  • Why We Love: The Gilt French Curved Bed

    The flood of orders for Gold beds has inspired us. We currently have a tremendous amount of happy customers looking at their Rococo Antique Gold beds (and a fair few waiting to join them!). But for those who haven't found love with the heavy floral carvings, this blog is about our upholstered hero.

    Button upholstered, gilt vibes

    Our Gilt French curved bed brings the same elegance of antique gold as our rococo but with a more homely feel. Whilst the rococo shows of regality, the gilt French brings a more contemporary style. The floral carvings are more subtle and serve to compliment the button upholstery beautifully. This makes the star of the show the contrast between the finish and the fabric.

    The button upholstery on our Gilt bed looks so inviting

    Whilst the antique gold adds light and brightness to the piece, the softness of our linens finishes the overall look of class with a sense of comfort. We see the bed as a more homely approach to the antique gold style. This is because it incorporates parts of French design in a loving, warm way.

    How to style it

    Pair this bed with the rest of our Gilt and Gold Leaf range or use strong colours to bring out the opulence. This range thrives with contrast elsewhere in the room so be brave and make the most of those eye catching designs.

    Pair it with some lush rug to really boost that cozy and classy appeal. Alternatively, bring some neutrals in and let the French style be the star of the show.

    Fleur

    For anyone who sees all this gold and feels overpowered, our Fleur range is for you. We take the carvings and style of our gold range but tone it down with a more palatable silver leaf.

    This finish is less powerful and allows more flexibility. Style this range with the same brave colours our gold pieces thrive with for the perfect bedroom.

  • Bespoke Furniture

    For us at Crown French Furniture, the most important thing is making each piece of our furniture perfect for everyone of our customers. When ordering from us you can rest assured that we will be able to make a piece that is perfect for your home. Our website showcases our finest collections of French, reproduction, contemporary and shabby chic style furniture. But if you can't quite find what you are looking for, we can create a design that is unique to your own individual taste.

    How do we do it?

    Using local craftsmen, upholsterers, carpenters and painters we can alter the finish of any of our products to make them to your individual taste. But don't just take our word for it, above are some images of what we have created or altered for our customers.... Some might say, hand crafted to perfection...

    Our furniture makers have honed their craft over many years. They are proud craftsmen who constantly provide the highest quality of construction. We work to the exact specifications of our customers to create the most sensational designs. If your dining room, bedroom or living room has an awkward alcove we can provide a solution. If you are simply looking for a different colour, consider it done. We can create furniture that is unique to you because we believe in being yourself!

    We always back our star player in the role of customised beds, in rain or shine we love our Sophia Button Upholstered French bed. Its clean, its crisp and its simple yet ornate, it possesses gentle curves that stop it from becoming overpowering and also boasts classical carved features.

    Materials and finishes...

    All of our lovely products are sourced from carefully chosen highly respected manufacturers who share our commitment to quality, longevity and value for money. We use solid wood, antiqued mirrors and metal to create our collections.

    As the majority of our French and contemporary furniture is hand crafted from quality solid wood, they do need to be treated with a certain amount of after care.

    Why personalise...

    Every home is unique and every home should feel that way. If every home was the same, life would get very boring very quickly. The space you live in often defines the way that you live and when you customise the furniture that is in that space can be a direct expression of yourself and how you want to live. The main focus on our furniture is the balance between beauty, practicality and comfort, but the finish should also complement the personality of the people in it. When our customers come to us with an idea, we can make it a reality with 1-1 care throughout the process.

  • 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!

    Living room fireplace

    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.

    Finally, we also want to thank everyone for another amazing year! We have loved interacting with all of you whether its been through social media, reviews, customer orders or even this blog page. You have all been a huge help to us this year and we will continue to aim  to make you happy and satisfied with our services.

    Thank you

  • 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…

     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.
