Sajou Cross Stitch Kit: Trianon Bedchamber

Large cushion to sew in cross stitch inspired by the fabric of the Petit Trianon Queen's Bedchamber. The Petit Trianon was the designated estate of Marie-Antoinette. She created a bucolic setting, full of charm and simplicity. This is an evocation of the fabric in the Queen’s bedchamber: rose bouquets and cornflowers on a white fabric. The original fabric was embroidered by Marie-Olivier Defarges, from Lyon. This marvellous cloth covers the famous “wheat-ear furniture”, created by Georges Jacob: the wood is sculpted and painted with wheat ears braided with honeysuckle and sprigs of jasmin, embellished with lily-of-the-valley and pine cones. After being dispersed during the Revolution, part of this unique furniture has since been acquired ­by the Palace of Versailles.
This chart is taken from our spectacular pattern dedicated to Marie-Antoinette. The two embroideries depicting the Versailles Palace and Marie-Antoinette are the sixth in the “Museums and Heritage” collection.
