The lure of French design reigns again with exquisite period detail and an air of opulent elegance. Modern infusions provide wit and warmth (think animal and geometric prints), juxtaposed with lavish antique reproductions. Generous proportions and updated elements add the inviting appeal, enhanced by a rich, understated palette that breathes luxury.
|Furniture Classics’ charming Jolie chest blends traditional Louis XV elements like reeded legs and distressed finish with modern updates in the way of color and toned-down hardware ($1,295).|
|Bailey Street refashions the classic library chair with generous seat, plush upholstery and tufting detail ($760).|
|Chantilly, inspired by an 18th century French antique, lavishly combines volutes, flowers, leaves and wheat in a double-fretted frame with airy openwork composition from Carvers' Guild ($3,500).|
