Before the French Revolution, the aristocracy lived in huge mansions that featured extensive gardens showcasing elegant sculpted fountains and classic Greek garden statues. The beauty of the surrounding gardens was matched on the inside of those mansions with gorgeous hand-carved wooden furniture, exquisite tapestries, and paintings presented in gilded frames. Walking into such homes was probably like entering a museum housing a fantastic collection of objets d'art, antiques, and fine decor in every room. Although rather few people still actually reside in French chateaux, several of those grand old homes have actually been converted into museums that showcase much of the same beautiful furniture and decor that was admired by their original inhabitants.
Chateau furniture in particular looks simply fantastic. Instead of average, everyday chairs or tables, we have furniture that has been hand-carved from rich, beautiful Mahogany. The upholstery itself is a stunning work of art that features coats of arms, Medieval designs, and other heraldic patterns. In short, the furniture looks fit for a king and indeed it had to be just in case members of the royal family paid a visit. While the days of noble visits and aristocracy are long gone, we make it possible to decorate the dining room with the same types of beautiful Medieval French furniture. The Chateau DuMonde Coat of Arms Dining Chairs are exquisite replicas of 17th century furniture that graces the hallways of old, French chateaux. Put a set of these chairs around the table to make you and your guests feel like royalty.
