    Chateau Fontaine Collection

The Chateau Fontaine Collection of bedroom furniture evokes the era of 19th century France when the absolutism of the monarchy gave way to the rise of the “Citizen King,” Louis Phillipe. Perhaps the most distinctive element of the Louis Phillipe style in furniture is the wide ogee mouldings (called “doucine”) used under tops and as bases on cases. These mouldings were often curved on the sides as well, giving a sense of flow to the tops and mouldings. Feet and brackets terminated in scrolls. Hardware was used sparingly and consisted primarily of metal escutcheons or keyholes on the faces of doors and drawers which are generally inset, rather than lipped. Its clean simple lines defy categorization which is why it seems both sophisticated and country. This collection is a testament of the craftsman’s art and is equally at home in both formal and more casual décor. The Chateau Fontaine collection is available in our 25+ finishes.
