Bedroom Furnishings

The romance of a house centers on beds. In Tuscany, when a couple marries, the purchase of the matrimoniale, the large bed meant to last a lifetime, is the most important and pressing choice for the new home. The ancient art of ferro battuto, beaten iron, was much practised on these beds. The curlier the iron—the better. The Florentine Ring Bed was inspired by all the brides in Florence.
