The high-quality Demi-Lune buffet furniture dates back to the last quarter of the 19th Century and was made in England of satinwood. The satinwood is characterized by a clear colouration, characterized by a lustre that resembles silk and a fine streak with clear areas alternated with dark areas. The cabinetmaker who designed this piece of furniture skilfully matched the wooden mirrors to create decorative effects by playing with the grain.
The style recalls the design of the furniture by Thomas Sheraton, a famous London cabinet maker, which marked, between 1792 and 1805, an important moment in the history of English furniture. Sheraton diffused the style that takes its name from him and that differs for lightness of the design, linear shapes, simple but refined elegance, underlined by the delicacy of the ornamental elements, entrusted to the techniques of carving and inlay and the use of precious woods.
This demilune sideboard is raised on four turned legs, corresponding to pilasters that run in height over the cabinet. It has three drawers, of which one large central, decorated with inlays representing garlands and bows. The bronze handles have a neoclassical vase plate. It has a central door with a panel decorated with fine inlays with vases of flowers, ribbons, neoclassical elements and an octagonal medallion with a classical figure in grisaille. Inside there are two large compartments, as well as in the side parts there are two small shelves. They are also paved with satinwood.
The buffet furniture is very versatile: they adapt to any room of the house, from the entrance to the living room, and offer endless possibilities of use.
