    DescriptionThe bedroom is regarded by many as an intensely personal space in which to rest and relax and generally escape the pressures of the outside world. But this concept of the bedroom as a private sanctuary or refuge is relatively new; the room itself didn’t really exist for most people until the 1500s.
