Marie-Antoinette's Personal Taste

This glamorous sofa is just one of the items on display at the San Francisco Legion of Honor's Marie-Antoinette and the Petit Trianon at Versailles exhibit. It was a piece in a suite created for the queen's private study. More details on this and other pieces here. The exhibit runs through February 17, 2008. I'll be going just before the exhibit closes when I visit San Francisco the 6th through 11th of February so stay tuned for a full report.

Speaking of things Francophilic, I stopped over in Paris for four days on my way to London and among other things had afternoon tea at Laduree. Gilt, cherubs, and cake, oh my! --Kim
