The 18th century is renowned amongst furniture fans for its opulent French designs, many of them named after the reigning monarchs of the time. Taillardat seeks to continue this tradition of French excellence in craftsmanship and design with its own range of furniture, inspired by this elegant period in France’s history. The taillardat.fr internet site offers an at-a-glance overview of the many models on offer: console tables, chairs, sofas, chests of drawers, desks, armchairs, beds and many other types of furniture are on display.
All designs are crafted by skilled workers who boast an absolute mastery of their particular trade whether it’s gilding, upholstery, varnishing, cabinet making or leather casing. Every room in the house is catered to. Perhaps you’d like a fine Louis xv desk in Cherrywood or Mahogany for the study? There are also tables suitable for use beside the bed, for dining purposes or for general all-round use, such as this low lounge table, the Victor ronde, pictured below. This lovely item is made from Mahogany and sports a beautiful bronze trim.
