Breton box bed:Brittany is famous for its lit-clos (enclosed bed) tradition. Its box beds often have beautiful, intricate carving on the doors, and are sometimes one above the other in a double-decker, two-storey arrangement. The two pictured both come from Finistère, the north-western tip of France. The right-hand one has a linen chest serving as a step up.

In homes with usually only one room, the box-bed allowed some privacy and helped keep people warm during winter. It was the main furniture of rural houses in Brittany until the 20th century.

"Breton tradition of fine, substantial, and wonderfully carved box beds (lits clos or enclosed beds). At the time I didn’t know about another, more recent, tradition from about 100 years ago: pictures of comic scenes staged around Britanny’s most famous furniture. The double-decker beds (double lit clos, lit à l’étage etc.) are doubly amusing with the right humorous caption. There are straightforward photographs too, showing off traditional Breton folk costumes as well as the beds."
