Happy Bastille Day! While we can be grateful to the French for many things, including croques monsieur, Audrey Tatou, margarine, carbaret, etc., I'd like to applaud la France for pumping out decades of innovative and influential design. Yes, this would include la Tour Eiffel and Impressionism, but today I'm going to focus on furniture and interior accessories. You'll be surprised by how many of your favorite pieces were nés en France. But before we go there, I couldn't resist sharing The Famed and Framed Roosters ($381), a trio of hand-painted roosters, a national emblem of France.
