French Antique Furniture
During the 17th and 18th centuries, French culture had a significant influence on Europe as a whole. And nowhere can this be seen more clearly than in the way that French tastes in furniture were adopted widely – so much so that they could be found in many well-to-do homes here in Britain. Interestingly, this period is responsible for many designs that we still see and cherish in furniture today: the chest-of-drawers and the modern desk were both invented during this time. Subsequent designers in the 19th and 20th centuries continued to find inspiration in the work from this period, and original pieces remain desirable and valuable additions to the modern home.
