"What I love about The French Bedroom Company is its unashamed femininity and the way the various pieces, such as the French upholstered beds, mirrors and chandeliers positively revel in their own glorious Marie Antoinette-ishness. They are also lifted out of the ordinary by a hint of quirkiness and originality that's reflected across the entire range of glamorous French beds and wooden bed frames." KATIE LAW, EVENING STANDARD
Marie Windsor, “the Queen of the B’s”, sultry femme fatale of film noir (The Killing, The Narrow Margin, The Sniper, etc.), photographed in 1956 "I didn’t know I was doing film noir. I thought I was doing detective stories with low lighting!"
Queen Victoria,1845. Photographs taken of the Queen at this time do not much resemble this glamorous image. Winterhalter was skilled at creating an enhanced likeness. He also obligingly enlarged the Queen's jewellery.
