Let's be real: We'd all love to decorate more like the French. In Parisian apartments that are already flooded with charm and history, it doesn't take much to make these interiors the envy of all. But beyond the French doors, intricate cornices, and herringbone floors, there is something else the French do better than anyone: mixing classic French furniture with modern staples and personal pieces.

How do the French achieve this effortlessly elegant decorating style so well? It all starts with a collection of heirlooms. The French have a mentality of "don't fix anything that's not broken," and they pass on furniture pieces from generation to generation. The result is a curated look of pieces from all periods and styles. Want to get the look? We rounded up some of the most iconic French furniture you'll find in Parisian homes everywhere.
