Set up by Caroline and Bryan Mason, Rue des Fontenelles is based in the pretty Dartmoor town of Chagford, Devon and specialises in French antiques and interiors.
After living in France for ten years, restoring old houses and running a small antiques and ‘deco maison’ boutique in an 18th century Maison Borgeoise, we brought the business home to the West country. Over the years we have developed a passion for French antiques, interiors and paintings. We also learnt a lot about the houses we restored - carrying out most of the work ourselves - and their history. The finishing touches make a house and small details make the atmosphere in every room.
Rue des Fontenelles offers a selection of predominantly quality French antiques from the 18th and 19th century - including antique commodes, buffets and tables - as well as a great range of decorative objects, lighting, French and European antique art and French and European gifts. We always stock a good selection of French and European antique oil paintings and decorative art mainly from the 19th and early 20th century. We also stock a selection of antique drawings and watercolours. All of our art and antiques is displayed on the website at www.ruedesfontenelles.co.uk and www.sellingantiques.co.uk.
We are also suppliers of Kate Forman fabrics and accessories and now have the full range of fabric and trimming books in the shop. Kate Forman's range is one of our favourite collections, not only are they inspired by 19th century French designs but offer a classic but relaxed feel to a home. The range includes a collection of timeless floral, plain and striped linens and cottons, subtle trimmings, classic velvets, lampshades and accessories.
