French Country Furniture for Every Room in Your Home

French country furniture adds comfortable style to your home decorating whether you start with just chairs or an accent chest, or do an entire room. During pre-revolutionary times, style originated with the king. Entire workshops with the best artists were dedicated to creating and producing furniture and decorative arts for the royal family alone. Outside Paris and Versailles, furniture design was inspired by the court (especially Louis XV and Louis XVI), but it was more rustic and functional. It was usually made from local wood and had design motifs of local flora and fauna. Home decorating styles tended to lag behind what was fashionable in Paris in proportion to the distance, and tended to change more slowly. Each area of France had it's own style, Provençal, Brittany and Burgundian are probably most familiar to us. Original pieces are very difficult to find so we are fortunate that reproductions and modern interpretations of these pieces are available. The chests and chairs shown here are a good illustration of the quality and variety that's available. French country furniture--style that's still comfortable--interior decorating at it's best!
