The Aubusson region was the leading manufacturer of fine tapestries since their emergence in the 14th century, with an impressive repertoire that made them the first choice among 18th-century French nobility. Because they favored a certain degree of harmony in their décor, a room whose walls were hung with classically-inspired tapestries would naturally be paired with furnishings bearing similar woven motifs. The late 19th century witnessed a great revival of these early Aubusson furnishings amongst the elite. This suite is a particularly fine example of the Louis XV style, exhibiting the highest quality craftsmanship in all respects.
