Image De France Classical Collections
An appreciation for beauty....

The quintessential French appreciation for beauty and fine art has often been perceived as overly formal. However, the move towards french style shows recognition that some of the rich shapes are actually filled with warmth that adds to the elegance we strive for.

Australians have an enduring love for beautiful home and quality of design. In terms of furniture, French antiques are unparalleled in the world, so it's not surprisingly to find many Australians are now exquisitely decorating their homes in formal French style.

Throughout the Image De France Gallery you'll find that the atmosphere is truly amazing. Delicate porcelain sevres, antique clocks and pure bronze figures rest upon intricately hand carved cabinets while classical paintings line the walls. The ceilings are filled with beautiful and elegant chandeliers which reflect style and personality, creating a breathtaking focal point for your favourite room.

All our French furniture is hand crafted and hand carved in detail. We specialise in period style pieces ranging from Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI to Louis Philippe and Empire style pieces. All the gilding is of highest quality. We customise fabrics, marble colours, and to some extent sizing to be able to supply you with the best fitting pieces for your home.

Many pieces within the gallery have a story that stretches from one of the most artistic and opulent periods in French history, to present day Australia. The sense of occasion that this creates within the gallery is met with an appreciation for the commitment required in sourcing and bringing these pieces together.

All gold gilding is done by using 18 or 24 karat gold paper. Not all products are listed on this web site, so if you canít find what you are looking for, please contact our friendly and helpful staff, and we will go out of our way in trying to assist you with sourcing reproduction or antique pieces world wide.

George Manoly, an architect and founder of Image De France started the business to fulfil his passion for high quality hand carved French style furniture. With his skilful interpretations and the close relationship he has with the craftsmen, the result is unparalleled. These beautiful designs elevate the spirit of the maker and the people who see it.

George with his team of dedicated craftsmen, continues to give Australian homes a unique touch of Paris. Combining his 30+ year interior design and architectural background, George provides a comprehensive design consultation.

So come and wander through our gallery, we have something to liven up every room in your house.

Furthermore, you can even just stop in for a coffee and indulge in the elegant ambiance of our French style cafe.

See you soon,
