The French Bedroom Company is a one-stop e-shop for people with a taste for glamorous bedroom furniture. As its name suggests, the emphasis is on Gallic designs (think Versailles beds, first picture, from £1,345, Provençal armoires, £1,045, and Antoinette mirrors, £425), but the nine departments contain a good sprinkling of other, more contemporary styles too.
Lighting, for example, features über-cool Dutch label Moooi’s much-admired ironic Rabbit table lamp (£295), while Chairs and Armchairs boasts a seriously on-trend ottoman made from not-very-French-looking Union Jack denim canvas (Shoreditch Ottoman, second picture, £980) and Bed Linen and Rugs the pop-art-inspired Monroe cushion set (£150 for four).
This is a big site, but each piece is clearly photographed and described, so the shopping is easy – as I found to my cost.
