The Era of Statement Furniture

The 18th century and the early 19th century brought the world French Provincial and Baroque furniture. The wealthy people of this era were especially proud and desired to show off their wealth through furniture. French Country furniture showed how decadent the wealthy were.

Every furniture piece was lavished with intricate, ornate, and delicate designs and patterns. You can relive that era with signature piece furniture from Huntington Lane. Floral patterns like fleur-de-lis, roses, fruit, and curves and swirls that gave this period furniture timeless character.

The bedroom was one of the rooms with a focal point on fascinating, detailed French-inspired designs. Beds, dressers, chests, mirrors, side tables, and other timeless pieces were used to create beautiful bedrooms. You, too can experience a fancy bedroom with a French bed and create the atmosphere you desire in the boudoir.

What is your ideal French Bed?

Choosing your ideal Provincial Era furniture is a matter of personal taste and style. It helps to have a few tips and ideas for choosing bedroom furniture pieces.

Bed Size

First, decide what bedroom for which you are selecting a bed. If it’s a small bedroom, your best option is to choose a single or king-single sized bed. Medium bedrooms can accommodate double or queen beds. Finally, if you’re searching for a French Provincial bed for a larger master suite, you have plenty of room for a queen or king sized bed. What you don’t want is a bed that takes up more space in the room, taking away from the desired interior design effect.

Bed Style

Once you know the size, you get to choose the style you want. It is also important to choose French accent furniture and pieces to go with your French-inspired bedroom.
