I was lucky enough to visit an antique store at The Factory in Franklin, TN this weekend and I was incredibly inspired. The antique booths were filled with high end furniture, pictures, books, china, silver sets, and more fresh from the drawing rooms of Europe.
One great thing about this antique store was that the furniture was so well preserved it looked brand new (rustic furniture is nice, but shabby isn't my thing). And the other great thing is that you can actually furnish your home for about the same price as going to a brand new furniture store, incredible huh?
I am always a fan for using antiques in your home. It's a great way to invest your money and also to preserve history.
Here are some french antiques, rooms and garden items I came across (not at the store, but online) that are simply stunning:
