Georgia's Obsession is... FURNITURE!
Almost all of our items are made from mahogany timber, sourced from forests which are all part of regeneration programmes. Our seven-stage finishing process includes hand sanding, filling, sealing, painting, distressing, antique ageing and final sealing.
These special techniques come from France and Italy and are replicated from the original methods handed down from generations of craftsman. As a result our carvers are amongst the most skilled in this field throughout the world!
To help you with your room scheme design, we have clustered our French Furniture into collections (e.g. Provencal, Versailles), so you can be sure of a matching colour, style and finish. Because each piece is uniquely hand-finished, no two pieces are 100% identical.

To help you with your choice, we have samples of most fabrics and paint finishes. Please call or ping us an email and we will happily pop a sample in the post to you.
Sadly, several companies sell cheap, low quality copies of our beautiful French furniture. They often use our photography too, making it impossible to tell what you're buying until it arrives. Customers often complain about the crude quality of the carvings, a lack of intricate detailing, shiny paint that looks like it has been sprayed on, and upholstery in an overly shiny satin (not our high grade slub-silk). This is really tragic - our French style furniture is so beautiful, and so we understand why it is copied, but who wants a bad copy of something beautiful, especially when it's still such an investment? After all, these should be family heirlooms and not just pieces that will need replacing once the paint flakes off.
The reason that we are featured so heavily by the interiors press, and the reason for our loyal customer base is that we have a reputation built on only providing genuine, original, high quality products at competitive prices. We also offer first class customer service, and our staff are interiors experts who have worked in the industry (as interior designers, at interiors magazines and furnishing companies) for many years, or you can even speak to our Founder, Georgia, for her personal advise on your room scheme.
It's very flattering that other companies would want to imitate our lovely French style furniture. But do beware! If you spot a saving of hundreds of pounds, we can almost guarantee that it's the not the same item at all. If companies are selling products for less than we can buy them, we know they are not the same, so please take care if you spot 'the same' goods for less elsewhere.
