Inevitable in terms of storage, the old sideboard is very popular in the second half of the 18th century. It is characterized by the presence of the curve form and the angles showing a certain complexity, taking up perfectly the profusion of the Louis XV style. It is a type of furniture representing a great use in different rooms of the house.
Like all antique art furniture, identical to the works created by Pierre Migeon II (1701-1758), a renowned 18th century cabinetmaker, and Marie Antoinette's favorite, Jean-Henri Riesener (1734-1806), the Buffet Empire is characterized by its skeleton and its finish. Decorated by a decoration in boulle marquetry.
Easily recognizable by its opulence, its ostentatious exuberance and its luxurious look, this antique credenza is an excellent reference to decorate your home in a classy and upscale way.
The Empire sideboard is made with a marquetry boulle with inlay of copper, brass, bronze and imitation of scales of turtles (synthetic). This type of decoration is an art crafted 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 antique furniture. Boulle marquetry, as its name suggests, is created by the most famous cabinetmaker of the reign of Louis XIV André-Charles Boulle. This style of boulle buffet appeared at the time of Emperor Napoleon I, inspired by Egyptian decoration and military campaigns.
Also as a finish, gilded bronzes finely chiseled floral motifs, marking the transition style, form the decoration of the frame.
This Napoléon III support cabinet opens on the front with a smooth door and a drawer assembled by dovetails. Its top is formed by a real black marble.
You will be able to put some order in your home with an Empire style flea market furniture, but your old look will be perfect if you also choose another element of this collection such as chests or dressers.
