French country lighting is a timeless style that creates a warm and elegant feel in homes rural and urban alike. Natural materials, rustic finishes, and traditional elements of the French country style create a familiar and welcoming appearance.
Characteristics of French Country Lighting
Defining characteristics of French country lights lie in the materials and finishes of each fixture. Two materials most commonly used are wood and iron. These materials are often left unfinished or have a finish that displays the organic texture of the material such as weathered or patinaed. French country lighting generally features a flame shaped bulb to reference the candles that were once the main source of lighting in old-country-living.
Frech Country Style
While popular design trends focus mainly on a French country kitchen, this cozy style can be carried throughout the entire home.
