Bienvenue à French Cachet!
Welcome to French Cachet!
First, about our name : "Cachet" is a seal used especially as a mark of official approval and comes from the wax seal used in olden days on documents. Nobles would also use their crested rings to seal letters. As an adjective it is used both in French and English to describe something that has a distinctive characteristic. It is amusing to see that many French expressions are used to this effect in both languages :"Panache", "Flair", "Flamboyant", "Allure", "Je ne sais quoi" and of course "Chic".
Most of our items were found in France and we think that they would add a personal flavor to any home. Visit the blog page where you will find video clips of our chandeliers and paintings. The About Us page will give you more information about our chandeliers and wall sconces and the artisan who created them. Lastly, I would like to mention that this website is as individual as the items it presents because I created it from A to Z, hence the seal with my family crest in the logo! Enjoy browsing!
