A-Z French Style, Shabby Chic Furniture from Chichi

‘O’ is for Opulent!!

There’s a lot of truth in the old saying ‘Every mans home is his Castle’. Filling our homes with treasures and creating a haven in which we can indulge, wind down, entertain – is so important, everyone needs there own sanctuary, be it a room or a house.

We may not actually own a castle (to be honest I wouldn’t want too – far too draughty and cold for me!! and who would clean it!!), but thats not to say we can’t furnish our spaces with opulent, stylish artisan pieces – a touch of gold or silver can add such warmth and style to a home. If you have a large home with high ceilings and elaborate cornicing, then you want furniture that will compliment the design, hold a presence and not look too small and out of place. On the flip side, if you have a smaller space, why not go for beautiful pieces edged in gold, or an all gold/silver piece but with slightly less detail so it doesn’t overfill the space and look awkward, but instead becomes a strong feature.  French style furniture is ideal, its beautifully shaped, with as much or as little detail as you want, our Rococo range reflects the highly decorative pieces from that era, pieces that will fill a room with their presence, whereas our Bordeau style is still beautifully shaped but less elaborate – still oozing French charm but more understated for that room edging towards a more subtle style.

Mirrors too, can be a great way of adding a touch of opulence without cramming too much into a room.
