Effortlessly chic and timelessly classic, the French country look is never out of fashion. This month, we celebrate Gallic charm with a romantic photoshoot filled with authentic French antiques, giving you plenty of ideas for your own home. We also take you behind the scenes of a momentous sale in Paris, and tour six of the best brocante destinations in France – all perfect for a shop and stroll. We visit four beautiful homes brimming with inspiration, from an apartment in Bordeaux with views of the cathedral, to a serene farmhouse in Cornwall. Plus, in the spotlight this issue is the revolutionary Anglepoise lamp – a true icon of style and engineering.
