In addition to furniture and home accessories the store offers custom-made chairs crafted in a family-owned workshop in France.
French Quarters certainly reflects their success. As soon as you walk in the front door, you're instantly transported to Europe. Scenes from a French village cover the walls, providing the perfect setting for the fine merchandise. Selections range from marble-top tables and hand-carved armoires to rustic mustard pots and dainty Limoges boxes.
"Often what we seek can be found in our own backyards," Chris muses. "People who discover our shop while passing through the Ozarks or on our Web site are amazed that our prices are usually half of what they have seen elsewhere. We truly bring the French countryside to middle America."
