The taillardat.fr online shop is a must for anyone wanting to imbue their house with some French chic in the shape of beautifully-crafted items of furniture in the style of the 18th and 19th centuries. Pieces like the Marie Antoinette deskand various Louis XVI-inspired designs are fashioned in a range of fine woods such as mahogany, cherry, walnut and oak. Most desks have leather top surfaces, bronze decorative touches and gilding to add a more opulent touch. Many feature lockable drawers to keep your personal effects safe and sound.
If you’re looking for a table to suit a more confined space such as a corridor or a foyer area, then the console style (see below) will do nicely. Available with wood or marble tops, console tables are unobtrusive but still have space for small items, ornaments, keys etc. Many models boast a lower shelf and a drawer. Styles range from Regency to Restoration and Louis XVI to Empire (including the Carlotta model shown below). The main body of the tables is made from mahogany, beech or cherrywood, with bronze trim and decorative flourishes completing the picture.
