Marie-Antoinette tapestries - Cushion

These roses and lilies, tied with a garland of cornflowers, are directly inspired by the embroidery of the bed in the Queen's bedroom.

In 1786, when Marie-Antoinette decided to renew her summer furnishings, that is to say, the decorative textiles of her royal bedroom, the Garde-Meuble asked Jean-François Bony, an embroiderer from Lyons, to produce embroideries for the bed and chairs to match the new wall hangings. The pattern includes the Queen's favourite flowers framing her monogram.

The designs by Bony, kept at Versailles, were used to reproduce the embroidery of the bed head in the Queen's bedroom, which was inaugurated in 1976 after being restored.
