Despite the temperamental nature of our weather this April, we decided that it was time to think spring and put together a sale of French Garden Antiques for one month only on our second floor.
On our last buying trip to France we found some great pieces, dining tables in various sizes and sets of chairs, plus a group of tiered plants stands to display pots of flowers.
What is so appealing about Antique French garden furniture is, that in addition to be very sturdy and practical, it brings with it a sense of history.
You can almost imagine countless lunches and dinners under the shelter of ancient trees in Provence, or a lazy afternoon by the pool.
As time passes each piece acquires a great patina than can only come from age and exposure to the elements. Highlights of this years sale include a great oval dining table big enough to seat eight to ten people and a set of garden chairs circa 1900 with traces of old paint, an Arras tables with lions paw feet, and a charming white garden bench.
Hopefully these pieces will inspire you to go out and buy a good bottle of rose in preparation for that first alfresco feast!
