Maria Antoinette Chateau Collection
The Marie Antoinette Chateau Collection is our most prestigious collection of French furniture. Hand made and hand-carved and adorned with elegant bas relief in a gold leaf patina. The mildly distressed gold accents over the antiqued crackle-patina ivory is pure Louis XVI style. This French Chateau Furniture embraces all that is honoured and adored about French furniture.
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
