  • A new comfort

    Most beds are absolutely stunning but finding the right one can be hard, we all have different tastes and styles. But I have a few astonishing beds that really could catch your eye! The quality and beauty of these beds really does stand out with their unique designs and patterned frames, so a new comfort could be truly found!

    Comfortable

    A bed of comfort, is fabulous bed indeed. The Yasmin upholstered French style bed really does not hold back with its beautiful Beech wood and soft distressed highlighting creating magnificent scenery in the room. Some great ranges to match this with is the Beulieu and Chateau range due to the extraordinary antique white finish, these hand carved beds seriously do not let people down. A gorgeous buttoned bed in a luxurious dusky blue crushed velvet, don’t worry this can be the centre piece to any bedroom with a sense of sophistication.

    Yasmin bed

    Moving on to the Etienne Contemporary Upholstered Bed, this is more of a classic designed bed that has very minimal, subtle and intricate designs. A smooth bed that is crafted by magnificent craftsmen and really puts the emphasis on the classical design, this features a warm linen neutral fabric. Honestly, it gives me a sense of luxury just looking at it and it also matches the Chateau range.

     Other bed

    However, sometimes it’s not all about the bed, adding a little something to your bed could really get the bed looking a bit more luxurious. A bed throw could be one of them and now winter is on its way so the temperature will probably drop, maybe we will even get some snow… So, getting all warm and snug in your bed is essential.

     The Beulieu and Chateau range has some gorgeous finishes for beds and some magnificent designs that are worth looking at!

  • The Halloween themes

    The celebrations are around the corner, as Halloween approaches, people get ready to dress up, party and decorate their house for a Halloween effect. We have some perfect furniture suited to this holiday but also can look stunning any time of year. The Napoli silver mirror is a stunning wall mirror that has an edgy and gorgeous effect to any room.

    This Halloween themes can be so delightful to look at and it really shows the festive spirit, I love seeing the decorations in any holiday, some are truly magnificent. Don’t get me wrong though, it can still be expensive to do this, but I admire how creative and ambitious some people get and the effort they put into it.

     halloween decorations 1

    Countries around the world celebrate Halloween as well as other holidays, communities come together for sweets, candy, food, drinks and the festive spirits, literally spirits because it is Halloween… I’m sorry about that joke, I find the worst jokes are actually the best joke. Accessories can be essential for decorating in any holiday, some of the candle holders we have available are stunning for this holiday. Take a look at the small "oyster" glass candle holder, it can be perfectly suited to this holiday adding a little sense of mystery with this enigmatic smoked tone.

    Another candle holder we offer comes as a pair of 3 but looks terrific because of it adding an edgy scenery to the room. It is  finished in a metallic antique gold that can actually look romantic as well depending on the scenery around the room.

    We at crown french furniture hope you have a fantastic holiday filled with joy and excitement!

  • Autumn vibes

    Sadly, we have to say goodbye to summer soon, the days are starting to get darker, the leaves are turning brown and soon we will all be preparing for winter. Seriously, where has the time gone because summer felt like it lasted 5 minutes…

     autumn-994897_960_720

    However, this is the perfect time to start thinking about your household furniture and decorations for the upcoming winter. I’m not saying buy furniture now or you are going to be too late! But it’s a good idea to start thinking about it for the cold months. To be honest I love these months as much as I love summer because it means I can snug down in my bed again. But I will miss my tan obviously!

     people-1572816_960_720

    One particular bed I like and is the Versailles Gold Leaf French Button Bed which is hand finished in a beautiful genuine gold leaf, and complemented with real silk upholstery. This bed suits the upcoming months with its beautiful and chilled atmosphere it provides. It can catch your eye magnificently.

     Glistening

    I don’t just think it’s all about the furniture though, little things such as bed throws are perfect to start thinking about. It is going to keep getting colder and getting warm in bed is priority! Throws can act as an extra layer or just as something to keep your feet a bit warmer. It’s about the looks as well because throws make beds look absolutely fantastic and welcoming.

    ThrowWe hope that your Autumn is wonderful and you get the Autumn vibes!

    Bed covers and throws are the ultimate finishing touches to any bedroom, creating a fashionable and stunning atmosphere. Have a glance at the Silver Shimmer Fur Throw, it’s perfectly crafted for your comfort and warmth in your bed. But it also makes the room feel cosy and relaxed.

    Another addition to the bedroom is the cushions which can make the bed look more stunning and welcoming to get a good night sleep on! The Velvet Embroidered Cushion Cover has a magnificent detailed design for any room including the bedroom, with a touch of elegance...

    Layout

    A significant part of furniture, is the layout and the organisation. Accessories boost the layouts and stop anything from feeling empty. Take Lamps for example, they can be used in a variety of settings to create the perfect ambience and helps fill up the room.

    One of my personal favourites is the Patterned glass urn lamp with white shade because it adds a bit of class to the room and looks outstanding. But this mainly goes for modern living areas but could also match a traditional style depending on the furniture and layout if the room!

  • Expanding and Outstanding

    Recently we have been expanding our ranges and allowing more niche items to exist within our favourite collections. We have introduced single, smaller beds as well as more eccentric and decadent designs.

    Quality

    Expanding our range means finding pieces and craftsmen that will be able to withhold our lofty standards for our customers. At the heart of our catalogue is the fusion of comfort with style and our recently added pieces embody this desire.

    sophia_upholstered_french_single_bed_1

    Take a look at our new single bed, this is a big step for us as previously our beds have been exclusively doubles or higher sizes. Through dealing with many customers, we came to the decision that it was time we supplied people with a more flexible bed, able to fit into rooms with tight doorways into spaces that couldn’t host a larger bed.

    Variety

    Obviously, a large part of furniture sales is having what people want, so we try to cover as many bases in our somewhat bigger than you would expect area of French style furniture.

    a few pieces with our Parisian contemporary influence a few pieces with our Parisian contemporary influence

    Take our Parisian contemporary pieces, although not a staple piece in our catalogue, it gives you a feel for the variety we try to offer to our customers. Contrast these pieces with some of our more traditional rococo or rattan items and you can see the span of our catalogue.

    Specificity

    Another aspect we have been working on is our niche items, we love these as they tend to be the showstoppers. The items you’ve searched everywhere for and dropped your coffee once you’ve seen it just there amongst our website.

    They wow.

  • Trends: Summer

    I know, Summer is just a season … well arguably much more than just a season … but it most definitely does mess with the stylish funk of everyone’s interiors and so we will call it a trend. Suddenly we have to think of bright colours, glare, ventilation, preventing fading fabrics and garden furniture!!

    Credit: Holloways oakridge Find similar pieces at our website!

    Lighting

    As always, we must stress the role of lighting in a classy environment, however, with the skies a little clearer and the Sun a little brighter we are sure you will start to notice southern facing windows (assuming you live in the northern hemisphere) getting brighter and more hard hitting upon your rooms.

    Summer rays can really become annoying Summer rays can really become annoying

    This impact can seriously hinder your suave style by creating shadowy corners and eye-burning reflections. Make sure to place mirrors out of direct sunlight (also preventing that odd patch of light from the reflection) and perhaps keep darker pieces out of the light to avoid that searing hot seat.

    Fading

    As you can tell, one of our focuses is how the Sun becomes too intense and messes with everything.

    look at that fading!! look at that fading!!

    It doesn’t take as long as you think for your furniture to discolour or darken in intense sunlight. This is natural and will inevitably happen to everyone... But Keep an eye out for anything you will need to look fresh, sitting in the heat as you can add a few years to its life by avoiding those rays.

    A good placement of furniture to prevent fading A good placement of furniture to prevent fading

    Outside!

    Despite all the beaming rays and stuffy rooms, this time of year is amazing and it welcomes the return of lazy days outside on the garden furniture.

    Take a stroll outside and garden! Take a stroll outside and garden!

    Select a few comfy pieces from our range of outdoor furnishings, decorate with some accessories and finish with ice cold lemonade.

    Tan isn’t just for you

    A Final thought; tan colours, beiges and neutrals are everything right now, they exude class and an edgy modern style. Be sure to explore some of these new trends over the season as they work splendidly in the warm weather to give a holiday feel.

  • Contemporary or Modern?

    Interior design is constantly changing and progressing through styles of each era. The beauty of this is that it creates a varied range of crafting techniques and genres of style to choose from. Contemporary can be seen as the style of the time and modern is the newest style.

    Notting Hill - Living Room

    Contemporary to Classic

    All of our ranges were modern at some point, whether that be in 18th century France or today’s England, classical and modern furniture typically embodies the era it was made in. Looking at the best loved classics of today, you can only admire how they were once edgy, adventurous pieces embodying trends and new ideas.

    Essentially, modern is today’s contemporary and a lot of contemporary styles have gone unnoticed simply because they aren’t favoured by a modern audience. Those that are become ‘classics’!

    What to look for

    Whether you go for the more modern inspired or the cultured, you must theme your interior consistently and avoid jumping between eras … unless you are a master of interior design and somehow pull this off, in which case please send us a photo once you do! So choose pieces which work with the style you have gone for, ideally ones with cultural similarities.

    Notice a lot of our chairs feature cabriole legs which work particularly well with the French inspired tables we offer!

    Modern

    On to the battle between the styles, this edgy new age design technique will make you feel fashion forward and is to the taste of the majority of people (hence it takes its place as the modern style). It is arguably the more adventurous but offers a greater payout as you could be at the front of the design revolution of the 21st century.

    Eclectic-Modern-Interior-Design_1

    Contemporary

    When we talk about contemporary we really mean classic, it is commonly called contemporary because it is era specific yet here we need to distinguish between past eras and the modern era. Alternative to the modern era, our classic pieces boast an abundance of tried and tested culture. They are able to bring such a strong sense of character to a room with familiar styles made famous by their respective eras.

    antoinette_collection_french_sleigh_furniture Antoinette Classic French Style Sleigh Bed

    You can make it work

    Each era boasts its own style; each has gone down in history either as famed and recreated or simply a period of exploration. It is your choice which you want to be part of, either celebrating success in the contemporary pieces and styles we provide or using them to bring a new sense of life to your interior. Either way, fashion continues to grow and vary so be part of the change and offer us your opinions on the mirrored, modern designs you can find on our website!

  • Spring in Your Step

    Certain to bring a smile to your face is the arrival of spring! Easter eggs are lining the shelves and the chill of winter is beginning to subside. We adore our seasonal rhythms here at Crown French Furniture, not only because it goes hand in hand with new pieces for our catalogue but because it inspires change everywhere!

    Colour Schemes

    We go on about colour schemes because they are always changing, not just with the seasons but with the trends. This offers a flow of fresh ways to decorate your interior and keep things exciting!

    Bright floral colours that jump out at spring. Bright floral colours that jump out at spring.

    Spring is the most creative of the seasons in our opinion, it entails a vast range of vibrant colours as well as new ways to play with them. Many uses of colour just aren’t as well loved in the colder or even hotter months, one of our favourites is pastels. Being able to decorate with light toned colours allows for a whole new interior to emerge, multiple colours can be combined within an interior using pastels as they don’t become over engaging or contrast too strongly.

    pastel tones pastel tones

    Layout

    Every so often everyone decides to rearrange the furniture, most people hold unwritten rules such as the head of your bed being away from the door but whatever you abide by, it’s nice to see a change in our environment. With spring cleaning coming along it also allows some thorough dusting and reorganisation.

    shuffle that sofa around shuffle that sofa around

    For a freshness to a room, look at shuffling the seating or the position of bookcases, nothing too major but it will feel like a new room from an alternative perspective.

    Lighting

    Use the new found sunshine to highlight any features you want to pop in your interior, whether that be accessories placed to catch the shine or a bigger piece with a beautiful colour you want to come through.
