French Bedroom Furniture

  • The Beauty in the Wood

    A rich textured grain is a beautiful thing and can be used exquisitely to bring a natural and fresh look to your interior, however, used wrongly it can provide a clash of tones and a mess of confusing aesthetics.

    So keep a keen eye out when selecting wooden pieces as it is vital to blend the materials together seamlessly!

    Zero Diversity

    In the realm of wooden interiors or those furnished as such, you can never go wrong with a staple wood. One consistently used timber that provides the textured grainy look without needing another to contrast, favoured examples of these are oak, for its lighter tones, and mahogany, tried and tested, a true classic.

    Solid oak furniture has seen a rise in recent years, with large scale shops specialising in the wood, and it’s no surprise as it offers a familiar light colour with wood knots to give it a more natural look. It is a front runner as it is not overpowering and pieces can be solely constructed from the wood and still look sleek and sophisticated, it also goes exceedingly well with silver, steel or chrome metals which fashion superb handles in our Tuscany range!

    As a contrast is the stand alone, unmistakable appearance of mahogany, the wood that has been used across every range and every style, and for good reason! It is a strong and incredibly durable timber which is a priceless asset when choosing pieces that you hope to maintain for years to come. From all mahogany dark toned furnishings that exude a powerful masculine presence to the white painted, hand carved pieces it is a truly extraordinary wood with a beautiful grain and texture, one which we love to work with and chose for our Chateau range.

    Mixing the Grain

    A delicate procedure if there ever was one in the realm of interior design, mixing different flavours of wood and creating a multi-tonal masterpiece within your living space’s harmony can be catastrophic if done carelessly.

    So your aim is to create harmony between contrasting pieces, it can be beautiful, it can be a show stopping display of your interior expertise and so we do not want to discourage it. Here goes.

    Our advice on blending different woods in one room!

    1. Keep it fun, there’s no point in adding a splash of fair if you naturally stay between the lines. This can cause a contrast of interests in your home and having one room as a sleek, by-the-book recipe interior and another as a mix of this that and everything in between is a no go! 
    1. Keep it Light, different textures are good, they are celebrated in fact! We must tread carefully however and only allow so much change in one room. Otherwise we end up with items that clash harder than Crocs and a little black dress … now wouldn’t that look stupid. 
    1. Keep looking! It’s hard to find what you’re looking for, especially in different ranges of wood, but persevere and you will be thankful when you find the perfect piece and so glad that you didn’t settle for that rotten thing that “almost works”.

    As always, wishing you a keen eye and something to buy!

  • A New Look

    Our gorgeous NEW Beaulieu bed has just arrived in our showroom and we are truly in love with it.

    We have always said 'The perfect sanctuary of sleep begins with choosing the right bed' and as Tina Gaudoin pointed out in Elle Decoration mag "It's a given that most of us love being in bed." With the average person spending over a third of their life sleeping we could see the importance of creating a bed that will enrich this time.

    For many years people have been trying to create that gorgeous French boudoir and have been demanding a range of gold, silver, white, grey and many more finishes to give an uplifting yet subtle appeal to our traditional reproduced furniture.

    Our latest endeavour therefore lead us to design a bed which has been finished majestically in a glamorous antique gold paint. Exuding regal undertones of flamboyant Parisian razzle-dazzle.

    A light distressing and a stunning light Velvet fabric enriches this masterpiece with elegance and sophistication.

    Contrasting to our standard Beaulieu collection which is finished in an off-white finish for a more contemporary and neutral appeal, the revisited gold Beaulieu bed holds a more traditional and tranquil ambience. beaulieu_french_bed_set_image_1

    We are aiming for the gold Beaulieu bed to be live on our website soon with a few professional photographs to capture the true beauty of the piece.

    But for now you can always check out our standard Beaulieu collection or enquire with our sales team to reserve one. -The Gold version will be the same price as the standard Beaulieu bed...

    We'd love to hear your thoughts so feel free to let us know your opinions by commenting on our blog or social media posts!
