We were really pleased to see how beautifully a French Country stool blended into our client's kitchen. Stephanie C. already had two French Country style stools in her kitchen in Kernersville, NC.
The two French Country stools featured a black wash finish and Stephanie needed a third one to match. This is the new counter-height stool that Stephanie chose from our selection of French Country stools at EuroLuxHome.com. Intricate floral and foliage wood carvings across the curvy chair rail and seat apron create a stunning decorative effect. The nice cabriole legs are typical of French Country style, and this stool also boasts a hand-woven rattan or rush seat. The antiqued black washed stain adds the finishing touch!
Below is the French Country stool in Stephanie's kitchen, along with her two existing stools. Thanks Stephanie for sending the photo. I am just drooling over that kitchen – it is gorgeous!
Every detail from the kitchen cabinets to the handsome chandelier is exquisitely chosen. It all adds up to a wonderful example of the traditional French Country look. I like the bright touches of sunny Mediterranean color too, in the mixer on the side counter, the yellow flowers, and the large pitcher above the fridge. The pretty carved shape of the back of the French Country stools makes a very inviting silhouette.
Stephanie said "It is beautiful and a perfect match to my other two! Thanks for the great service!" You can see more detail (left) of the hand-woven rattan seats which give a nice and casual country feel. I'm guessing that Stephanie likes the black wash finish on the stools to match that elegant island counter.
This close-up shows the intricate carving on the stool apron. This is actually the same French Country stool, but with a natural dark wood finish rather than the antiqued black washed stain. Still, you get some idea of the ornately decorative effect.
The company that makes these stools specializes in high-quality Old World furniture designs created with traditional furniture techniques, like detailed carving, banded inlays and dovetail construction on drawers. So it's not surprising that the French Country stool looks so lovely and authentic. Thanks Stephanie for sharing the photos of your to-die-for kitchen!
