This week the Remodelista headed to France to celebrate all things À La Française. Here are five design ideas they brought back just in time for the holiday entertaining season:
Brass Light Switches

French designer Sarah Lavoine’s work channels “a cosmopolitan Parisian spirit.” Our favorite offerings? The deep-hued, vintage-style lighting. See more in City of Light: Vintage-Style Lamps from a French Designer.
Thank you, France, for inventing champagne to celebrate all important holidays. As for the first champagne coupes? The glasses arrived at smart parties in the early 1800s, with a wide and shallow design to allow the bubbles to disperse faster.
The coupe has not been improved upon: not by the flute, not by the goblet. Collect mix-and-match champagne coupes from consignment shops (bonus points for the ones with grape vines etched on the glass).
