Baeshen House Entryway

The old traditional style of seating in Jeddah was to line the walls with cushions.  Many times the cushions were put directly on the floor and sometimes they were elevated to be more like the couches that most of us are familiar with.  This photo shows the entryway of the Baeshen House in Al Balad of Jeddah.  The house is being preserved as an example of life in Jeddah long ago.
