French furniture is opulent, charming, graceful, beautiful, sumptuous and luxurious, but above all, it’s timeless. This is something that can’t be said about any other furniture style. Interior trends come and go. What was fashionable in the 1930s was out of fashion in the 1960s. And what was trendy in the 70’s is dated and old in current times. The key not to go out of fashion is not use any trends and stick to ageless charm. And the safest way to achieve that is doing it the French way!
The French have always had an innate ability to create beauty, and they’ve always loved to surround themselves with beautiful possessions and live in stunning homes. The furniture and home accessories they’ve gifted the world with through the centuries proves this statement.
From Renaissance style to Art deco, French furniture has always been avantgarde, adored and desired. The French have always stamped their creations with timeless elegance. A Baroque mirror, a Rococo bed or a Neo-classical armoire are just as beautiful and wanted today as they were centuries ago.
How have they achieved something like this? Throughout the history French furniture designers have created art. If instead of designing a dressing table, you design a work of art in the form of a dressing table, you ensure your interior design will survive for centuries.
In France creating furniture has always been a decorative art, not an industry. This concept has ensured that in the 21st century furniture lovers know about Louis XV chairs, Rococo mirrors and Baroque armoires. The French didn’t create furniture, they created art that would pass the test of time. The ageless beauty, the graceful designs, and the beautiful designs of French furniture are a perfect choice for our modern homes.
