che poteva servire di tavola, e che accanto all’estremità del letto più lungo sta un’ara di tuffo, tonda, più grossa nella parte inferiore, con margine sporgente di sopra e di sotto, - finalmente che nel sostegno della tavola dalla parte di S si è fatto una specie di taglio verticale e piuttosto profondo, che non arriva fino alla superficie e di cui non ho saputo indovinare lo scopo”.

 

(translation: "The masonry triclinium was leaning against the western wall of the peristyle, so towards the evenings the sun would not reach it, and, like those found before, it was higher towards the table, whose place was marked by a round support, where without doubt the wooden table with foods was placed.

Longer than others was the couch on the left, which is next to the triclinium, because one ate at table supported on the left arm, extending to the right the lower part of the body.

Precisely the same can be observed in the triclinium of the House of Sallust.

From the internal part of each of the couches are four small niches, m. 0,24 tall, 0,19 wide, 0.20 deep, the largest the last in the longest bed, separated from the others by the opening of the well.

The triclinium was entered by a step at the end of the north bed, so to get to his place each would have had to pass behind the places of the others.

Here are the measurements of the triclinium: southern bed, external length 3,75 m, 2,35 internal, 1,30 width; internal length of western bed 1,37; northern bed, inside length, 1,30, outside about 2,50, width 1.50. –

I add that nearby to the step was a small rise of material, which could serve for the table, and next to the end of the longest bed was a tufa round altar, largest at the bottom, with projecting edge above and below, finally that in the support of the table from the south was a kind of vertical cut and rather deep, that doesn't come up to the surface and for what use,  I could not make a guess.”).
