The “Dawn and Twilight Bed” made by Emile Galle in 1904. Rosewood, ebony, mother of pearl, and glass. From Art Nouveau Style:

The bed symbolizes dusk, dawn and life. Dusk is a butterfly at the headboard with a landscape of night. Dawn is a butterfly at the foot of the bed, illustrating the renewal of the day. The crystal part of Dawn is said to represent life as a “cosmogenic egg”.
