Mrs. White in the Conservatory with the Candlestick

In the late 19th century conservatories were popping up all over England and France. These types of structures made of wrought iron and glass were chic extensions of the home where natural light could stream in.
Here is a mix of vintage and modern conservatories for your viewing pleasure…

Tabletop conservatory $99 from Smith & Hawken.

Late 19th century French Conservatory Chair $650 from R. Jorgensen antiques in Wells, Maine.
