French Treasures

While scouring antique markets last week, we were on a mission for French influenced accessories to set up our new fall trend room in our store. We love to mix the glitzy crystal with the old worn woods, old marble, and faded etchings. We were lucky to find several old prints with great European scenes. A gilded mirror with raised roses on the border could be a great plateau for the center of a dining table. Antique wine bottles in crates will be a great addition for someones wine cellar.
Our favorite find was the drippy candelabra made of old lamp and chandelier parts - absolutely stunning! Imagine using them outside in a vine covered courtyard as dusk begins. Is there anything more romantic!
