  • How to choose the right French style bed for you

    When it comes to French style beds, choosing the right one for you and your sleep space can be tricky. There are many different designs to choose from - all of which exude French style and flair.

    To help you suss out which type of French bed would best suit you and your home, keep reading.

    Create an authentic vibe with a rattan

    If you’re keen to give your boudoir a totally authentic French vibe, perhaps a rattan style bed is the best match for you. This type of bed boasts a large, curved headboard and footboard, as well as beautifully carved sides, allowing you to make a true style statement in this room. Look out for designs with intricate detailing at the tip of the headboard and legs for a little extra ooh la la.

    Usually, rattan beds are made from strong, sturdy materials, such as solid oak or oak veneer, complete with a soft sheen lacquer finish. Aside from rustic wood shades, we offer rattan frames that have been painted in hues like pure white and soft ivory - the ideal colour choices if you’re looking to give your bedroom a fresh, clean look and feel.

    Keep it classy with an upholstered design

    For a French style bed with class, why not go for an upholstered design? This style of frame often features a soft, padded headboard which has been covered in luxurious fabric. In most cases, the fabric will look ‘buttoned’, giving the bed a stylish and sophisticated appearance. At Crown French Furniture, we also offer frames which have been designed with both an upholstered headboard and footboard section - the perfect choice if you want to transform your bedroom into a boudoir.

    Aside from the upholstered element, this style of bed usually features a wealth of other stunning features. You can take your pick from designs with sloping headboards, as well as models with beautifully curved legs and sides.

    Make a statement with a carved antique model

    To create a charming, classically French bedroom design, a carved antique model is your best bet. With elegant carved detailing on the headboard, sides and footboard, this style of bed frame is traditionally French in appearance.

    So that you can get your decor spot on, look out for designs that have been painted white and have been gently aged to give the frame a slightly distressed look and feel. To complete the room, you can pair the bed with other Provencal style pieces, such as an antique themed wardrobe or bedside cabinet.

    Combine old and new with a venetian bed frame

    If you like the rustic flair of French decor but you’re keen to keep your sleep space looking cool and contemporary, a venetian bed frame could be ideal. The shape of this bed provides a vintage look and feel, while its high mirrored headboard and low footboard exclude modernity, giving you the best of both worlds when it comes to combining old and new.

    The mirrored effect of this style of bed frame can help uplift darker rooms, while adding an element of elegance and sophistication. Venetian style beds are perfect when matched with similar furnishings, such as a mirrored bedside table, chest of drawers or dresser.

  • 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.

  • 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…

    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.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • Accessories are necessary!

    The little things in life bind us together and can mean more to us than anything. That’s why accessories we offer could be perfect for you or maybe as a gift to someone. They can be glamorous additions to your household.

    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!
