The Palais Collection is our most prestigious collection of luxury French furniture.
Hand made and hand-carved from solid mahogany and adorned with elegant bas relief in a gold leaf patina.
The mildly distressed gold accents over the antiqued ivory are pure Louis XVI style; evoking the grandeur of a Downton Abbey film set, the pieces embrace all that is honoured and adored about French furniture.
The range includes luxurious French beds, French chair, Mirror, Armoire (French wardrobe), Chest of Drawers and Bedside Table.
The reign of Louis XVI was the golden age of French furniture, with an emphasis on straight lines and right angles, craftsmanship and refinement. It is said that the king was influenced by his wife, Queen Marie Antoinette who was responsible for many small pieces of furniture that suited the furnishings of her apartment at Versailles. The greatest charm the Louis XVI period conveys to the modern mind is its informality and the intimacy created by small rooms, light and delicate details.
