Since it’s opening, Christophe Living has developed a wide range of products to allow you to achieve the complete French provincial look.Taking elements from the Louis XV and Louis XVI style our furniture has been designed so that you can achieve that perfect French look. The range of finishes, fabrics and customisation options ensure that each piece is unique to you, allowing you to create an individual style for you home.Our furniture is made from European beech, oak and cherry wood. For the timber finishes we use shellac and hand-rubbed beeswax and for the painted finishes we use gesso and hand-brushed techniques and we can also match a finish to your special requirement. All of our furniture is polished and upholstered in Australia and the hand-carved components have been flown in from trusted workshops in Italy and the Mediterranean.Jean-Christophe always personally ensures that your selection of French provincial furniture works well for you and your home.
