Majestic French Salon with Day Bed - Large scale - By Louis Badeuille
This antique dollhouse furniture is so Majestic. In the 18th century, the French upper class commonly used a day bed in the reception room. The day bed was arranged with the intention of giving an impression of splendor, power and magnificence. During the reign of King Louis XIV, the main furniture of splendor was the bed and the armchair.
First of all, your eyes are looking to the canopy bed with is marvelous gold crown on top from where a delicate lace is going down. An oval mirror and a lot of gilt paper designs make this bed so exceptional.

The shaped rectangular pedestal table has a large gilt paper trim border. The center and the four corners of the table top are decorated with gilt paper simulating lace. The original silk carpet is included.
