Wills Furniture – It’s simply the best.

Celebrating the French win in the FIFA World Cup – the very best in French style with Wills Furniture.

French Provincial Furniture as well as furniture influenced by the French Furniture of the classic period, 1600 – 1815, has been popular for over three centuries now.

And in keeping with authenticity, many people now seek reproduction furniture from the era of Louis XIII through to Louis XIV to complete their penchant for the period and its design elements.

The Wills Furniture French Provincial Furniture Collection offers a unique and simply beautiful link to this most ornate of times. The Louis XIII style or Louis Treize was a fashion period in French Architecture and Design influencing all decorative style and art of that time. Louis XIII reigned from 1610 to 1643, it was during this period that luxury furniture was introduced into France, resulting in a more elegant mode of living. There were very strong influences from Germany, Spain and particularly Italy.

Furniture during this period was large, austere and featured low backs which were either square or had greater width than height. The legs were often columnar, knobbed, baluster or spirally turned legs resting on small bun feet.

From Our Collection

Classic Louis XIII French Provincial Settee

french-provincial-louis-xiii-xl

This rather beautiful settee is available in any custom size with option of a fitted back or loose back cushion. It has an exquisite hand carved American Cherry timber frame and can be finished in any colour selected with patina distressing and a waxed finish or a painted or washed finish. Genuine comfort is achieved with sumptuous feather down cushions and a hand tied coil spring back. It is finished in fine double piping detail.

Louis XIV was known as the Sun King, he reigned from 1660 until 1720. His reign saw a style of unparalleled splendour. It was his belief that his home – the Palace of Versailles should reflect the glory, power and wealth of the monarchy in its furniture decor and grounds.

Bergere Chair

french-provincial-bergere-chair-xl

The Bergere Chair features in our Collection and is very popular. It has a hand carved frame from selected timber, with a highly polished finish. It features a traditional French style jute webbed seat and is superbly comfortable with its deep seat and sumptuous feather down cushion.

To finish off this week we take a look at the Charles II Carver Chair

Charles II Carver Chair

french-provincial-carver-xl

Another popular reproduction chair is this classic chair from the Charles II of England period with hand turned spindle legs and stretcher rails. The timber frame can be made from American Cherry or European Beech with the choice of a polished or painted finish. The elegant high back and hand tied, coil sprung seat ensure comfort. The Charles II carver chair style features carved and shaped arms and a generously proportioned seat on turned and carved legs joined by a turned or carved front stretcher.
