French Country Furniture, Lighting & Home Decor
Provençale PerfectionFrench Country style creates the perfect balance of refined, old-world style and rustic, relaxed attitude. Often referred to as Provençale or from the French region of Provence, this classic approach is loved - and lived - throughout the world.
Nature's PaletteTaking cues from the blazing gold of sunflower fields, the red of rooster’s feathers, and the soothing tranquility of neutrals, the French Country color story is one of earth, flowers and stone.
Textural Effects & ContrastsLike sound and silence, contrast in textures and finishes create a beautiful effect. Formal old-world carpentry or upholstery played against raw textures of wood or stone creates the perfect amount of visual friction – letting the beauty of both glossy and rough be celebrated together.
Natural BeautyFrench style should always feel and looks effortless. Natural elements and the ease they convey are essential to any French Country room: cane woven headboards or dining chairs, large baskets, exposed wood beams, natural stone floors, and natural fibers in traditional motifs (see French Lessons below) are all great choices.
Store in StyleClutter happens. Thankfully the French understand this and use generously proportioned armoires, buffets and consoles to control it. French Country style storage can easily be modified or bought with contemporary space saving features on the inside (shelving, wire/cord cutouts) while the outside evokes old world kitchens.
French LessonsSome say the secret to mastering French is to get the accent. The same might be said of French Country style: the accents make all the difference. Decorative pieces featuring fleur de lis, sunflowers, roosters, toile linens and antique culinary/apothecary-style ceramics create a distinct authenticity.
