Inevitable in terms of storage, the old sideboard is very popular around the second half of the 18th century. It is characterized by the presence of the curved shape and the angles showing a certain complexity, perfectly echoing the profusion of the Louis XV style. It is a type of furniture representing great utility in different rooms of the house.
Like all antique art furniture, identical to the works of Pierre Migeon II (1701-1758), a renowned 18th century cabinetmaker, and Marie Antoinette's favourite, Jean-Henri Riesener (1734-1806), the Empire sideboard is distinguished by its frame and its finish. Decorated with a decoration in boulle marquetry.
Easily recognizable by its opulence, ostentatious exuberance and luxurious look, this credence of antiques proves to be an excellent reference to decorate your interior in a classy and high-end way.
The Empire sideboard is made with a boulle marquetry with copper inlay, brass, bronze and imitation of tortoiseshells (synthetic). This type of decoration is an art designed in cabinetry by expert carpenters, consisting of assembling precious wood veneers associated with other materials, based on a drawing, to form figurative and ornamental effects. These images are used to sublimate the structure of the old furniture. The boulle marquetry, as its name suggests, was created by the most famous cabinetmaker of the reign of Louis XIV André-Charles Boulle. This style of boulle sideboard appeared during the time of Emperor Napoleon I, inspired by Egyptian decoration and military campaigns.
Also as a finish, finely chiseled gold bronzes with floral motifs, marking the style of transition, form the decoration of the frame.
This Napoleon III support piece opens in front by a smooth door and a drawer assembled by dovetails. Its top is formed by a real black marble.
You can put some order in your home with an Empire-style cabinet from the flea market, but your old look will be perfect if you also choose another item from this collection like bahuts or bahseliers.
