Belle Escape, a leading online retailer of hand-painted cottage style furniture, recently announced the launch of Belle Maison Francaise (Belle Maison), a new online store that specializes in stylish French furniture and decor.
“French furniture is experiencing a modern-day renaissance,” says Donna Jensen-Madier, founder of Belle Escape and Belle Maison. “Designer showrooms are filled with gorgeous reproductions of Louis and French Provencal style furniture, featuring classic shapes adorned with finishes and fabrics that appeal to today’s aesthetic sensibilities. Belle Maison makes it easy to find the most in vogue French furniture from designer showrooms right online.”
A revival in French furniture has been noted as one of the top 2011 furniture trends by industry experts worldwide. Top interior designers agree.
The folks at Belle Escape asked my views on French style in today’s interiors. This is what I had to say: “I’ve always found that French style is consistently popular with design clients because of its timeless classic style, elegant yet comfortable designs and how well these pieces mix with more modern furniture forms.
Belle Maison segments its furnishings by style, including French Chic, Vintage French, Versailles Chic, Old Provence, French Country and Chateau. As a full-service online furniture store, Belle Maison offers custom finish options, special programs for interior decorators, free shipping on furniture shipped within the continental U.S. and personalized consultations.
