Lit à la Turque, ca 1750 - 1760, Jean - Baptiste Tilliard.
.
18th century craftsmen in France were fascinated by anything exotic and unusual from countries such as China, Turkey, and Egypt. They drew inspiration from such places to impart an extraordinary kind of opulence through their handiwork. This grand bed has wheels so the servants back then could pull out the body of the bed easily whilst they made it up.

Lit À La Polonaise (Bed in the Polish Style), ca 1775, Unknown Maker.
.
.
A popular variety of bed amongst the rich in France during the late 18th century. Its origins were Polish as a similar bed with draped fabric hanging from a coronet was seen in the Royal Castle in Warsaw and the style caught on. The French version had columns curving inward which were hidden by drapery. Extravagant upholstery, passementerie (fringes, cords, and tassels), and hangings complete the look of this elegant bed.
