Probably one of the most significant contributions by the French in the home decor & home furnishings space. Provincial french furniture is characterized by opulence and has traditionally been marked by an ostentatious display of wealth
However, modern designs are increasingly quite sober but still feature heavy carvings & occasionally feature ornate materials combined with smooth & expensive upholstered fabric like velvet, silk or kashmeer
The trend of using French furniture has recently seen an uptick, even here at FurnitureRoots, we've supplied about a container-full of carved provincial style furniture across businesses in Australia & New Zealand. This is a radical departure (for the better) from using characterless, mass-manufactured, machine-produced furniture that withers away after a couple of years.
Although we ourselves are an off-shore manufacturer, we prefer this arrangement not to save cost, but to have access to the best quality skilled labor that our range of French provincial furniture requires.
