The Furniture Room
Fantastic Vintage Furniture - Meet Sue!
Sue moved to France in 2006 taking on, a not insubstantial, property (near Lauzerte) in need of love and attention. Previously and for many years, Sue and her partner Paul had been in the restaurant business in Cheshire; so moving to France was a real ‘life-changer’ for the pair.
Sue, who’s an obvious eye for style and interiors found that the main problem with sorting out their home was that it was very difficult to source good, relevant, solid furniture. So the idea was born – The Furniture Room.
Specialising in vintage furniture, this is not just a shop – indeed it is only open to the public for browsing on Wednesday afternoons from 2pm – 6pm or by appointment Or you can attend one of Sue’s ‘Browse’ (sometimes with wine) dos. You can find details of upcoming events on The Furniture Room’s Facebook page. Importantly, Sue can also source items for you, so if you’ve a need for something specific for a special place do give Sue a call.
The furniture is sourced, half and half, between the United Kingdom and here in France with the help of Sue’s friends Julia and Alan, also from Cheshire. Items are renovated as necessary and painted, using Farrow and Ball paints, where appropriate. The furniture in Sue’s Furniture Room are pieces with great character crying out for a place in the many lovely old houses around the region.
As well as furniture Sue has also sourced some great accessories from cushions, storage and wine boxes, signs, hooks, brackets and lovely gift ideas for any ‘home-lover’.
There’s to be a pre-Christmas open day (or two) during November - a great chance to get some ideas together for gifts or a treat for yourself and even enjoy a very early festive drink. To ensure that you get details of this please visit and like The Furniture Room’s Facebook page so that details of events and new stock are sent your way.
With the obvious risk of repeating ourselves. This magazine exists to support and share information about businesses such as these. We love initiative and we hope that all our readers realise that enterprise like this gives the region we love – added depth, joy and character.
