Crafted from selected planks of dense, old-growth French white oak, this elegant antique Louis Philippe period buffet a deux corps can serve equally as well in the office. Crafted by the master artisans of Normandie, it features graciously scrolled forms that appear on the arched crown, glazed upper doors, lower doors and apron which reflect a restrained elegance that provides an overall style that is more complementary to many decors. Display your finest above, and store copious amounts of anything below, including inside the convenient drawers. Brass hinges, pulls and keyguards add quality, while the rich patina of the painted finish works perfectly with the Paris Country, "shabby chic" or casual look.
Louis Philippe ruled in unpretentious fashion, avoiding the pomp and lavish excesses of his predecessors and antique French furniture of that era reflects the austerity of the period. Abandoning the elaborate and carved elements of past French styles did not mean that French would depart from quality and superb craftsmanship in furniture, art or architecture. Louis Philippe period antique furniture is a true expression of the conflicts in the time when the regal authority was restored with restrained elegance.
Circa 1840s.
