ANCIENT EGYPTIAN FURNISHINGS: typical furniture items __most chairs/stools tended to be lower than today's standards and some were intended for someone to sit "indian style" rather than the way we sit in chairs today (typically). Beds were also low to the ground--like a platform bed. Furniture was simple and embellished according to social status/money.
A large steamer trunk acts a footboard and also repeats the gold hue found on the screen at the head of the bed. The bedding is kept clean white to balance out the ornate details. Designer Emily Henderson
