Client Spotlight: Asheville, NC

Most of the Antique Furniture deliveries for EuroLux Antiques are done by professional blanket-wrap vanline companies that specialize in moving Antique Furniture. However, Greg and I sometimes make our own deliveries in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia. It gives us an excuse to get out of the Gallery and meet our customers in person, as 95% of our sales happen over the Internet.

Over Memorial Day weekend, we delivered a beautiful and very high quality Antique French Hunting Buffet in oak dating to 1880 to Jerry and Rhonda’s vacation home in Asheville, North Carolina. The weather was outstanding — blue skies and 75 degrees — and their neighborhood was filled with a canopy of lush, mature trees.

The large Antique French Buffet in the Hunting Style (on the back wall in the photo) perfectly complimented Rhonda’s wildlife design scheme for the dining area of a large Great Room, just off the kitchen. The Great Room is flooded with sunlight from the large windows, which look out over a pretty patio area. A stunning, antique hand-carved sculpture of a stag in solid oak with real horns from the German Black Forest lends a stately presence to this comfortable room.

French Antique Furniture in the Hunting Style is one of our specialties at EuroLux Antiques. The Hunting Style developed during the 16th century in France under the reign of King Francis I (1515 – 1547), who is known as the great French Renaissance monarch and who ruled at the same time as Henry VIII in England. King Francis wanted an exotic way to decorate his royal hunting lodges (the chateaux of the Loire Valley).  Jerry and Rhonda’s Antique French Hunting Buffet is a wonderful example of the French Hunting Style, which was very popular at the end of the 19th century.

On Antique Furniture in the Hunting Style, you will find detailed carvings of lion’s heads, winged griffins, and animal trophies, including eels, fish, rabbits, deer, boars, birds, and dogs. To further the experience of the hunt, carpenters included organic motifs with lush carvings of leaves and fruit along edges of buffets and on the backs of chairs, while table bases were often carved to represent the animals of the hunt: dogs, boars, deer, and foxes.  Notice that even the drawer pulls are carved in the shape of tree branches with leaves.

Please let me know if I can answer any questions about the French Hunting Style for you! Thanks for stopping by!
