Each one of these French country style chest of drawers is a little distressed. Well perhaps one is a bit more distressed than the others! I love this look because you can add some beautiful accessories and create a touch of modern chic to any room in the house.
It's always easy for me to find something that I like from The French Bedroom Company and this gorgeous trailing, trellis mirror is no exception. The beautiful bevelled mirror is surrounded by a stunning, distressed stone effect frame. A great piece to add a touch of shabby chic.
This beautiful French style seat from Graham & Green is probably not what comes to mind for something called a 'bench'. Very ornate. Very stylish. Would look lovely "showing off" in a bedroom especially if placed at the end of the bed. You certainly wouldn't expect to see this in a park or garden!
There isn't always the time, inclination or expertise available to decide how a room might be decorated. It can be made a lot easier if you can see some photos of the furniture that you would like to buy in a room setting that appeals to you. This is something that John Lewis does very well as the above photos of their Rose Bedroom Furniture show. A hand painted, hand distressed collection, with a touch of shabby chic displayed in a light, airy and muted colour scheme
Vintage and yet traditional, this 1930's rattan lounge chair is perfect for inside at this time of year and yet will look fabulous outside when Summer returns. Complete with its own detachable foot rest. Just for me I think!
Contemporary and very stylish, this armchair from French designer Patrick Norguet and Alias is both lightweight and beautiful. Made from cast aluminium and stainless steel which has been laquered in either red or white, it looks great on its own or around the dining table with 'friends'.
This beautifully shaped triple mirror from LAURA ASHLEY has beenetched with a garland around the top and sides. Pretty enough to cheer up any morning when it's a struggle to get out of bed! At the moment it is in the sale so that should please even more and there is also a plain one for sale if you are not the frilly kind!
This chair looks so comfy! A French inspired chair that doesn't have to be placed in a French themed room - (as the photo shows so well). It's the Adele reading chair from Graham And Green. Very majestic. Not just for reading, I'd say!
