Whether your home is a tranquil space for relaxation and unwinding, or a place for sophisticated, elegant entertaining, the French style of interior design can be incorporated easily into your personal home style. To achieve this look successfully French style furniture should give the impression that it has lived—immersed in the tradition of culture and memory, enjoyed by generations.
The French look and it’s chosen pieces fit equally well in both a Chic cottage, gathering for afternoon tea, or in an Urban loft for a stunning dinner party. Try balancing a comfortably upholstered chair with a rustic wooden table, or a stately embellished chair with a simply carved table. The combination of informal and formal will create a relaxed, inviting atmosphere reminiscent of a stylish Parisian café. The overall feeling should reflect a classic, timeless style, welcoming you with its soothing colour theme and richly carved furnishings.
