OH LA LA … C’EST CHIC! FRENCH HERITAGE AT HIGH POINT
Celebrating old friends, new beginnings, chic furnishings, and great vibes at High Point’s Fall Market
Fashion (naturally), drama (essential), and quirky classics (no one wants to live in a museum) are the themes at the French Heritage showroom this fall. More than 60 new additions to the Avenue and Maison lines—from harlequin-painted splendor to steel-riveted cubism—carry forth the practicality, versatility, comfort, and craftsmanship that are this company’s hallmark.
“We’ve had so much fun getting ready for market, using lots of color, gold and black, unexpected details, and fanciful classic pieces that could wake up Louis XV,” laughs company vice-president Henessy Wayser. “Adding a fun modern twist to a beautiful classic gives fresh new personality to the piece and makes furniture exciting again.”
This old-meets-new motif plays out in other ways, too. French Heritage has renewed its early collaborations with esteemed French manufacturer Richelieu Furniture and award-winning designer Michel Koehl. The past is everyone’s heritage, and this happy reunion is producing furniture that both embodies the elegance and grace of classical pieces and reflects the change in decorative fashion from less formality to more comfort.
The new Ferault Group for the well-priced but still fashion forward Maison collection also looks forward and back. Its bold steel and cherrywood designs with distinctive hardware capture a vintage industrial chic that transforms commercial elements into striking designs for the home.
Savor an aesthetic that pushes the boundaries of never-fall-out-of favor classics October 22–27 at the French Heritage Chateau, 1638 English Road in High Point. While there, enjoy breakfast, lunch, or an apéritif at the French Heritage Bistro.
