  • Reflecting on the year

    As we approach the new year and 2018 comes to an end, we thought we would reflect on some extremely beautiful ranges added to our website that could inspire you in 2019. To be honest this year seems to have gone fast and it feels like 2 weeks ago I was lying in the melting hot sun whilst having a cold refreshing drink. Now I’m in my 2 furry coats scrambling for warmth!

    One of our personal favourites is the Louis Philippe reclaimed furniture just because of its remarkable simplistic and elegant design with imperfections in the wood. I find it rather intriguing since it displays a natural beauty within the room, giving a sense of a traditional cosy household. Using natural wood imperfections has grew in popularity this year and became quite trendy, giving off a timeless classic French design that matches a huge amount of settings they are placed in. Ranging from modern to traditional homes.

    Now if we are really reflecting on the year, then we have to add one of our gorgeous mirrors to this collection so we can really get a reflection… Yes, that was cheesy, I know! But take a look at this fabulous Chantilly dressing table mirror which can be finished in either a beautiful light grey or a luxurious white. From my personal perspective, the white is my favourite colour due to it being more eye catching and standing out in the room. It creates such a tranquil ambience! Now I’m not saying the grey is a bad colour for the mirror. This colour has its own unique qualities by tending to blend into its surroundings more and can also be a centrepiece on top of your dressing table.

    Linking to the mirror, the whole Chantilly range is just marvellous and is finished in a sophisticated antique white or light grey colour. Perfect for most settings, it is crafted from a solid pine wood that will add an opulent touch to any room. In any season, this collection adds their own warm touch to the room and continue to stand out all year round which is why I just had to talk about this lovely design and range.

  • Christmas: Let it Snow!

    This is how you feel walking into our showroom right now! Honestly, we are not exaggerating, our team have outdone themselves with this year's Christmas spread! We've always aimed to put out our accessories and Christmas pieces as soon as people start to think about the festive season. The main reason for this is that you need time to plan, have ideas and execute them. So come into the showroom and see what inspires you this season, colour schemes this year appear to centre around more sparkly atmospheres, golds, silvers, hints of pinks or greens.

    We can also announce a beautiful display of our new four poster, Juliette bed. See last month's post for a run down on why you should come see it in person!

    But back to Christmas! Or the run up to it at least. We have baubles galore! Some nicely hung from our ceiling to create a starry night feel above our displays.

    Others are settled in little buckets at the front of the showroom, a little pick n' mix of high quality baubles can be seen at Crown French Furniture this week.

    Aside from the Christmas tree decorations we have a few beautiful trees for sale. We decided to sway away from the classical design as we always try to offer our customers something new and different to the high-street.

    Just take a look at the simplistic design of this all white tree, it's absolutely beautiful and strays from the evergreen trees to a much more wintery feeling bare tree. As you can see, it is complimented by decorations just as well as your typical tree

  • Four Poster Beds

    As everyone has seen again and again in fairy-tales or Disney films, four poster beds are the first choice of long haired princesses or former-beast Kings. The obvious reason for this is the unrivalled luxury and opulence of the design. It completely changes the vibe of both the bed and the bedroom by adding a veil of privacy to your resting place.

    They are rightfully a symbol for beauty and wealth. Those who have the space for one of these undeniably large feature pieces have to make the most of those high Victorian ceilings and find one that's right for you. There is even an Independent top 10 for these beauties which is definitely worth a browse for some inspiration. It's a quick look at all the different design inspirations, some are minimalist, some take influence from the orient, some show African influence. All boast the high level of craftsmanship you would expect to go into such a marvel.

    Taking a look at our own catalogue, we can see that there is a small range of four poster beds, we provide a few basic designs since we have, so far, offered eccentric and flamboyant  pieces in the form of regular beds. that is to change somewhat with the introduction of our new inspiration.

    Our outstanding Juliette four poster has arrived! Our outstanding Juliette four poster has arrived!

     As you can see, our Juliette is nothing like we have offered before. It offers a romantic atmosphere and soft neutral tones to create an utterly tranquil environment. It also adds a sense of flamboyance to our four poster range. Previously we have offered safe, comfortable designs, but this icon blows them out of the water with an amazingly soft button upholstery featuring jewelled buttons! Now that is unique, and completely new to our catalogue.

    The game has been changed! Fern xx

  • Louis Phillipe and reclaimed wood

    Our extensive catalogue is ever progressing and recently we have explored the classical French design of Sleighs. The Greek encouraged this movement in 19th century French design, leading to these scroll-like curves featuring beautifully in French furniture. We have been fans of this design for some time, as shown by our Antionette range and the outstanding craftsmanship that goes into those pieces. These boast a mahogany build and so have a very strong presence, this makes them outstanding feature pieces and collectively they create an unbelievable bedroom aesthetic.

    see how the sleigh style becomes an eye-catching feature to a neutral bedroom see how the sleigh style becomes an eye-catching feature to a neutral bedroom

    Similar to the Antionette range, here, the sleek understated style of the sleigh is very minimalist and allows the quality of the wood to shine through perfectly. In contrast to our Antionette range, the Louis Phillipe pieces are crafted in reclaimed wood with a much different presence than the powerful mahogany above. We wanted to add depth and bring this luxurious aesthetic into a more homely and warm light and this range does so exquisitely. The charming imperfections of the wood give it an amazing natural appeal and allows it to blend with other wood pieces splendidly.

    in reclaimed wood, the sleigh style becomes so homely and welcoming in reclaimed wood, the sleigh style becomes so homely and welcoming

    As you can see, although both ranges draw similar inspiration they are stark contrasts to one another in terms of interior designs. Thus, we now offer the sleigh style in a soulful and sombre range as well as an extraordinarily bold and beautiful collection.

    We're very excited to see what our customers do with these pieces, we hope to see lots of farmhouse interiors and rustic style.

  • More than just a sale!

    Our typical sales see discounts given on the pieces which we want to bring to you, that means new arrivals, what's hot this month or pieces we think have gone unnoticed. But here, the Cristal range has been a front runner for our fans for such a long time, it has such a strong presence in our catalogue that we have to stress that this is not a sale but a celebration of the jaw dropping excellence of this range.

    sale our Cristal wide chest

    We have offered these pieces since very early on in our small shop's lifetime, now is the first time that such a discount has been put on them. We want to make them available for a short time to everyone who has been striving to get a hold of them.

    The reason for this is the line will not be with us after the sale, so as one final blow out, we want them to go out with style!

    protectedimage3_1

    And what an abundance of style it is! It doesn't take long to see why this range has been so sought after for so long. The exquisite silver leaf finish is more than a paint, it is a luxurious, hand-made coat bringing the piece to life. It is the stand-out feature of this range and perfectly resembles the quality of craftsmanship which goes into every step of its construction.

    This finish is to die for! This finish is to die for!

    This is backed by the sturdy mahogany frame which does justice to the sleek design by ensuring it remains fresh and strong. In terms of hand-feel, this wood screams quality and allows the range to remain a staple of decadence even after years of enduring day-to-day wear.

    we implore you to browse the Cristal range, if not to draw you to the amazing savings but to celebrate the astounding run of this unforgettable furniture.

    Cristal, you will be missed. Fern xx

  • Luxury!

    The main focus on furniture is the balance between beauty,  practicality and comfort . That is what French furniture can achieve and that is how you create the luxury feeling.  There are no limits on what furniture you have, it's literally all down to personal preference. This is why i love french furniture because of the different styles and how unique the designs are!

    Rattan_French_Beds1

    Some of the best and most luxurious  hotels in the world go for a traditional french design, because of their gorgeous carvings and beautiful antique finishes! Additionally, the quality is just tremendous with a huge variety of french style furniture and designs for everyone.

    Some might say, hand carved to perfection... French furniture gives you the feeling of luxury and comfort all in one go. Each piece and collection is unique with different carved designs, finishes and details.  This is becoming more popular over the years and can help to produce different atmospheres within your interior.

    The chateau range is an example of a unique collection of classical French furniture with many traditional features. Highlighted with a light patina for an aged appeal and finished with an antique white colour. Which includes very intricate carved details to create a sophisticated  atmosphere.

  • A spring to remember

    Spring is just around the corner already, 2018 has started so quick and hopefully everyone is sticking to their new year’s resolutions! Spring is perfect for creation and new designs because the sun light will help highlight any features you want to pop in your interior. Whether that be accessories placed to catch the light or to capture a colour scheme you want to come through.

    sun rise

    To really catch colours in the light this spring is more bright and floral, it jumps out at you and brightens up the whole interior for a tranquil setting. This is a very colourful season and often is the most creative, it could even set your interior design up for summer!

    A hot trend in spring is more of an indigo blue or more of a refined coastal look, but this colour could possibly be overwhelming or too much for a whole room decoration for a number of people. But maybe simple accessories such as vases and flowers in this colour could even liven up the room.

    Indigo 500 x 500

    A gorgeous addition to the dining room is the Pembroke dining table for an “aura of sophistication.” Magnificent for a spring collection with a warm oak colour that really helps capture the light.

    pembroke_french_painted_dining_tableWe offer a lot of ranges and collections of furniture which all have spectacular designs and are excellent quality. But one range stands out amongst all which is the Camille. Produced from Oak veneers with a traditional and French design but can still go beautifully with a modern interior. Perfect for this spring, the Camille is an alternative to having bright and floral colours, giving a more peaceful setting whilst still capturing the light. A design like this can still make your interior pop in spring and can carry its charm over to summer as well.

    Make this a spring to remember.

  • Divine design

    Produce a powerful and stunning presence in the room with the Portofino collection, it has the classical design implemented into it and is crafted so perfectly. The craftsman really needs a round of applause for this divine design, and its gorgeous light grey stone finish that is distressed with subtle and intricate carvings. The seven drawer Portofino chest is an excellent addition to the bedroom and really creates a laid back and chilled vibe around the room. It is amazing to light up a room and has plenty of storage capacity for anyone to use!

    cff2443_portofino_light_grey_7_drawer_french_chestThe Camille collection is a classical inspired and traditional design, honestly this is personally one of my favourite designs with its weathered oak finish that creates a beautiful setting. The finish creates a rustic rich tone which has a romantic vibe and is the perfect finishing touch to any room. A perfect example of this is the ravishing Camille French style upholstered bed with simple curves covered in a natural fabric and made from solid oak wood! Truly majestic…

     camille-weathered-oak-french-bed

    Taking their divine design from the 18th century is the Charlotte French Inspired Oak Furniture with a really traditional and warm appearance to them. Crafted from solid oak and a soft sheen lacquer finish, creating a tranquil atmosphere around the room. One very unique piece of furniture is the Charlotte oak 8 Drawer Chest, an interesting design by the craftsmen with a big draw central in the chest. Also featuring antique brass handles that really complements the drawers and has an amazing presence to it.

  • Winter chills

    The temperature is dropping, are you staring to feel it? I’m already starting to add my fur throws on to my bed at night for that extra warmth! It’s already freezing and we all just want to be all snug in and outside our homes. As much I love summer and basking in the sun, I am actually looking forward to winter because I can start bringing out my nice silky jumpers and coats!

    Winter lake

    An exquisite colour scheme for this winter is grey, it’s a magical and fabulous colour which adds extra cosy feelings to the house. This can be used for your home accessories or furniture to create a soft balance. To be honest I also love grey because it is more neutral and tranquil and it just suits winter due to the elegance of it.

    Grey interior design

    A beautiful grey collection we have, is the Malvern range with very smooth carvings. However, this colour is a very light and a gentle grey but still looks absolutely fabulous. Why not have a sneak peek at our Malvern Extending Dining Table with a combination of rustic oak wood and a fabulous smooth off- grey finish.

    malvern_dining_table

    Texture is crucial for winter, whether it’s using accessories, furniture or anything in your house! There are wide collections of furniture and accessories to choose from to help bring a colour scheme or layout together. Just adding that little something to your home could really make a difference.

    The winter chills are really here and this year is going so quick, Christmas is around the corner so don't forget to stay warm this season! Winter is coming.

  • 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.

     Fur throw on bed

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