[George IV Mahogany Daybed, Circa 1830, Attributed to John Taylor.
West ~ East - The Niall Hobhouse Collection, Christie's.]
old review in the Journal of Design History, I'm even more anxious for my copy of Nada Chaldecott's book, Dhurries, to arrive. When it does, I'll share my own less erudite impressions. In the meantime, here's a terrific use of dhurrie as upholstery. Lends a relaxed feel to this stately early-19th-century piece from a 2008 Christie's sale.
I didn't buy the Hobhouse catalogue at the time of the sale, but I recently spotted it here.
