“Country French” furniture doesn’t refer to a period in French history but to a way of life. Drawing from many periods in French furniture design, particularly Louis XV, Louis XVI, Regence, Directoire and Louis Phillipe, country French furniture exemplifies relaxed sophisticated living. These designs are found in the country homes of France in Normandy, Provence and Bordeaux. You’ll find large farm tables with ladderback chairs, carved oak hutches, sideboards, and armoires all in various finishes.
Most of all, country French is a feeling. There are no right or wrong rules, as long as the mood exudes comfort and warmth. Country French is so well loved, its never goes out of style. Its furnishings endure today and will continue to charm for years to come.
