This week we're celebrating the tenth anniversary of The French Bedroom Company and with it, 10 Years of Love. From the very beginning our ethos was to bring interiors loveliness, in a loving way to lovely customers and, to date, we've done just that - transforming over 15k bedrooms internationally. Reflecting on the past ten years, our founder, Georgia shares the journey so far...
"Sometimes a momentary day-dream becomes so strong that you can’t help thinking ‘What if…’. And then ‘Why not?’, and before you know it you’ve made a business plan (well, you’ve scribbled some ideas and done a few sums in a pink notebook). And then you’re designing a logo, buying sample products, booking a photographer and buying flowers for the photo shoot.
In the beginning, back in 2006, we started with 3 French beds, 4 chandeliers and a handful of rugs and bed linen. Our very first website was designed by a close friend and we used my home as the location for the photo shoot. Systems were basic, stock was low but ideas were flowing and hearts were aflutter. When the phone rang for the first time and we had our first sale we did a little jig!
Now, in this landmark year, we celebrate 10 years of creativity, craftsmanship and love. We’re still a small ‘boutique’ business - we still research and develop each product with meticulous love and care, treating it with the importance as if it was for our own bedroom.
We love what we sell, we always have and we hope it shows.
With theme of 10 in mind, we've collated our 10 all time greats - the favourites, from the last ten years as chosen by us, by you and by interiors world influencers.
