Lucienne is a minimal and elegant WordPress theme by the folks at Themefurnace, one of the best independent theme shops around. Themefurnace have been around for quite a while and they have a lot of great themes but I think Lucienne is my favourite due to it’s clean looks and simple execution.
When you take a look at the demo you’ll see that there are not tons of different layout variations and page templates. The main parts of the theme is a simple homepage showing your posts and nice looking article pages. You also get wooCommerce support and some basic styling for wooCommerce. I’d like to see more time spent on this area ideally as parts of the shop are not designed particularity well compared to the rest of the theme but personally I wouldn’t buy this theme for its wooCommerce support anyway. For me it would be all about getting a simple blog or magazine set up with no hassle at all.
This theme would be perfect for fashion, beauty, and design websites. Social sharing is well integrated and there is support for popular plugins like Jetpack, Mailchimp and Contact form 7.
The Lucienne theme is well optimised for speed due to it’s minimal approach and good code base. Lucienne would also be a great choice for developers who want to build on an existing theme because there is no bloat here that you would need to remove.
If you like what you see so far then take a look at Lucienne to learn more about it. You wont be disappointed if you’re looking for a simple magazine WordPress theme.
