This cushion was inspired by the fabric in the Versailles Palace. The sumptuous drapes in the Queen’s Bedchamber are known as “summer furniture”, as they were installed from spring to autumn.
Known as “gros de Tours”, a heavy taffeta decorated with a cloud of flowers, ribbons and peacock feathers, also known as “The Queen’s Brocade”. The original fabric was woven in Lyon by Desfarges Brothers. It was dispersed after the Revolution and was re-woven in the 20th Century by Maison Lamy & Gautier, again in Lyon.
