A French Bed for 1816

Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Loretta reports:

Some of the magazine descriptions of clothing, houses, and furnishings are as charming and interesting as the items themselves.  This bed is a great example.  It strikes me as delightfully fanciful, and I like the way it's described as a balance between English and French taste.  I also like the options of decorating with more "chasteness" or more "gaiety."
