The Linley stuff looks pretty good. The Neiman stuff looks regularly upscale

Where do you find/buy your antique French furniture? Any favorite places?

Various, Sotheby's, Christie's, Mallett, and Bonham's made up the bulk of it, but I have friends in the trade too, Huntington Antiques in the Costswolds, which specialises in early English furniture, but is a close friend of mine, so has sourced many rare pieces for me, Appley Hoare Exterieur, on Pimlico Road, Howe and Ross Hamilton Limited both also on the Pimlico Road.
It may interest you to see some photos of my apartment, which I posted a while ago on this thread

Two images are not showing up on that thread for some reason, so I'll post them all again

I don't know whether you noticed, but the Linley does not come with fabric, which makes the price all the more ridiculous.

Some very nice pieces - I particularly like the room itself, though. My tastes are more to the far modern side, but this is nicely done.

I assume you used a professional decorator (and I mean that as a compliment)? It's just the way the textiles are matched or rather "go" with each other that seems professionally done. It reminds me of David Hicks' style.

Is the bedroom wallpaper from Colefax & Fowler?

Last time I had commented that Bouji's house had elements of Madeleine Castaing's aesthetic.

Mallett also has rather nice English and French items. As for Hicks, where are the tablescapes?

Thank you.

No, I did not use a used a professional decorator, it was mostly done by my wife, though I did also choose and sourced most of the pieces; she just told me the kind of style to look for.

The bedroom wallpaper is indeed from Colefax & Fowler.

I barely even read the thread but in response to the title... what the fook-hell are you talking about? I've seen 30,000 dollar beds. That ain't cheap. :p

I'm comparing relatively similar products here.
