VDP hors les murs : le lit aux motifs persans

XVIIIth century Toile de Jouy bed
Now that's a lovely little bed says VDP. It has a 'Persian' (i.e. Oriental) motif! VDP loved the details!

I LOVE the Persian motif.

That's certainly a different bed, I love the little stories on the fabric...

Now that I really like! ;-)

I'm always amazed to see how short people were back in the day and how impossibly small their beds looked.

Kate said...

It is quite an elaborate bed; have to smile when I consider how my children would have "managed" that bed!

Randy said...

Interesting.

Nothing at all like my bed.

Cosy looking bed, not sure about the perspex that surrounds it though ;-)

Sympa, mais trop petit pour mon metre 88...

The fabric is wonderful!

I dunno...canopy beds always give me the heebie-jeebies. It looks like a giant spider which is going to spawn lots of little spiders while I'm sleeping.

Lovely, though! :)

Wonderful motifs, but I wouldn't even try a bed like that!

I'm surprised the fabric is Persian. It looks like something from much further east than that.

Jack said...

Charming. Though the bed looks kind of small.

Kay said...

You caught the fabric detail very nicely. It looks like a small but elaborate sleeping arrangement. I think I prefer my own snug bed.

Très amusants les détails, une belle alternative à compter les moutons pour s'endormir.
