Versatile Variety of French Antique Stools

French antique seating has always had a touch of class with beautiful ornate detailing and a characterful appearance. The stools especially were beautifully crafted using the finest of the materials. These were often characterised by gilding, intricate marquetry, ornate carving, lacquer, inlaying and gold leaf decorations etc. The look has evolved over the years from elaborate ornamentation and modest curves to straight prominent lines and also the quirkier ones from the vintage world.

At Brownrigg Interiors we have a versatile variety. If you are looking for a piece with modest curves and classic appeal, here is one for you. A wonderful 19th century French walnut stool with an 18th century tapestry upholstered seat. This gorgeous stool perfectly showcases the French old-world character. A perfect option for your hallways or at the foot of the bed maybe?

Now if you want something more casual or rustic, here is a late 19th century early 20th century French walnut and cane stool in the Louis XV taste. This is a perfect combination of the signature curvy legs but with a cane top that tilts it more towards the rustic sides making it a perfect fit for a more casual setup.

A little on the quirky side is this charming pair of mid-20th century rustic stools in Elm. These unique pieces can also be utilised as occasional tables. However you decide to use them though, you can be sure they will most certainly be the highlight of any room.
