can help you to achieve a feminine, stylish look. French antique furniture incorporates timeless designs
and elaborate decorative elements that can help to make your home unique. If you’re wondering how to
incorporate this style of furniture into your home, keep reading.
Keep it simple
If you’re new to French furniture, don’t be tempted to fill your entire home with elaborate pieces.
Depending on whether you’re looking for a more traditional or contemporary style, it’s best to keep things
simple. Add just one or two pieces to each room – a focal point such as a decorative French armoire or side
table can really bring a room to life. If you’re unsure whether this style is for you, you can even avoid larger
pieces of furniture and opt for mirrors and other home accessories to see whether the antique French style
is one you want to incorporate throughout your home.
A great way to include this style of furniture in your home is to opt for a sofa, chaise longue or even
a pouffe – this creates a focal point in your living room, and it’s up to you whether you then want to
add more decorative French style pieces or keep things simple with sleek, traditional or contemporary
furniture. A French-style chaise longue is a great statement piece, but a hand carved French bench or rattan
sofa looks equally chic and may be more suitable for your home. Many modern pieces of French antique
style furniture are painted in light hues – white, mint green, pale blue or lilac; which means it’s easy to find
a piece of furniture which complements your existing décor and furnishings.
Matching ranges are designed to complement each other, making it easier than ever before for you to furnish
a whole room with French style furniture. Take the time to choose a range which complements the style of
your home – some more traditional pieces may look out of place in a 21st-century studio apartment, but could be
right at home in a quaint cottage or Victorian terraced house.French furniture can add a touch of chic to your home
and showcase your unique sense of style – it’s far more interesting and beautifully made than your average flat-pack
catalogue furniture. Start small and build your collection to ensure your home reflects your taste and personality.
