What Do the French and Swedish Have in Common?

Wisteria Linen  European Furniture - Natural Linen Settee W2506

This brilliant settee from Wisteria!  French provincial never looked so good than dressed up with a little Louis XV grandeur then subdued by Swedish-style linen. The curvy elegance of this settee is situated atop carved cabriole legs made of distressed wood. Two pillows are included for a bit of extra comfort. Use in place of a traditional living room sofa and pair with a couple of French chairs.

Even if you don’t own a manor house in the French countryside, you can pull off the look by pairing this beauty with patinaed metals, woven chair backs and seats and gold-gilded mirrors. If you have dreams of visiting Paris one day, tide yourself over by adding a touch of French style to your home.

Carry the French theme throughout your space with additional living room furniture that compliments your heavenly settee. Here’s our picks for a fabulous room…

Armoire - Wynwood Furniture - 1593-77

Paris Flea 
Golden Teak Eighteen-Light Chandelier

   

Old world style and romantic charm meet modern functionality in this patina-finished amoire. Pictured in Honey Ash by Wynwood.

Add a touch of the unexpected to your living room with this exquisite Paris Flea Golden Teak Eighteen-Light chandelier (if you thought that was a mouth full try saying it in French). This one is to completely die for.  So what if the chandelier costs more than your settee…if the $3,600 price tag doesn’t fit your budget take a look at some similar items that might. 

Ethan Allen may not be of French descent but he did one heck of a job fooling us with this antique-washed Kashan Rug in muted shades of soft green, khaki and terra-cotta. Get one for your room. Your feet will thank you and think they’ve just walked through a Persian garden.  Enjoy  the spoils of a perfectly-posh Parisian existence!
