Paris Decor

Some of the finest furniture ever made came out of Paris in the reign of the infamous French Louis kings, who commissioned skilled craftsmen to create furniture for their palaces in the traditional baroque and more playful rococo style, With such an awe-inspiring history of fine furniture, it is no wonder Parisians still hunt for bargains in the local brocantes or flea markets hoping to find undiscovered remnants of this golden era of furniture making and fine arts.

Paris may have discarded its Monarchical rule during the French revolution but if you walk through a classic Haussmann’s, Parisian apartment you are bound to find in the decor, a few pieces at least, of 17th century Baroque furniture and reference to Art Nouveau and Art Deco, a visionary explosion of decorative forms by artists wanting to break free from the traditional constraints of the historical, baroque era.

Everywhere you go in Paris you see the message of the past in it’s classical architecture and Napoleon inspired avenues and parks, so it’s not surprising to find Parisians mixing their Paris decor look with modern and antique furnishings.
