Many couples choose the french country because of their softer details. French furniture has always been considered high end, and quite formal. Traditional french chairs are often paired with silky fabric such as brocade, and gilt wood finishes. While classic french furniture is very formal, french country styles on the other hand are often less serious. They have the beautiful frames that are seen with classic french furniture, but are paired with cotton fabrics, and linens giving it a lived in feel.
