The Celtic roots of the Brittany region of France are manifest in the furniture produced in this region. The Breton style is as distinctive as its special culture and easily recognizable due to it’s very ornate carvings. A hallmark feature is the symbolic use of men and women in traditional Celtic dress to represent a strong work ethic, piety, and the enjoyment of life. The local economy in Brittany was heavily dependent on fishing and maritime activities, so one often finds circles and ship's wheels as a common decorative motif. Typically the furniture is carved out of chestnut or oak, with a dark finish.
