Jean-Christophe has over 25 years experience in creating interiors that exude a unique mix of French provincial casual elegance and warmth. Trained as a craftsman in the south of France, carving and polishing Louis and French style furniture, Jean-Christophe is happy to bring his passion for quality and style to your home.
He offers a total French interior design service from floors, window and wall dressing as well as colour and fabric selection. He will personally select and design furniture especially for you. To complete your setting Jean-Christophe will also select the chandeliers and wall lights for the right lighting to enhance each room.
"For many years I worked on restoring old stone farmhouses in the south of France, this gave me a real understanding of what gives the warm, casual elegance the provincial style is sought for", says Jean-Christophe
His extensive experience enables him to deliver a concept for the whole house within a few hours. Contact us to find out more about our design visit. We regularly offer specials on first design visits. Jean-Christophe is available for both domestic and commercial projects.
The best way to get an idea of his interiors is to watch the videos of interiors and the slideshow if interiors available on this website.
Over the past 25 years Christophe Living has developed and sourced a wide range of products to achieve the complete French provincial look.
The furniture styles are designed in such a way that they can be combined to achieve a stylish, yet individual look. The range of finishes, fabrics and other options, all ensure that each piece is unique to you and customised for your home.
Over the years we have refined each element of our selection down to the smallest of detail. For our timber finishes, we still use shellac and hand-rubbed beeswax for that soft French antique finish. We use gesso and hand-brushed techniques for our painted finishes to evoke the typical French country look and feel. We can also match a finish to your special requirement.
The timbers we use are European beech, oak and cherry wood. All our furniture is polished and upholstered in Australia; most of the carved components are imported from Italy and the Mediterranean countries.
Jean-Christophe will personally ensure your selection of french provincial furniture works well for your requirements and for your home.
