I carry an extensive line of Fleur de lis home decor items in my shop on Etsy, by far the most popular are distressed to create the shabby chic effect.
The English translation of "fleur-de-lis" (sometimes spelled "fleur-de-lys") is "flower of the lily." This symbol, depicting a stylized lily or lotus flower, has many meanings. Traditionally, it has been used to represent French royalty, and in that sense it is said to signify perfection, light, and life.
Shabby chic is a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their appearance of age and signs of wear and tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique.
I have quite a few loyal customers from Louisiana: the land of Louis, king of France; whose symbol was the Lily flower. New Orleans logically adopted the symbol, which it's local team logically integrated as it's logo. The fleur-de-lis is simply a French symbol used commonly in new orleans to represent new orleans, as well as our french culture.
