Country <div>FRENCH COUNTRY / FRENCH PROVINCIAL</div><div>Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, the very best furniture craftsmen in France worked in Paris. Competition for the available positions was fierce. Pieces found today that are marked with signatures from Parisian workshops are recognized as being of very high quality. However, quite a lot of furniture production also occurred outside of Paris in rural villages throughout France. Furniture makers often found apprenticeships with craftsmen far from their homes so they could bring innovative styles and increased knowledge back to their villages. Although loosely based on the styles of Louis XV and Louis XVI, provincial furniture makers developed their own interpretation of these styles, which tended to have more of a rustic charm. They often worked in oak, walnut and cherry. Chairs, especially with a ladder back design, commonly had rush-bottoms rather than upholstery.</div>
