FRENCH ANTIQUES FOR SUMMER

 

 

Need a little infusion of French beauty at home?

 

Our latest shipment has arrived at FrenchGardenHouse from our buying trips

 

 

just in time to celebrate summer!

 

 

France at this time of year? A delight for all your senses. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ancient turrets dot the landscape,

 

 

 

making you feel like you are in a fairytale.

 

 

 

 

 

Charming little cafes have bistro tables and chairs outside,

 

 

ready for you  to sit and have a citron presse {lemonade}.

 

 

 

 

If you can’t travel to France this year,

 

 

We’ve shopped the best French dealers for you!

 

 

 

 

The number 1 French antique you asked us to source for you

 

 

for adding to your summer decor –

 

 

ENAMELWARE.

 

 

We found beautiful pieces!

 

 

 

 

 

At one brocante, a dealer had just bought an entire collection from a grande maison

 

and was I excited to buy all of it?

 

 

Bien sûr!

 

That I lucked into a few other pieces at different antique shows and markets?

Just the icing on the cake!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


There is still much more, some wonderful antique enameled French biggins and coffee pots

 

 

in solid colors of blue, mint green and yellow.

 

 

And canister sets. Coming soon – as soon as we’ve photographed them.

 

 

 

 

ENTERTAINING ANTIQUES.

 

 

French antiques you can entertain with outdoors in style are the next

 

most requested on your “get this for me” list you gave us.

 

 

 

Our French bottle carriers are always a #1 seller

 

 

they carry a few bottles, glasses and a snack out to the garden in style.

 

 

 

Metal or wicker –  each one is a storied well-traveled antique.

 

 

 

 

French kitchenware is always on our list of what you love.

 

 

It’s easy to see why, with their charming, original and honest shapes,

 

 

these objects reflect everything we love about the French Country lifestyle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not just for their intended use,

 

 

savvy entertainers are using these storied wood boards to display an array of appetizers.

 

 

 

 

POTTERY.

 

 

Pottery brings life to any space in your home.

 

 

Especially pottery from France, with stories to share.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DECORATIVE ACCENTS.

 

 

Those accent pieces that are unique, just like you and your home.

 

 

 

What’s not to love about this hand carved 19th century dog?

 

 

He {she?!} is just the kind of accent that will make your rooms

 

 

personal, and reflective of your own unique style.

 

 

 

 

 

French pillows and textiles

 

 

to refresh your rooms in one second flat.

 

 

No explanation needed.

 

 

Amazing 19th century tapestry pillow.

 

 

 

And…while we were gone on our trip,

 

 

the 19th century egg and nest chromolithographs I bought

 

 

at auction a while ago arrived from England!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cue the happy dance….

 

We have storied, well traveled antique items to make sure you are living in amazing style.

  1. While the enamelware is not my thing I can appreciate why
    people collect it. They are very decorative items that show off
    themselves placed on a table or elsewhere. I liked the blue textiles
    which would show off very well on display anywhere in a house.
    Regards.
