In 19th century France when Louis Philippe took the throne, he ushered in a new style of leadership. His chosen title, "King of the French," rather than "King of France," signaled a marked departure from the monarchs of the past. The citizen king assumed power not as a ruler of place but as a leader of the people. Thus, the style of furniture known by his name is a look of understated luxury for those who revere heritage yet crave simplicity. This is a style that Gen X and Y can appreciate.
Universal Furniture's New Lou reinvents Louis Philippe styling. Crafted of Solid Alder in a lightly distressed, Cognac Brown finish, New Lou juxtaposes graceful lines with modern sensibility and a casual attitude. Signature Louis Philippe molding gets a modern makeover that is strikingly updated yet clearly recognizable. Cast iron accents add a touch of drama to beautiful solid alder, while antiqued bronze ring hardware is comfortably familiar.
New Lou also is packed with the ingenious functionality that younger consumers demand. Look for hidden drawers and slide-out compartments for valuables, as well as drop-down drawers for technology and baskets for storage.
Exquisitely crafted and timelessly styled, New Lou promises to reign for today's younger generations, now and for many years to come.
