French Style Home: French Laundry Furniture
December 26, 2011 § Leave a comment
One of the hottest trends this year was definitely French Laundry Style Furniture. This is a more relaxed style that often incorporates lighter weight fabrics, like linens and cottons. The colors are subdued, light and bright. Often tans, ivory’s and white are used with the occasional “pop” of black or red for accents. A large part of the fabrics used with this style incorporate text or script writing and stripes. It isn’t unusual to see the occasional burlap sack (think potato sacks) thrown in.
When decorating with a French Laundry aesthetic, keep the following tips in mind:
* Bright and Breezy: think of the wind blowing through a field on a sunny day and keep your color palette light and natural.
* Texture: look for fabrics such as burlap and linen for a rustic country feel.
*Pattern: common patterns associated with French Laundry are toiles, ticking stripes and vintage countryside images.
One of our favorite pieces this year that resembles the French Laundry Style Furniture was ” The Juliet” sofa. It’s elegant yet casual style graced our showroom floor for a long time but now it’s time to see her go. Check out our HUGE clearance sale going on NOW.
