Jean-Christophe is always there to help you with selecting the right finishes and fabric for your piece.

French painted range

As painted French furniture has become so popular in recent years we have decided to offer a full range of French style painted furniture. We have a standard range in both the Louis XV style as well as the Louis XVI style with its elegant neoclassical lines.
These can be finished in any colour, with or without contrasting trim as well with gilded touches and trim. All of these pieces can be done in any size and we welcome custom variations. We are also happy to develop new designs for you.

Built-in range

In addition to our stand-alone pieces of furniture, we offer expert services in built-in furniture. Whether you are simply looking for a storage solution or want to create an entire custom library, we have the specialist know-how to meet your needs.

Imported exclusive range

To cater for a variety of tastes we also are the exclusive importers of a large range of timber polished furniture ranges, mostly imported from the US. These are not customisable but we are happy to discuss your needs and research the best selection and value for you.

Custom finishes, paints & timber

We offer a wide variety of timber and painted finishes. In timber you can choose between a light walnut or dark walnut finish. With painted finishes you can choose the level of antiquing whether it be a light patina or heavier patina. Christophe Living is also the specialists in custom finishes, so your furniture can be in any colour, tone or texture you want with any level of rub-though or antiquing. You may want French blue with white trim, or white with grey trim or a even a touch of gold – any finish is possible. Talk to us about the look you like and our in-house artisans can make custom samples to show you different effects and options.

Instead of designing around standard units I make the design individual and as a reflection of the styles in the home.

Beautiful fabric selection

We stock the finest selection of European fabrics for you to choose from. You can upholster your furniture in any fabric. Feel free to pop into our Double Bay shop to see our fabric range. If required we even paint fabric in original designs especially for you.
