Solar is what the Tudors called their bedrooms. Beds were the most important furniture in the house because it showed how wealthy you were. Rich Tudor people had a Great Bed. The most famous Tudor bed is the Great Bed of Ware, on display at Victoria and Albert Museum in London (although right now on loan elsewhere). I built the bed for my house with this remarkable bed in mind.

In the top left picture you can also see a chest. If you have read about my Victorian house you may recognise it, but I have added metal hinges and decorations, all as described in a book about Tudor dollhouses.
