French Heritage owners Jacques and Henessy Wayser
gave us a thorough tour of their showroom at Fall Market.  Since their inception French Heritage has brought classic French design to the industry.  This market, they showcased notable new pieces incorporating a modern take on these classic wares, and all combine well together in a home.  Note the patchwork over dye rug I spotted in the showroom, a modern take on a classic design. 
The Surene bed from French Heritage's Maison Collection shows classic design in its best light with a carved top and a beautiful hand rubbed finish
 classic chair with a twist, adjoining or used apart

Congratulations to French Heritage for being featured in Traditional Home magazine here.  Interior designer Michelle Workman utilized their pieces for her room in last spring's Junior League Highpoint Showhouse.  Please look for Workman's new collection with French Heritage, which will debut next Spring Market.
