About Us

At The French Barn

We started our first business and shop, 'Country Modern', a few years ago, refurbishing, painting and restoring furniture and selling beautiful items for the home and garden. We still believe that it is a crime to throw away a good piece of furniture just because its old or the wrong colour or in need of a little TLC. 'Country Modern' has been  a great success and as we now have a house and barns in France and have always loved France and 'all things French' , visiting regularly for both business and pleasure, it seemed only right to source and sell the beautiful furniture and other items (large and small) found in local French Properties, Antique Fairs, Brocantes and Vide-Greniers (markets and attic-sales), and Voilà, 'At The French Barn' was born.

We have a huge interest in architecture and interior design and a vast background in property development, home-staging and furniture painting and restoration (including re-working, re-cycling, up-cycling, re-purposing and renovation). We have also run very successful Painting workshops and other courses for several years, teaching others some of the skills we have learned, honed and developed over the past 30 years.

Individually, we also have backgrounds in art and design and over 20 years of success in teaching as well as many years experience in the IT industry and all things practical. Together we can turn our hand to just about anything! Self-confessed perfectionists, our love of French style and design, modern country home styling, sharp eye for design and detail and creative skills, have resulted in a passion for sourcing, styling and creating elegant, sophisticated and striking, quality furniture and interiors which are as unique and individual as you are!

Together, we continue to build and develop 'At the French Barn' from what started over 25 years ago, as a hobby with a few pots of paint in a garden shed, in to a vibrant, thriving business offering affordable, bespoke furniture services and French style for the home and garden.

Oh yes, and we also have two teenage children and a dog to keep us busy and help fill any spare time we get!!!

'At The French Barn' is run from just outside the Village of Sparham in Nowhere Lane, Great Witchingham, Norfolk NR9 5PD. We are just off the A1067 Norwich to Fakenham road and midway between Norwich, Dereham and Fakenham with good access to most of Norfolk. Most of the items on the website are sent direct from the warehouse and we don't have a showroom.
