Antique of the Week ~ Antique French Louis XVI Bedroom Set

Antique French EngravingSince the early days of the French monarchy, antique furniture styles have followed the lead of the Royal French Court. From the moment the royal wedding in 1770 of the daughter of the Emperor of Austria, known to us as Marie Antoinette, and Louis-Auguste of France, who was to become King of France only four years later, her interest in ancient Greece and Rome, and the classic architecture and furniture those civilizations produced, started to exert its influence on the preferred styles of the court, eventually resulting in what today is known as the Louis XVI style.

Antique Bedroom Set

The Queen of France was also known for her exquisitely romantic bedroom furniture and appointments, the influence of which can be seen in Versailles today, and which is reflected in the Louis XVI style throughout the 19th century. A splendid example of this romanticism and classic design is our choice this week of a truly special antique three-piece bedroom set.

Antique Bedroom Set Bed Antique Nightstand

From its stately architecture with its tailored lines and fluted corner posts which so resemble the fluted columns of ancient Greece, to the elaborately cast and hand-chased bronze ormolu mounts, this three piece bedroom set exudes a timelessness that has maintained its appeal for over two millennia!  Upon closer examination, we discover that exotic mueche mahogany was used, a wood imported from North and South America’s tropical regions with a unique grain variation.  This highly prized wood provides the perfect backdrop for the jewelry-like quality of the bronze ormolu mounts, which depict rosettes, exquisite floral and foliate motifs, and even the ribbon that appears to band together the fluted corner posts which is a reference to the fascis carried into the Roman Senate to mark the beginning of a session.  Hand-crafted by extraordinarily talented artisans in the 19th century, our own 21st century in-house artisans have transformed the bed to accommodate a Queen size mattress set by crafting rail extensions, leaving the headboard and footboard intact and original.

Beauty is Indeed in the Details

Antique EngravingDear friends,

I believe antique living is a state of mind. It is for those in love with the romance of the past that experience a refined lifestyle, and at the same time enjoying the essence of history which enhances our everyday lives. Whatever brings you to Antiques in Style, our quest is always to enhance your lifestyle and your interiors with antiques that inspire your dreams.

Antique Beauty is in the Details

I just returned from another extensive buying trip and wanted to share a photo of a few of my finds. These are remarkable French doors which imbue elegance and grace ~ they are from a Chateau and feature their original Louis XVI bronze hardware ~ and the remarkable hand painted finish in soft neutral tones is exquisitely preserved. The needlepoint tapestry fauteuils with hand-carved French walnut frames have just a touch of d’ore accent to balance their simple lines with the charm and elegance of classical elements.

Beauty is indeed in the details!
