Regal yet relaxed, rooted in tradition but updated with modern comforts – California Mediterranean is a mélange of old and new, and that’s the beauty of it. Here, you’ll discover handcarved burnished woods, gorgeous tapestries and splashes of rich color. It’s as warm as the high-noon sun, with touches of romance in every masterfully crafted detail.
La dolce vita – the good life – has taken up residence in the Golden State … it’s a lighter, laid-back take on tradition.
There’s a yin-yang connectedness to the California Mediterranean lifestyle. Rich mahogany is offset by light, crisp fabrics. And streamlined silhouettes are embellished with intricate detail-work. The blend of ornate Mediterranean styling and easygoing California attitude creates a beautiful balance that’s as livable as it is luxurious.
A sweep of dark-hued mahogany trimmed with handcarved embellishments is the heart of the California Mediterranean dining room. Our Valetta Trestle Table is an impressive piece made even more extraordinary by matching dining chairs. They provide a textural feast, gorgeously blending Mediterranean-inspired fabric backs with top-grain leather seats.
Taken at face value, our Noble Drink Server is a beautifully handcrafted console cabinet … but there’s much more than meets the eye. Combining the old-world artistry of the Mediterranean with contemporary conveniences – like a hidden beverage tub and wine glass rack – this stunning piece offers the best of both worlds.

Whether you’re a cat lover or a dog person, we can all agree that our pets are part of the family. And what better way to celebrate your beloved furry friend than with a handpainted portrait?
That’s where Lorraine Skelsky Chapin comes in. The award-winning New England artist is creating custom pet portraits for Frontgate.
Chapin’s art focuses on natural beauty – landscapes to still lifes, gardens and animals. Her work is saturated with light and color, reflecting the energy, atmosphere and unique personality of her subjects.
“My goal is to capture the essence of my subject, working in acrylic and oil and painting with feeling,” she says.
Pets certainly have a persona all their own. Chapin takes great care to capture your pet’s character in every brushstroke.
Chapin’s personalized portraits are a beautiful celebration of the love, service and kinship we receive from our pets. With the holidays fast approaching, they make wonderful, unexpected gifts for any animal lover on your list. Your personalized pet portrait arrives beautifully framed.
Chapin is an exhibiting artist at the PS Gallery in Litchfield, Connecticut, and the Barn Gallery in nearby New Fairfield. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Fine Line Art Gallery in Woodbury, Connecticut.

The rustle of fallen leaves. A hint of chill in the evening air. All signs that fall has finally arrived. And as the days shorten and the weather cools, we return to the beckoning pleasures of the great indoors. Which makes the onset of autumn the perfect time to explore new decor.
Join on us on a beautiful journey, and travel the world through impeccably crafted furniture, thoughtfully designed accents and curated accessories. It’s an inspirational expedition, highlighted by five fabulous lifestyle collections, each as unique as the destination that inspired it. Our first stop? European Grandeur.
From the Eiffel Tower to Big Ben, there is no shortage of impressive monuments to European Grandeur. But, when it comes to decor, this old-world lifestyle offers understated elegance – like the simple sophistication of a roll arm sofa or the charm of a neoclassic-inspired side table with just a touch of gold leafing.
So our trip begins in a Paris Flea Market – a treasure trove of gorgeous antique pieces. It’s here that our merchant and design teams find inspiration for the rich detail-work, traditional silhouettes and authentic finishes found throughout the collection.
And as we travel far and wide – from an English countryside manor to porticoed Kensington townhouses – you’ll discover an eclectic collection of irresistibly inviting furniture and rooted-in-tradition accessories for the whole home. All inspired by the rich history of European design.
Don’t let this journey end. Shop the collection for more ways to bring European Grandeur to your home.
It was late summer in 1991 when the first Frontgate catalogs made their way to homes around the U.S. They brought with them a novel approach to high-end home decor. The idea was to outfit America’s finest homes with products befitting them.
That was the start of our mission to bring you unique, stylish and beautifully crafted goods from around the world. And these same tenets of great design and quality craftsmanship still serve as our north star 25 years later.
We’ve been around the world in search of the artisans who are creating the extraordinary: those thoughtful, timeless designs that are meant to be lived in as much as they are looked at. And we love to share our amazing finds with you, because a truly remarkable product can be a revelation.
A longstanding favorite, our Balencia Chaise redefined outdoor lounging with its supple curves and contours.
Newer additions like the Havana Barmoire blend form and function so seamlessly, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them. And every single item you’ll find here is designed to infuse your home with touches of luxury and ease.
Like you, we love hosting and entertaining, and we take great pride in our homes. For 25 years, we’ve been trusted by millions of homeowners. We’ve helped to celebrate holidays, to entertain friends, and to create memories and heirlooms, in generations of families. We’re enthusiastic about our consumers and our products. It’s our passion and purpose.
And as we celebrate our silver anniversary, we would like to say thanks for welcoming us into your homes all these years.
