Want French style, but live 3,700 miles away in Toronto? As seen in this Style At Home article, mere distance didn't stop homeowners Laurent Papaix and David Toto. They redecorated their vintage home with French style, mixing rustic motifs and traditional tables with more modern accents, drawing inspiration from the Ile de Re, the holiday island off the west coast of France.
In the shot above, they've used a distressed table with table runner and a dramatic crystal chandelier with a clear glass body.
Our crystal chandelier shown above offers a similar look. To match the look even more, you could replace the glass segment shades with an ivory or white clip-on shade. Regent Square Five Light Crystal Chandelier.
In the bedroom, simple white accents play against a DIY bedside table lamp with a clear glass body.
If you're not the DIY type (I'm not!), go with our Contemporary Clear Glass Table Lamp. It has a slightly more elongated neck and body, but you'll get the same shine and shimmer effect from the clear glass.

I love the Regent square chandelier! I think it would add an elegant touch to any room.
I agree! I love the way the formal look of the crystal chandelier blends with the rustic and distressed elements in the room.
It's a beautiful and classic design that's really pulled together by the centerpiece chandelier. Thanks for the comment!
