The French House has the sort of stock you’d like to discover in France yourself. Most of the furniture is displayed in its original state with two prices: restored and as seen. The on-site workshop has been integrated into the showroom so you can watch the experienced upholsterer at work; for your own piece, you can choose from a selection of lovely French fabrics, exclusive to the shop. A restored 1860s chaise longue will cost around £1,800. Large gilt mirrors are good enough to hang as they are. Thanks to monthly buying trips, there’s always something new and unusual to check out. Pretty 19th-century single bed prices start at £600, more masculine lits bateaux from around £950.
