French provincial bathroom vanities differ from Parisian furniture and French Royal furniture. The style comes from the provincial towns of France like Blois, Orleans, Lyon, and Liege. French provincial design holds a cultural identity that is subtlety distinct from styles of the towering metropolis. French provincial is a blend of French, country and rustic styles of decorating. Let’s take a look at some of the key features that identify this antique style.
Key Features of French Provincial Furniture:
- Cabriole legs; dual curves vs bowed legs. Much more elegant and artisanal.
- Scalloped Carvings have light grooves in them similar to the shell of a scallop.
- Wheat Pattern Carving that are reflective of the country surroundings
- An aged patina that is the result of polish and grim building up over time.
- Emphasis on the carving rather than the paint, stain, or finish.
