French Style Room

This French paneled room is one of four period designs that we are producing "off the shelf" - well sort of

North Elevation

A carved moulding of French style acanthus leaves forms the cornice while two carved paneled doors flank a side table and mirror. The hand carved side table can be made in different sizes, is optional, or can be adapted to become a desk. The whole elevation is of wood with typically styled French hand carved panels.

East Elevation

Two bookcases are placed on either side of the beautifully carved central panel with an optional but luxurious table that can be adapted into a desk. Further bookcases can be placed in other parts of the room to make this space a library - or removed altogether to create a bedroom - with a French styled bed and side tables possibly?

South Elevation

A French styled side table and mirror matching the north elevation are placed between glass doors which are crowned with French style valances. The window treatment can be supplied by us if desired. The whole elevation is of wood with hand carved wood panels and acanthus cornice.

West Elevation

Beneath the wood carved acanthus cornice the complete elevation is decorated with exquisitely hand carved French panels. The French style fire surround can be flat or in a Bombay shape and especially carved in wood or marble. And with the help of modern science, the overmantel can conceal a television behind the glass mirror - press a button and the television can be seen through the mirror - all part of the service!
