About The French Writing Desk

You are a lady of letters, penning your first novel, and what better setting for your spicy memoirs than your own French writing desk. French furniture styles are distinctive due to several traditional elements that exude grace and careful craftsmanship. The cabriole leg is one identifying feature of the style, where the leg curves outward delicately, then inwardly at the bottom to a decorative foot. A Parisian antique writing desk features delicate form, with cabriole legs, scrollwork feet, and gilded trim. Because of its graceful lines and lightness of construction, a ladies' writing desk of Parisian design goes well in the bedroom , library, den, study or even in a living room. French furniture design has been a favorite for both collectors and decorators, whether as true antiques or replicas
