Beautiful French Furniture In The Metropolitan Museum of Art

French Museum FurnitureBeing a blogger, you sometimes see the same picture 10 times.  That is the case with these pictures below. I admired them so much that I found myself ecstatic to finally discover where the pictures originated from.  The beautiful French images show incredible patina in the paint which I originally thought was a cabinet, but happen to be the paneling on the walls.  The combination of colors show a rich blue gray with burnt orange details.  The photographs were taken by a professional photographer Jamie Beck, found in this post From Me to You.  Jamie resides in New York City, and shares her beautiful photography on her blog. These images were taken at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  The entire blog From Me To You is Jamie’s brilliant photography.
