House in Provence

You would think this house was in the South of France, maybe 5 min walk from the Cote Bastide shop but no, the owners are in Spain and were inspired by farmhouses they had seen in Provence during their trips to France. I think they've done a wonderful job!

The chairs above are vintage Tolix.
The original chair was designed by Xavier Pauchard in 1934 for Tolix, a French company that manufactures its own products and distributes in France and abroad. Initially, these chairs were widely supplied to French bars and brasseries by breweries in exchange for selling their beer but this arrangement ended in the 1970s. The chairs were reissued in 1986 and are now seriously sought-after. You can get new ones from Conran and get vintage ones from Petersham Nurseries
The wooden tables can easily be made by a local carpenter. We did something similar to our house in France

Get the look with the daybed from Cote Bastide

or this beautiful patinized Cote Bastide clothes rail

And add little touches with these lovely beakers, or this willow basket (1 left in stock) and these pretty pure linen bags to hang. My favourite is this beautiful XVIII Stoup which is a reproduction of an original font for holy water placed at the entrance of a French Church.
