Hôtel de la Marine, Paris
The bedroom still has furniture used for receiving guests. For a long time, like the king, visitors were received in the bedroom, and the antechamber was used to keep them waiting or to meet less intimate visitors. This function is increasingly assigned to the salon, which did not exist previously. From now on, the functions will be spread over several rooms, such as the boudoirs.
