French style Provincial furniture was originally made in provincial centers such as Blois and Orléans in the Loire valley, and at Lyon.
It is a long standing furniture style that always add class to any room. Features typically associated with French Provincial furniture include cabriole legs, and simple scalloped carving. Finishes vary though common to all colours is the accumulation of polish or grime in the carving over time resulting in an aged patina and emphasis on the carving regardless of whether the furniture is painted or stained.
Characterised by artistically carved timber, Provincial style features linen or velvet fabrics on sofas, armchairs and ottomans, classic french style consoles, industrial furniture, elegant french provincial bedside tables and chests.
The French Provincial seems to have become a "loose term" in modern furniture trading.
