What is French Provincial Furniture?
French provincial furniture originates from the south of France (particularly Bordeaux, Brittany, Normandy and Provence), circa 17th and 18th century. After World War 1, soldiers returned from battle inspired by the fine country homes they had seen in the southern part of France. Their interest created the revival of the provincial style as it’s known today. Fast forward to the 20th century and you’ll find that French furniture is as popular as it has ever been. It’s warm and inviting style is the hallmark of the French décor, while at the same time it is achievable, practical, beautiful and still elegant. Check out our range of four poster beds and other French provincial bedroom furniture.
Where did this style originate?
French provincial furniture, and the art of French country decorating has a long pedigree. During the reign of Louis XIV, Marie Antoinette owned a small country cottage along with manor houses built at Versailles. Although she had access to all the ornate decor of the palace at her disposal, she preferred the rustic charm of the French countryside during her leisure time. Today, popular Cape Cod and Hampton styles are influenced by the symmetrical and pastoral simplicity of French provincial design.
