Antique furniture reflects a style or an era: an art de vivre, culture, and regional customs. The furniture was a combination of the cabinetmaker’s skill and the nobleness of local woods. Wood was combined with bronze, mother-of-pearl, brass, glass, or marble to create real works of art. Steeped in history and full of character, antique furniture attests to our ancestors’ exceptional expertise. It arouses the passion of antique dealers, who enthusiastically seek out antiquities and rare pieces.
Both functional and ornamental, the furniture promotes the authentic character of France’s regions. Promoting an exceptional heritage, period furniture highlights the creativity of the cabinetmaker as well as that of carvers, ornamentalists, and gilders. With its sober lines and richly carved decorations, antique furniture has an elegant functionality and gives our interiors a sense of aesthetic refinement and comfort.
