This Week's Favorite Floor Items - Two French Heritage Pieces

Life is getting back to normal here at Carolina Rustica after our acquisition by Mattress USA last month.   It was an exciting time, preparing to become part of this great Michigan-based company which is one of the largest online mattress dealers in the United States.   They also have great mid-level furniture business which neatly compliments ours high-end suppliers, allowing us to offer hundreds of product lines accounting for all tastes, styles and budgets.

To get back on track, however, I want to mention two awesome in-store clearance items we have here in our showroom at Gibson Mill.   These are pieces from our soon-to-be-a-supplier, French Heritage, which is one of the most recognized names in French reproduction furniture today.   Started 20 years ago by Jacques and Henessey Wayser, this company is iconic for high-end authentic designs from Louis Phillipe, to 18th Century, to Provencal. In 1993, the company debuted the popular Maison Provence collection, a grouping of antique French country designs. The next year, they introduced their high-end collection, De Bournais, beautifully handcrafted furniture with beeswax finishes. In 1995, two limited edition collections were launched: Camelot, inspired by the French furnishings found in the White House and Country Club, reminiscent of the great country manor homes.

The Beaulieu Coffee Table is certainly one of the most stately pieces here on our showroom floors. This French Heritage Coffee Table features cabriole legs and shaped aprons in a solid wood top.  All these features make this elegantly enchanting cocktail table a hard-to-resist piece, with its well-defined grander and chic French styling.  The medium-tone slightly washed finish is complimented by cast brass feet, which is very unusual.  Its also got a great size, measuring 49 in. W x 32 in. D x 20 in. H..   Best of all, since this is a showroom floor sample, we can offer this item for just $1,100.00, more than 60% off retail.  

The other French Heritage piece is also an heirloom for the future. The French Heritage Twisted Louis Rectangular Dining Table is crafted from Solid Reclaimed Teak with a rustic Natural Finish.  It is absolutely the best of the "French Farmhouse" look, made by the masters themselves.  The table has gentle arched legs a solid wood plank top, with light distressing and a textured top.   This beautiful table measures 79 in. W x 39 in. D x 31 in. H..   You can just imagine how it would look in your Provencal kitchen, surrounded by exposed wood and brick, copper pots, wrought iron skillets and hanging nets of dried herbs and spices.  Of course, since this is a floor model, we are offering this table at  $1,320.00, about 65% off the regular sales price.   We only have one in stock, so once it goes, it goes.   But that is the great thing about our floor sample sales...they are truly one-of-a-kind offerings!
