French Restauration Lit de Repos


A late Charles X transitional to Louis Philippe period plum pudding mahogany framed provincial, metamorphic lit de repos; folding down at one end to become a recamier. As shown in Image 3, the length increases to 74.5" when down and open as a recamier or day bed. A remarkably unusual yet comfortable, period antique form.
