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 auspicious 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 until the introduction of this new style under Louis XIII 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…

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


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.
