Shabby Chic All Grown Up.

Looking through a website on installing water features in outdoor gardens, I was distracted by a banner ad for fine reproduction French furniture (and I typically never ever click on side bar ads!). Sweetpea & Willow of London offers an online retail store (plus international shipping from the UK) for quality, reproduction classic French furniture at unbelievably low prices. Now, I’m not a shabby chic kind of gal. I prefer more clean, comfortable and eclectic spaces, however, I find the designs showcased at this online store somehow deceptively familiar, pretty, a bit more grown up, and shall we say tres magnifique! Here I go on my France kick again. Whether gorgeous or too garish, I have bookmarked this site for future reference and possibly some minor shopping. Here’s what I would put into my shopping cart today.

The French Petite Bookcase is stunning! and is available in a slew of finishes. $3,400
