French Provincial Furniture
The provincial furniture styles of the French countryside mirrored those of the Louis XV and Louis XVI royal court in Versailles, albeit with more restraint. Despite its more humble background, today you'll find French provincial furniture decorating luxury five-star hotels and Michelin-rated restaurants because, the style embodies sophistication and class while doing away with the gold-gilded pretension of its royal cousin. That's not to say that each doesn't have its own place, however, the provincial style does have the flexibility of fitting in in both formal and more casual settings (shabby chic being one example). Laurel Crown proudly reproduces antique French provincial furniture styles that will make any room in your home look stunning. Select which type of furniture or room you are interested in below:

One of the distinctives of French country furniture are the many white, cream, and pastel-colored painted finishes you’ll find in different provinces. While the courts of Louis XV and XVI adorned their palaces with striking gold-leaf and fine inlaid marquetry work, provinces such as Lyon and Orleans (which New Orleans is named after) directed their focus to softer and lighter painted colors, sometimes even mixing the paints with dirt to produce wonderfully complex earthy tones. In addition to offering these finishing options through our customization services, Laurel Crown also reproduces our French country dining chairs and dining tables with the option of distressed finishes. The distressing not only gives the appearance of a well-loved antique, but also draws attention to the style’s modest rural origins where this furniture was not just formal decoration, but used on a day to day basis.

What people say about us
I just received my custom order curio cabinet this morning and it is exquisite! Excellent quality, beautiful detail, and simply beautiful. It takes a little time to have a custom piece made, but it was well worth the wait to get exactly what you want and excellent quality for no more than you'd pay at many mass market furniture chains.
I contracted Laurel Crown to make 2 custom arm chairs to match my wife's set of antique balloon back dining room chairs. I sent cell phone pictures and then measurements that they requested with a detailed drawing. From this info they made my chairs. You would have to look very closely to realize that these chairs were not part of the set! I was quite frankly surprised that they matched so well and am very pleased with the result. Companies like this are hard to find these days.
Service that I was given was Superb . I wanted solid wood tables but I needed them a little larger than the standard length. I was notified when changes happened regarding my order. This company has the best customer service that I have ever been involved with when it comes to purchasing furniture. Trust me you will be blown away by their impeccable, top notch quality and service. Three words Awesome Awesome Awesome!
I usually don't write reviews since I purchase so many items/furniture for my job online. However, this company gave such great customer service I thought it was important to share. I needed two Chippendale Chairs in a very short amount of time. When I called I did not expect they could meet this demand. Laurence was so wonderful on the phone, he said he would call me back after double checking to see if it was possible. He called me within 15 mins and said they could meet my deadline. Every question I had he answered quickly and alleviated any worries I had; He even remembered my name when I called back. You rarely find customer service that goes above and beyond! The chairs arrived on time and were packed very well and constructed nicely. I plan on using this company in the future and would recommend them to my friends. What a wonderful experience! Thank you Laurel Crown :)
We received our Mahogany Pedestal Dining Table at our vacation house this past week and it is absolutely beautiful! The quality of the wood is outstanding, the construction is world class and the finish is lovely. And, the price of the table coupled with the quality is a true value. Thank you once more for your excellent communications, great service and timely delivery. We plan on buying more pieces in the future!
