The charming style of rustic French country decorating is all about a lifestyle, tradition and preserving family heirlooms, blending old with new, rustic with sophisticated, using outdoor as indoor furniture or restyling and painting furniture pieces. It is bringing about relaxed, casual yet very beautiful interiors and exteriors.

At the French Attic we specialise in reproducing and recreating rustic and “informal” French style furniture, accessories and objet’s de art. Our simple, locally made and almost ‘under’ designed manufactured furniture pieces include armoires, dining tables, sofas, coffee tables, garden benches, day beds, desks, chairs, wine racks and various shelves. As a result of this our furniture resembles salvaged items or reworked treasures reminiscent of the past. The idea is to make them either seem spruced up or genuinely fixing up old pieces by painting furniture in antique white finishes or using a plain white wash resulting in a more distressed, used look.

Other pieces are painted with various aging effects incorporating the blues, greens, greys and soft aqua colours of the French countryside. All furniture items can be treated according to indoor or outdoor requirements!
