Paris is always a good idea. Grange, the furniture company known for their hand-crafted French furniture, is celebrating 110 years, and in honor of that, is holding a design contest. So what does the lucky winning blogger get for creating a winning tableau? Grange will be sending a lucky contest winner and one of their loyal blog readers to Paris in January to attend Maison Objet, the trend-illuminating trade show, as well as a factory tour and visit to the Grange HQ in Lyon, France. I have created a vignette, shown above, around one of their best-selling pieces, the Directoire Console Cabinet. Building a scheme around the custom painted teal Paon blue piece, I chose to focus on blue and white and the allure of Neo Classical design, bringing in pattern and texture around the historically-inspired piece. I invite you to vote on my vignette by going to the Grange Furniture Inc Facebook page and liking my vignette there. Voting continues from today throughout the month, so I hope you will show your support by participating and YOU could be the one that comes avec moi to Paree! Paris is a compelling destination any time of year, but escaping dreary New York City in January sounds like the best thing ever.

To celebrate 110 years of crafted furniture making, Grange has created a beautifully styled assortment of vignettes that will appear in House Beautiful. With over 75 wood and paint finishes , the customized color choices are seemingly endless. Pictured above, their City tableau features a zippy red cabinet with brushed nickel hardware.
