King Charles Bedspread - Historic Charleston Foundation
The Historic Charleston Foundation was established in 1947 and is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve and protect the historical, architectural and material culture that make up Charleston's rich and irreplaceable heritage.
Steeped in historic Charleston's rich, classic style and decorative arts culture, the King Charles 100% cotton matelasse bedding collection offers the ultimate blend of European, Caribbean, and Asian influences. Reproduced from a 19th century example featuring a tufted design throughout and four motifs around the bottom edge: the sun, a topiary, a pheasant and a pineapple; origin England - circa 1820.
King Charles matelasse bedding offers a luxuriously soft bedspread, coverlet, bedskirt, shams and decorative accent pillows. Each individual piece is constructed on a special weaving loom to create the luxurious design. Highs and lows created during the jacquard weaving process allow the motifs and surrounding designs to come to life. Intricate details including rolling arches, half moons, double diamonds and scrolling vines come together to create this beautiful collection.
Coverlet and bedspread drape beautifully over the bed to reveal rounded corners. Pair the bedspread with bedskirt to create a complete look. Add coordinating, decorative shams and pillows to create the ultimate bedroom oasis. The heavy-weight, stonewashed matelasse of King Charles bedding ensures life-long durability and style for generations to come.
