|THE FRENCH WAY WITH DESIGN
by Betty Lou Phillips
“The French have been a force within the decorating world ever since Louis XIV swung open the gilded gates leading to his father’s once modest hunting lodge—refashioned into the sumptuous Château de Versailles—in the late seventeenth century. . .But for some time now, gentrification has been freeing classique French furniture from its historically formal association, mostly in revived neighborhoods of the capital closest to the center of the city.”
