Following French fashion, Dutch furniture makers began making various sorts of canopy beds in the 18th century. This type was known as a lit à la française, even though the proportions do not entirely agree. An important feature is that the canopy had to be hung from the ceiling. The bed probably belonged to the De la Court family and came from Onsenoort mansion in Nieuwkuijk.
