French Furniture for White Wednesday

New Inventory for this White Wednesday...
I have been working on some great new pieces...
Wonderfully carved furnishings that are the classic 
Full Bloom Cottage style.

Through out the years my style has evolved, and I definately set the standard
for what I buy for my store.  
I always say "I wouldn't buy something that I wouldn't want
for my own home."
With the mix of my paint colors, and paint techniques, I was able
to create "new painted" antiques that have
the "old painted" look.  
My classic colors are the whites, and oysters, and my new adventure in paint colors
are the dark grays.  Sometimes a contrast in color is needed, especially in an all white room.
Enjoy some of the photos for our new inventory...

 These are a set of 4 parsons chairs,
sold only as a set... They have wonderful
carvings, and are upholstered in a 13oz heavy belgian linen.

 Roses, roses, roses....
We love anything rose carved.
These below are a set of 4 cane back
roses carved chairs,
we had the seats reupholstered in a heavy oyster belgian linen,
with antique nailhead trim.

 Classic carved mirror
perfect for over your vanity, or you
entry way.

 Single, Louis XVI Gold Gilded Chair
Toile tapestry, and original nailhead trim.

 Last but not the least, I loooove this Louis XIV
desk, original wood patina
It is absolutely the perfect contract for your
romantic cottage...

For the Love of Old....Antique French Cane.

 I love anything with original cane. This beautiful old Louis XV Cane Desk came to us needing new life.  An old brown two toned finish, we gave it new life, by painting it in this weathered
gray distressed finish.  A special aging technique was applied to the paint finish, and the cane to make it blend with the paint.
I was breathless at the end result, ran around my entire home trying to see where I could put this desk.
sadly I have nowhere....
As my husband says, "you can't keep everything"
even though I try, especially the most fantastic pieces...
Which this is one of them...

 Our new linen union jack pillow in natural and fog.
vintage edge perfectly tattered...
available at our online store...
 Here's another great piece... A most perfect twin
cane bed with original Rose Swags
Original old cream paint.
Available online as well here.

 Last but not least, I have this beautiful Gustavian 
settee, in oyster white Belgian linen.
Perfect for any room.
Antique nailhead finish.
Available online here.

Thanks for stopping by.
New inventory coming soon....
