Acadian Collection

The Acadian Collection features pieces that are created based on traditional Louisiana Acadian Furniture indicated by their simplicity in design. Acadian Furniture was hand made by peasant farmers who arrived in Louisiana as refugees from Le Grand derangement with few possessions and little education. Their furniture was made from indigenous woods readily available, primarily Bald cypress,as well as Sycamore and Maple, Pecan, to be functional in their frontier setting and focal points in their modest homes. Although they settled along the Mississippi River area that was known as the Acadian coast in present St. Gabriel to St. Charles Parish across from Des Allemands, they eventually migrated west and south into Acadiana throughout the Atchafalya Basin all the way to Texas.
