antique yet modern....
New in at Fabulously French is this fabulous antique quilt or coutil as it is called in French.
It came to us along with a number of other items when a local Chateau was sold and as a result, it's owner is in the process of downsizing to a smaller property.
I adore the fabric and bearing in mind it's age (over 100 years) it is in great condition.
On one side are these fabulous branches and leaves in tones of grey and aubergine.
There are also some patches in an old Toile de Jouy which add to its character, it is after all, an antique piece dating back to the late 18th or very early 19th Century.
It could be displayed on a bed or daybed, or as a wall hanging, or folded into an armoire.
For me, it is very cabbages and roses, hence the title of this post " antique yet modern".
