I am not sure I want to sleep in Vincent van Gogh’s bed. But it’s a door now open to you, thanks to the Art Institute of Chicago, which has created a three-dimensional simulacrum of Van Gogh’s bedroom in Arles, as he painted it in some of his most moving works. The room can be rented through Airbnb, allowing up to two people the chance to sleep in style in this recreated room in Vincent’s Yellow House.
