Designed for the Earl of Coventry by Robert Adam, the room features walls lined with tapestries and similar-looking upholstery. A novel aspect is the continuous tapestry on all four walls, in effect a pictorial wall covering rather than a framed, painting-like tapestry. The scenes in the cartouches were designed by Boucher; the tapestries woven in Jacques Nielson's atelier at Gobelins. "Aux alentours" (with borders) refers to the production technique, whereby a detailed scene was fit into a plainer, more quickly executed surrounding.

Visitors look around one of the rooms that has been reopened to the public at the Louvre museum in Paris, Tuesday June 17, 2014. Paid for entirely by private patronage, the 9-year works have seen the creaky halls restored, corridors modernized and new rooms constructed to fit over 2,000 design objects that span the reigns of the most lavish kings of Europe. They start with France’s Louis XIV who actually lived in the Louvre, to his successors Louis XV and Louis XVI.

An English Dressing Room, c. 1710-1730 at the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto - From the curators' comments: "This setting represents a room from an upper middle-class London town house....By this time, comfortable, upholstered furniture was becoming more common since more people could afford it. For example, easy (easie) chairs were found in bedrooms or private rooms, where people could rest."
