Adding Some Eighteenth Century Style to Your Bedroom

One popular style of furniture that has continued to grow in popularity since it was originally conceived in the mid-eighteenth century is French style bedroom furniture. It has disappeared and returned with fashion trends, which has seen it transform slightly in some ways.

Elegant bedroom furnished with French provincial furniture

Plenty of the French style furniture we now see in retailers originated from the provincial furniture of France – the most prominent feature being the cabriole legs, which you can see in the image above on the Louis XV influenced chair on the left and the decorative bedroom stool at the foot of the bed.

The price of an original piece of this furniture could be quite expensive and hard to come by, but never fear! We sell a great selection of luxurious bedroom furniture of this style that will suit a traditional, neutral contemporary, rustic or country-style bedroom that we’d like to share with you.
