Antique & Vintage "One of a Kind" Pieces French Country Furniture. Eloquence sources Antique & Vintage pieces throughout Europe and French Colonial areas. Pieces range in age from the Late 18th Century to the mid 1900's.
With space at a premium in populated parts of the world, more and more beautiful Old Buildings & Villas are being pulled down to make way for modern apartment complexes. These are our treasure chests where we can save hand carved doors, hand forged & riveted Iron Gates, Crystal Chandeliers, old Mirrors and Sconce wall lighting.
We hunt for Classic pieces with original patinas, especially Louis XV, Louis XVI and French Provincial Designs. We love and appreciate old aged pieces, that are worn back to the wood, and distressed from years of sunlight, love and everyday household use.
All of our vintage pieces are stripped of their original fabrics and upholstered in a neutral 100% Cotton canvas duct. This is intended as an intermediate fabric.
On occasion Eloquence will re-finish pieces if they are unable to be restored to near original condition. Our Painted Vintage Pieces are painted in an Eloquence color to enhance their original shape and line. All finishes are hand applied to preserve the vintage elements of the pieces and to maintain a rich worn patina.
Eloquence Antique Reproduction Line
The Pieces we make are reproductions of some of our favorite old finds.
Eloquence Reproduction pieces are skillfully hand carved in Beachwood and constructed by traditional Mortis & Tenon joinery. Our Pieces are constructed without bolts or mechanical processes.
Paint finishes are applied by hand and then artistically rubbed back to resemble a smooth natural wear & tear finish. An oil based stain is used to seal and age the water-based paint finish. All of these steps ensure that our pieces are all individual, and will age to be the antiques of tomorrow.
The Louis XV is recognized by its serpentine cabriole leg.
The Louis XVI is recognized by its fluted straight leg.
These pieces are upholstered in an off white cotton duct/canvas (heavy, plain woven 100% cotton fabric) that is intended as a designer upholstery finish (not a final upholstery fabric) the fabric is unbleached and will have minor imperfections in its weave, this adds to the vintage look and feel of the product. Our Seat Cushions consist of foam and fibre fill, they can be dry Cleaned.
Eloquence water based Paint Finish Colors
In choosing our palette we were inspired by the grace and subtly of Marie Antoinette's Villa escape, La Petit Trianon. Built in the Gardens of Versailles, the colors of the rooms are muted with age and provide a wonderful feeling of faded grandeur.
