Fabulous French Shabby Chic Style
French Shabby Chic is a favorite decorating style because it combines the seductive shapes and curves of popular French furniture pieces with fresh fabrics and chippy painted finishes for a look that feels both sophisticated and cozy. French Shabby Chic is "tres a la mode" these days as so many people like to have at least one painted and distressed French piece in their home that appears time-worn. Painted and distressed French furniture pieces seem to tell a story and truly make a home look and feel charming and inviting. The dining room is one of the most popular areas to decorate in French Shabby Chic style. This French farmhouse table with a rustic white washed wood top and distressed white base looks lovely with the white distressed cane back chairs and loose fitted linen seat skirts. This table is meant for cozy gatherings with friends!
French Shabby Chic armoires are beautiful statement pieces that combine traditional carvings with painted and distressed finishes for a dreamy look. These armoires have an array of uses throughout the home, serving not only as extra closet space but also as entertainment centers, kitchen cabinets and linen storage.

French consoles, accent tables and nightstands that are painted and distressed in the shabby chic style are just dreamy! Take a look at these tables that have layer upon layer of paint that is lovingly distressed at each stage to create an aged, time-worn look. While distressed white is the traditional shabby chic color, hues of blue, teal and green are also popular - and mixing white with one or more colors is a shabby chic favorite.
