A-Z French Style, Shabby Chic Furniture from Chichi
Good morning. Its worked perfectly that today is Friday and today our letter is ‘F’. So its Friday Floral Features all the way!
French style furniture is known for its elaborate, ornate style and often this means items are beautifully adorned with floral carved detailing. Floral features lend themselves beautifully to entwining up furniture legs and blossoming into a central flower at the top of a large unit. It adds that certain something to allow it to stand apart from other pieces that may be more functional than fashionable (two more ‘F’s!!)
Below are some gorgeous floral examples from Chichi’s range, starting with the elaborate styles;
This silver console and mirror would look amazing in a large entrance hall – a dazzling example of opulence and grandeur.
The black upholstered chair is framed by floral carvings, creating a stunning central feature for a room, or also an ideal item for a larger space where less decorative furniture would be lost.
Finally the Gold Chest of Drawers – finished in stylish Gold Leaf, the floral carvings on this piece just complete the look emphasizing its beautiful elegant shape.
Next up we have two painted bedside units with beautiful painted floral detail. These items are less ornate, but hold just as much of a presence in a room, but are softer and less bold.
I love these two units – they would look perfect in a modern, country cottage style room, or even in a hallway as a stylish feature to hide away post/keys and place a vase of flowers on.
They are the epitome of simplistic elegance, no fuss, just delicately curved legs and top, finished in white with beautiful painted detail. These charming units would befitting to small or large spaces, they have enough detail to stand out, but are not over the top to look too cumbersome in a smaller bedroom.
Finally we have a stunning floral upholstered chair. This detail gives the chair an extra lift, ensuring it stands out in an understated way without blending into the background. The all black seat, accentuates the black leaf detail on the back panels, with the paler background flowers and colour softening and blending the design together. A chic piece for any home.
Well, I hope you enjoyed the letter F – have a happy Friday, love Chichi.
