French Style Design Furniture With A Twist

French style design furniture with a twist – literally!

I always love to see beautiful modern furniture pieces that have been inspired by the designs of the past. Great imagination and artistic flair can achieve something truly stunning that fits in beautifully with modern trends. Inspiration for this Nicky Haslam collection has been taken from French eighteenth century design. All of the pieces are made from ‘weathered acacia’ and upholstered in 100% natural linen. All are available from OKA Direct.

Cordon Bois Stool

These cordon bois stools (what a great name!) with lovely twisted rope detail are part of this collection.  Such a great idea to place two at the end of the bed – useful and of course very stylish. Easy to lift one at a time for cleaning purposes and if you want to ring the changes, just rearrange them.

Cordon Bois Ottoman

If the stools don’t appeal to you then there is always the trusty ottoman. Same twisted rope frame and natural linen upholstery but used here as a fabulous feature in the living room. I think this one needs to be seen rather than being tucked away in a bedroom. What do you think?

Cordon Bois Armchair
These armchairs are just stunning. One on its own would look great in the bedroom and two placed either side of a stylish table in the hall or living room would look simply majestic. The beautiful coloured cushions (which are not included) certainly set them off a treat.  Never mind a twist in the tale, we now have a twist in the legs!
