I think this photo of a daybed is inside Versailles? I like it but it I think the mirrors are too large for our set because it would show the camera’s and lights.
This photo shows the beginning of the Paris Apartment daybed. The plaster men are adding the crown moldings. They already have one layer of paint and will be glazed and aged later. In the next several photos I will show you the progress of the daybed and some inspiration photos.
This is the Jamie & Claire Paris Apartment daybed. As you can tell I like doing built-in beds and daybeds. We have had them in black Jack Randall’s sleeping quarters, Inn’s and assorted other sets. The reason is they really did use them a lot in the 18th century and I like the way it looks and it is an elegant piece of built in furniture that can add a lot to the set. I can see the way Actors and crew respond to them.
This one was built so that Claire could be sitting in the daybed at parties in their apartment and look out toward her guest. The back had a wide panel that swung out so that a camera could be placed there to shoot over claire to the rest of the apartment.
That’s the last image for the Star Chamber…
This is Claire being forced by King Louis to judge the two men.
The camera men were up at the top looking down thru the dome to actors below.
