An impressively well furnished room, with highly decorative floor tiles and partly glazed windows. There is a bench settle with pierced arms and carved panels, a raised cupboard or dressoir holding a silver jug and basin, and a box-framed chair. The bed is enclosed but has no posts. The canopy is suspended by rope from the ceiling.
