The France and Son Story
The France and Son story began over 5 years ago when a young husband, (lets call him Mr France) opened up an online shop and searched for good quality mid century furniture. He loved the simple designs and fine craftsmanship but could not afford to buy some of the very high priced vintage pieces and those mid century pieces were also hard to come by. So he started to search for quality factories overseas that were making reproductions of some of the mid century antiques that he loved so much. Sharing his love for mid century furniture and contemporary high design with the public meant distributing his finds directly to the public at wholesale direct prices. Starting on a shoe string budget in the middle of the great depression was a struggle but great quality and world class customer service kept his customers loyal and coming back.
It was at this time that their new mission statement was formed – to set the trend in replica and original designs, providing the opportunity for everyone to create homes and spaces with an edge and at a budget that everyone could afford. Good design should not come at a high price but rather with a keen eye.
With a strong focus on quality and a love of quirky and eye-catching designs, Mr France expanded the France and Son team to several more staff members that were all as passionate about design as he was. Today, they are proud to be a family business with one store in Chelsea, New York and a state of the art e-commerce store. This has enabled France and Son to become a market leader of quality furnishings that make people happy everyday.

Unique and Exclusive High Quality Products
You’ll be hard pressed to find many of our products anywhere else. Most of our stock is made exclusively for us or supplied by from niche, thriving companies who are put to the test by our rigorous quality control standards. Even our reproductions are often different and continually prove to be better than the rest in quality and construction of material. While many products will look the same online, every detail from the inner construction, stitching, fabric or leather to the wood or metal that is used will stand us apart from look-a-likes. While we might be slightly higher priced than the low end companies, rest assured that our prices are absolutely honest and transparent for the product that you will be receiving from France and Son. The value we provide is in the quality that we deliver.
