About French Provincial Furniture
Furniture made in provincial centers such as Blois & Orleans in the Loire valley, and at Lyon or Liege, followed at some distance the design innovations that were initiated in the luxury trades of Paris.
Features associated with French Provincial furniture include scalloped carving. Dining chairs usually have a wheat pattern carving reflecting the culture surroundings of the maker. The ladder back chair with a woven seats are the typical French Provincial dining chairs. Finishes vary though all colours and accumulation of polish or grime in the carving over time resulting in an aged effect on the carving of the furniture piece.
