What is your number one top tip to consider when buying home interior pieces?

Measure, measure, measure.  Cut up newspaper into the footprint shape of the item to see how it sits in the room (and that it fits through your door and up the stairs).  It’s always heartbreaking talking to customers who find something is too large to fit through their doors.

If you were a piece of contemporary or French furniture what would you be and why?
A French bed, because that's where it all begins!

Which room would we find you in at a party?
In the kitchen at first, then on the dancefloor, and then on the sofa!

Which is your favourite room in the showroom?
I love the grown up femininity of the Bonaparte room with the Birdcage wallpaper – it always feels so serene and peaceful in there.  And I love that the very same wallpaper lined the walls of the room in the Goring Hotel where Kate Middleton got ready to marry her Prince!

What is your number one top tip to consider when buying home interior pieces?
Don't be afraid of choosing more than one colour in your room scheme.  As long as the style of products matches (say, all French furniture), you can mix cream, gold, silver or white and it will look right without being too matchy-matchy!

If you were a piece of contemporary or French style furniture what would you be and why?
A huge chest of drawers, keeping lots of things organised and under control (just don't look at the state of my desk!)

Which room would we find you in at a party?
Everywhere and anywhere – the dancefloor, the sofa, the kitchen, wherever there are lovely and fun people to chat with.

Which is your favourite room in the showroom?
I love the Whisky Room, with its plush sofas, beautiful lighting, long lacquered tables and a huge open fireplace – the most relaxing place to escape to with a cheeky glass or two.

What is your number one top tip to consider when buying home interior pieces?
You have to LOVE it! But try to stick to a small range of colours, maybe a neutral base with a couple of accent colours, otherwise it could run the risk of looking a bit messy stylistically. If you're sticking to similar colours then you can be eclectic with your styles - mix and match a bit of French furniture with something more modern.

If you were a piece of contemporary or French style furniture what would you be and why?
Most definitely a French wardrobe - I love clothes and would be in my element surrounded by beautiful clothes all day.

Which room would we find you in at a party?
Wherever the drinks are being served - I love making sure everyone's got a drink and having a good time, so that's a pretty good place to start!

Which is your favourite room in the showroom?
The Gaucho room, I love the drama and opulence of the dark walls and sumptuous seating.  I’m a real fan of our antler products and they look perfectly at home in this room.

What is your number one top tip to consider when buying home interior pieces?
Don't be afraid to choose your favourite things! On a singular basis they may be a little mismatched, but I love the unpredictability of an eclectic style, and things only ever exist within their given context. It's a real treat to look around a room and find interesting objects which continue to add to the character of a room and its curator. It's all there to be enjoyed!

If you were a piece of contemporary or French furniture what would you be and why?
A beautifully crafted period style statement armchair, just as satisfying to look at as it is to curl up in and enjoy!

Which room would we find you in at a party?
You'll find me in the dining room or kitchen. I am readily drawn in by lovely people and hearty conversation, and dining tables form the ideal platform. With a relaxed ever-changing atmosphere of a party, there is always a way to squeeze in and make the most of such a busy and varying group of people.

Which is your favourite room in the showroom?
It has to be the Gaucho room, it really shows how the most unlikely of furnishing partners can come together to form an intense and decedent setting - classic French furniture and more progressive pieces working in perfect harmony. There is a broad use of texture alongside a dark, rich tone to form an opulent yet contemporary environment.

What is your number one top tip to consider when buying home interior pieces?
Pick something you love and would only grow to like it more as the time passes. And take into consideration the space you want vs. the furniture you want.

If you were a piece of contemporary or French furniture what would you be and why?
I would definitely be something like our Versailles Gold Chaise Longue, relaxing in some beautiful ancient mansion and reading, reading, reading...

Which room would we find you in at a party?
Probably by the dining table, listening to the conversation and enjoying the space and peace.

Which is your favourite room in the showroom?
The Bonaparte room is the one! I had my interview there which went well. And I love every single piece of furniture there, especially the spectacular French bed!

What is your number one top tip to consider when buying home interior pieces?

I think it's all about you. There are thousands of different opinions when it comes to interior design, but ultimately, it's your choice. Do you prefer a mix of just two colours or do you love colourful surroundings? Minimalist or eclectic? You don't have to win design awards - you just have to love the place you live in.

If you were a piece of contemporary or French furniture what would you be and why?
I would like to be a Fight Me Grand Antler Chandelier because I admire its naturalness and magnificence. Also, I love being aware of what is going on around me - and from the ceiling I'd get the best view! Lastly, what could be better than bringing a light to people's lives? :-)

Which room would we find you in at a party?
For me, it's not about the room. I would be where the fun and interesting people are. No matter if we are enjoying the dancefloor or sitting on the stairs!

Which is your favourite room in the showroom?
I think all of them are well worth a visit. However the Whisky Room (with that amazing huge horse inside!) is a special place for me because it was the first room I saw at The French Bedroom Company. Although I was in this room for the job interview, I felt surprisingly comfortable and relaxed there. I know I will have a similar one in my future house!

What is your number one top tip to consider when buying home interior pieces?
I would say that you should go for one statement piece, which has the colour that you really like, then go from there and choose furniture in the same colour spectrum to go with it. If you're not sure about going for something bold, then go for darker colours in a classic neutral room- it won't stand out too much but will be subtle enough to be noticed.

If you were a piece of contemporary or French furniture what would you be and why?
I would definitely be a bed- a luxurious, soft and grand bed. When it's raining, all you need is a nice comfy blanket a film and snacks for an easy and relaxing day.

Which room would we find you in at a party?
The living room, it's the room where people show most of their style and have the stories to go for every piece in there. You can learn so much by being there; my parents keep their travel souvenirs in the living room; just pick one item and you'll learn its history!

Which is your favourite room in the showroom?
The Provencal Sassy Room because it is simple, light and airy. I love the grey and white colour scheme; it’s a romantic, beachy type feel which I find so beautiful.

What is your number one top tip to consider when buying home interior pieces?

If the room is rather small, measure and if possible, do a floor plan, and include the height of the ceiling and the staircase.

If you were a piece of contemporary or French style furniture what would you be and why?
I would want to be a French Dressing Table full of perfumes, make up and jewellery. Don't forget the ornate French mirror! 

Which room would we find you in at a party?
In the room with the most fun people, even if it's the bathroom!

Which is your favourite room in the showroom?
My favourite room will always be the Versailles Bedroom! I feel like a real princess when I'm in there.

What is your number one top tip to consider when buying home interior pieces?
It doesn't have to match! If you have an antique white French bed, you don't have to decorate and fill the rest of the room with antique white as well. Mix and match your style eras, materials and colours, and as long as there's a good balance of these elements, it’s going to work - be brave!

If you were a piece of contemporary or French furniture what would you be and why?
A smart chesterfield sofa - they sit effortlessly well within any interior scheme from cool modern to nostalgic vintage - and my taste is pretty ‘eclectic’!

Which room would we find you in at a party?
Probably in the dining room at the table with friends - playing cribbage and drinking prosecco!

Which is your favourite room in the showroom?
It has to be the rather crazy-looking office! Striped walls and ceiling, apple green cowhide and bright pink fringed lamps - it sums up what I love most about the French Bedroom Company and its style (sounds like shameless self-promotion but it's true!).

 What is your number one top tip to consider when buying home interior pieces?

To pick pieces that fit with the character of a room. I'm a fan of white products as they show sleekness and style.

If you were a piece of contemporary or French style furniture what would you be and why?
bulldog lamp, because they symbolise class and power! Ha ha ha!

Which room would we find you in at a party?
I’m not a party kind of guy so I’d probably be the doorman!

Which is your favourite room in the showroom?
The room with the Sonos sound system.

 What is your number one top tip to consider when buying home interior pieces?

For larger items always favour classic design and neutral colours so they can be adapted to trends and just use colour for accessories and smaller statement pieces.

If you were a piece of contemporary or French furniture what would you be and why?
An armchair apparently (according to my girlfriend!)

Which room would we find you in at a party? 
Involved in rapturous conversation and much merriment over the dinner table.

Which is your favourite room in the showroom?
The Versailles Bedroom, it has a wonderfully rich quality of light that resonates from the wallpaper and wraps the French bed and furnishings in an exuberant warmth and distinguished air.  (Ooooh Jamie, you should write our copy!!)

What is your number one top tip to consider when buying home interior pieces?
It does not ALWAYS have to match, sometimes a contrasting piece, whether it be in colour or style, can create great interest in a room. 

If you were a piece of contemporary or French style furniture what would you be and why?
A bookshelf because I am full of knowledge, most of which is useful.

Which room would we find you in at a party?
Behind the decks... if not, then wherever the music is playing... and I'll be trying to take over!

Which is your favourite room in the showroom?
I would have to say the hallway, knowing that I am entering what will be a magical experience every time. Every visit to the French Bedroom Company's showroom shows me something that I need to have in my life.
