History of the Cajuns: Encyclopedia of Cajun Life
Furniture

   As in Acadia, the furniture consisted of only the necessities.  There was a table with benches or chairs.  The parents had a large wooden bed with a moss-filled mattress.  In some cases there were beds for the children, though often mats were placed on the floor.  There was an armoire and/or trunk for clothes.  There was a cabinet for storing food and utensils.
