A Few of My Favorite French Things

I consider myself a sourcing fanatic. I am always on the lookout for fabulous finds for my clients (as well as myself!). I love the thrill of the hunt, whether it be at market, locally, online, just wherever. I thought you might enjoy a few shots of some of my favorite French products. If you're interested in anything you see, just let me know and I can give you prices and buying info.

The Louis chair above is perfection. It is covered in a soft pastel needlepoint design and would look great in the bedroom, living room, or bath by the tub if you have enough space. I personally would love one for my home office. So feminine and pretty.




I really love this reproduction Louis XVI bergere and ottoman. It is shipped in an off white duckcloth, which is great as-is or you can re-upholster in any fabric you wish. (We can help with that, too!) I own this set and it is amazingly comfortable. I have also used it in some client homes and they have all loved it. One client says she has her coffee in this chair every morning while reading her newspaper.


Another sweet little chair that coud be used just about anywhere, even maybe the foyer or entryway. It is handpainted with soft needlepoint cover.




This is a product that is hard to find: a Louis bar stool. Bar stools can be the one element that can ruin a pretty French-style interior. There are some reeeallly ugly versions out there for sure. The silver leaf finish is beautiful.







Here are a couple of my favorites. Headboard and bench in the Louis XVI style. Both are totally customizable in any fabric choice.








Here are two really sweet little nightstands with a light cream finish. I used two of these in my showhouse nursery last year.







A very pretty French settee which would look great mixed with about anything including Swedish.



I have sources for these and many, many more similar pieces. I love taking these and personalizing them for my clients with fabrics which complement their homes and personalities. I will post more great finds soon.

Ilove everything that you have... it is a little like walking in my front door... but I have looked everywhere for Louis inspired bar stools and I have had no luck... could you please help me find some. As I amin canada, they would need to be shipped.
