The Joy of French Style Furniture

The problem – you love French style furniture but feel that your home is not ideally suited to that style, or you don’t know how to incorporate it without it looking out of place;

The solutionChichi Furniture would like to show some ideas as to how you can include some French flair in your homes without changing the dynamic of your style.

The joy of French style is that it covers a multitude of possibilities, from ornate and flamboyant, to rustic and homely, subtle chic and stylish contemporary. You can add a feature French style piece in your room to give it that something special, or you could go all out and design the entire room in a matching suite;

Your bedroom may be large and airy and would support ornate, heavily carved pieces that will fill the room with such style, or your room may be smaller or already furnished but have that vacant corner that is crying out for a French style dressing table to add a touch of chic in a subtle way.


How about you just simply add a dressing screen/room divide or an elaborate mirror to your space – an instant transformation without being too obvious!

You may lean towards a more country farmhouse look, with rustic pieces adding warmth and texture, or you could go all out glamour with golds and silvers.

If your decor is slightly more elaborate, how about having chic black pieces to hold a strong presence against a patterned wallpaper. Maybe your scheme is a pale pallette and just needs a pop of colour that can then be carried through the design with accessories! Adding pieces that are simplistic in style but delicately edged in gold can really add some understated glamour.

Your lounge may be fully furnished but it doesn’t feel inviting and complete – you may find that adding a feature chair in a prime position upholstered in fabric that matches the curtains/cushions, will just bring the whole look together.


Whatever the look and style of your home, have fun finding that perfect piece to bring a touch of French Chic to your home.
