Old is new again, as Le Côté Français Maison weaves the threads of History into the pattern of your lifestyle.
In a market saturated with mass-produced goods, our one-stop atelier offers couture craftsmanship, exceptional customer service and thoughtful, sustainable design in limited production soft furnishings.
Whether through gusseted accent pillows that contrast baroquely escapist French toile with a Retro-geometric pattern in bold hues worthy of David Hicks’ approval, or reversible linen and velvet throws juxtaposing romantic damask with plaid silk-taffeta, framed in brilliant jewel-toned piping, our pieces punctuate your interior with engaging style.
Our uniquely luxurious Decorative Pillows, Throws, Table Linens, and Bedding combine antique, vintage, and contemporary fabrics with sophisticated verve. By special order, we replicate many of our old textiles to provide you with a full range of coordinating Linens.
