It would make an impressive home bar too, displaying your favorite wines, spirits and liqueurs!

Carved antique buffet French Renaissance

Carved dog antique french buffet

I love this 1880 antique French Hunting buffet, carved with dogs and birds. The oak buffet stands more than 9 feet tall, crowned by a curved top crest with two birds flanking a regal shield. The detail on their carved feathers is gorgeous, as is the exquisite carving on the doors of a heron with a fish in its beak and a game bird pecking at berries.

Antique French Brittany chairsantique French brittany chair carvingThis set of 6 antique French Brittany chairs is a real conversation starter! Dating to 1880, the six chestnut chairs are carved with different images of traditionally dressed French country men and woman in the seat back.

I had to lighten these images a little so you can see the detailed carving on the seat backs. For that reason they don’t look nearly as rich as the actual aged chestnut wood. You can see detailed close-ups of all the carved characters on the antique Brittany chair listing on our website. Here is one of the guys sauntering through his rustic village just to give you an idea of the quality of the carving and the charm of the chairs! The ship wheel spindles on the crest rail honor Brittany’s maritime history.

Dale Tiffany Carnation LampFinally, this Dale Tiffany lamp is NOT an antique that just arrived on our latest container of antiques from France!

It is newly hand-crafted by Dale Tiffany artisans, inspired by an original antique Tiffany design, with each piece of glass individually crafted using the same copper-foiled technique pioneered by the glass maestro Louis Comfort Tiffany!

The Dale Tiffany carnation accent lamp will put a beautiful spot of summery color into your living room or bedroom all year round.

I’m just showing it to remind you that our discount code is valid on everything on our website.

Client Spotlight: Antique Chairs & Aztec Calendar Stone Table

I’ve got a great story for you today, one involving antique French Renaissance chairs, the famous Aztec calendar stone, and singer Axl Rose, of the band Guns N’ Roses!
Yep, it’s hard to see how those all fit together, but read on… I’ll start from the beginning.

Antique French Renaissance ChairsI met Bernard M. through our antique furniture store on Etsy. He asked about this set of antique French Renaissance chairs but he needed 8 chairs not 6.

The antique French Renaissance chairs Bernard liked are finely crafted in walnut wood with embossed leather upholstery. The 6 chairs date to 1900, carved with shells and swags. They have a lovely floral nailhead trim. So far, so good, but Bernard wanted 8 chairs not 6, so I suggested combining a similar set of antique Renaissance chairs that also featured embossed leather, spindle carvings, and those sexy curvy stretchers. He said yes!

Antique French Chairs in Hawaii

It turns out that all 12 chairs fit around his massive table that came with his new home in Hawaii. Bernard and Carol were in the process of moving from Switzerland to the Big Island, so we had to time the shipping of the chairs to arrive at approximately the same time as their load of furniture. Antique Chairs and Table

When Bernard shared the photos of the chairs, I had to find out about the unique table and he told me that the table is a reduced-scale (7ft diameter) reproduction of the Piedra del Sol. (See this Wikipedia entry for the history of the Aztec sun stone or calendar stone, one of the most famous works of Aztec sculpture.)

“We were told it was a gift — a housewarming present, perhaps — from Axl Rose, of the band Guns N’ Roses, to his band manager, the original owner of the house, which would make it about 25 years old,” said Bernard. “Obviously, unlike the original, it’s not stone! It’s not any synthetic stone either: it’s hollow metal, to keep the weight manageable and to render the very deep indentations of the original, painted to make it look like stone. (I am glad they did not attempt to paint it the way the original was thought to have been painted with very bright reds — for blood – plus blues and yellows, etc.)

Antique Chairs in Hawaii with kitten

“The pedestal does not really fit the style (it’s a classic motif of intertwined leafy branches), but it’s inconspicuous and so it’s OK,” continued Bernard. “There is no “original” for a pedestal for a round table from Aztec culture anyway.

“It was one of the two pieces of furniture from the sellers that we asked remain with the house — as the sellers themselves had obviously done when they had bought the house from the original owner,” said Bernard. “It is not a “comfortable” piece: it looks stunning in the space, but, once one looks at the designs on the top, it becomes disturbing.”
I guess that doesn’t bother the cute kitty stretched out on the antique Renaissance chairs!

Kitchen Window View in Hawaii

Bernard added: “The views are fantastic — I am attaching a pure view picture, taken from the window at the kitchen sink (makes washing dishes more pleasant, but slows down the pace ;-)

I love the view too — That would be the life! Thanks Bernard for telling us the story of the table. Your home is beautiful and we hope you continue to enjoy the antique French Renaissance chairs. They look terrific around the dining table. I think you’ll agree those are some well-traveled chairs (France to South Carolina to Hawaii) and that is one lucky cat!

Antique French Furniture in Classic Newberry Mansion

Today I have some photos of antique French furniture and Mechelen buffets that are a real treat to see in our customer Tamra’s classic but eclectic home. The outside of her Greco-Roman mansion in Newberry, SC, is gorgeous too! Outside of Newberry House

You may think the dining room looks a little familiar as this home used to be owned by our good customers, Roger and Peggy. S. They recently sold their elegant 1890s home, built when Newberry was a booming textile mill town at the turn of the century, to a wonderful new caretaker – Tamra!

Antique French Table Chairs dining room

Roger and Peggy left the French Country sideboard in place in the dining room because it fit so well on that wall under the stained glass windows and they didn’t have a spot large enough for it in their new home. Tamra chose a 1930s French Country Louis XV refectory table in walnut which is super-useful as it extends to 9.5 feet long – great for a dinner party! She also bought two sets of Hunting chairs dating to the 1880s in slightly different color oak finishes in order to mix things up.

French Antique Dining Room

Tamra also had her eye on an antique Hunting Buffet for the dining room. The original glass had been damaged on this handsome oak heavily carved Hunting Buffet dating to 1880, so we had replaced it with chicken wire to give a slightly rustic feel to the piece.

Antique French Hunting buffet

It works great in Tamra’s new dining room as there is an interesting juxtaposition of formality with the classic fireplace mantel, moldings, and crystal chandelier and the touch of rustic country with the less formal French Country pieces mixed with the chicken wire in the Hunting buffet.

This close-up of the antique French Hunting buffet shows more detail of the carved oak and the heraldic crest. There’s plenty of space for Tamra to store all the dishes and stemware and silver that she’ll need to feed everyone gathered around the large table!

Tamra also fell in love with another heavily carved Hunting Buffet for the hallway at the base of her stairs. Antique French Carved Hunting Buffet

Tamra has a wonderful eclectic touch and paired antique Chinese arm chairs from her husband’s travels next to the antique French buffet. The flamboyant carvings on the oak buffet portray mythical griffins, oak leaves, fruits, and birds (right down to their feathery details!) The 1880 French buffet boasts its original wavy glass doors.

Antique French Hunting Buffet

As we were delivering Tamra’s furniture, she pointed out that she was still looking for a pair of interesting pieces to go on either side of the huge front door in the front hall. I knew exactly what would fit the bill! I recommended a matched pair of narrow antique Mechelen buffets which still have their original stained glass even though they are a century old.

Antique Mechelen buffet stained glass

This shot of the stained glass shows just how intricate it is, surrounded by oak carvings. The Flemish Mechelen style was a Belgian interpretation of the French Hunting style, so I knew these pieces would work well with the other antique furniture Tamra bought from us.

Antique Mechelen Buffet

Here is one buffet in place. The stained glass catches the light beautifully as it streams through the sidelights on either side of the massive front door.
Pair of antique Mechelen buffetsAnd this is the pair of Mechelen buffets creating a magnificent entrance. The lovely dining room and the whole house is a reflection of Tamra herself – very classy yet down-to-earth and fun! Welcome to Newberry, Tamra – we’re glad you’re here!

Client Spotlight: French Antique Chairs in Sandoval Restaurant

A couple of years ago we sold a set of antique Renaissance chairs to Bart D.,  the director of Business Development for Richard Sandoval Restaurants. He was in charge of opening a new location of La Biblioteca, a tequila bar that offers more than 350 tequilas in Denver, CO.

Antique French Renaissance ChairsI’m delighted to hear that La Biblioteca has been a great success, and I’m even more delighted to think that our antique chairs feature as part of the décor in the bar and restaurant!

This is one chair from the set of six antique French Renaissance dining chairs.

They date to 1900 and each sturdy walnut chair boasts the original embossed dark brown leather on the seat and back, accented by a chunky nailhead trim.

Antique Renaissance Embossed Leather Chair

The leather is embossed with a decorative design of flowers and ribbons in the Louis XVI style. The rail of entwined ovals carved in the seat back add another strikingly ornamental touch that works well in a contemporary dining room.

French Antique chairs in restaurantHere are the antique French chairs in La Biblioteca restaurant in Denver. It’s near the Millennium Bridge in Denver’s RiverFront Park neighborhood and it’s the brainchild of international restaurateur, television personality and cookbook author, Chef Richard Sandoval. The original La Biblioteca location is in New York City on 3rd Avenue in Manhatten.

La Biblioteca Tequila LibraryBoth venues are based on Chef Sandoval’s “Library of Tequila” concept, serving up a menu of Latin-Asian cuisine and a collection of Sandoval’s personal favorite tequila selections including some aged up to 25 years.

I guess in Tequila Land that counts as a mellow old antique, so it’s fitting that diners get to enjoy some mellow antique furniture too!

La Biblioteca has received some wonderful press coverage. For example, Food And Wine magazine included the restaurant in their list of 7 Places to Drink Really Good Tequila.

The magazine added, “Sandoval’s superior menu includes guacamole with smoked trout, and tacos stuffed with skirt steak, Wagyu and chorizo.”

Mmm. Is there any chance that some Denver customers want Greg and me to personally deliver some antique furniture soon? That way we can stop over and try the tastes of La Biblioteca for ourselves. If you are one of our Colorado readers and you’ve been to La Biblioteca, we’d love to hear about it!

Client Spotlight: French Antique Hunting Chairs

We enjoyed hearing the story Howard C. from Oceanside, NY, told us about why he bought a set of antique Hunting chairs from us.

Set of French antique Hunting chairsThe set of 6 antique Hunting chairs in question date to the year 1880 and they were crafted in France. This very nice old set of oak dining chairs is intricately and heavily carved in the traditional French Hunting style.

Antique Hunting Chair
As you can see, the seat backs are carved with ivy leaves, and the chairs are adorned with barley twists and beautifully carved legs and stretchers. The lavish decorative detail on the antique Hunting chairs is enhanced by the authentic aged patina of the wood.

Antique Hunting Chair Dining Room The chairs caught Howard’s eye because he said his parents had a nearly identical set of dining chairs as he was growing up. Remembering those chairs, Howard knew he had to have this set when he found them on our EuroLuxAntiques.com website! Don’t they look terrific in his dining room?

French Antique Hunting Chairs in our client's dining room

Howard’s mom still has the pair of end chairs from her set. She is going to swap him that pair for the pair of end chairs pictured in the photo. The deep and rich red walls in this dining room make the perfect accent for the chairs and their aged oak patina. As I’ve said in other client spotlights with red dining rooms, red is a classic decor choice for dining rooms as it stimulates both the appetite and the conversation! Howard’s wife wasn’t too sure if the antique Hunting chairs would be right for the table, but he convinced her and she absolutely loves them now too!

French Antique Hunting Chairs set

Howard also told us that when the chairs arrived, they were the most well-packed item he’s ever received. We are pleased to hear that because we take great care with our shipping and pride ourselves on it. (We offer free shipping in the contiguous 48 United States and some parts of Canada, but free doesn’t mean that we cut any corners.) It was a pleasure working with Howard!

Client Spotlight: Antique Brittany Furniture for Victorian Restoration

Angela M. recently bought several pieces of antique Brittany furniture from our gallery for the beautiful Victorian house that she is restoring in Galveston, TX.  The 1890 Victorian was almost completely gutted by fire about two decades ago. Here is the photo Angela sent us of the outside of the house as it looked nearly 120 years ago in the year 1894.

Our client's Victorian restoration home as looked in 1894

And below is a photo of the house “under new management” last year. Isn’t it gorgeous?

Front closeup

Angela says that the house is known for the lovely detailing around the porch of mariner’s wheels.  The white paint on the porch really makes those wheels stand out! Antique Brittany furniture is a perfect choice for the interior. The Brittany style often features maritime details such as ship’s wheels in tribute to coastal Brittany’s sea-faring history.

Brittany armoire 14-2A-1This is one of the pieces of antique Brittany furniture Angela chose for the house. It’s a display cabinet or bookcase dating to 1880, carved in chestnut with a beveled glass door. You can see the large ship’s wheel at the top of the French cabinet, tying in with the maritime theme of the house porch. The two galleries of spindles along the top and bottom of the bookcase are typical of Brittany style furniture. So are the hand-carved rosettes adorning the bottom drawer.
Antique Brittany Table KC-33A-1Angela also picked this Brittany style chestnut dining table dating to 1880. It’s a real stunner and the French craftsmanship is superb. Each leg boasts a carved figurine of a man or a woman wearing period regional costume. Carved figures of French country folk like these often decorate antique Brittany furniture. They are one of the most delightful characteristics of the style. The central stretcher beneath the table once again features a carved ship’s wheel.

Antique Brittany chairs KC-33B-1To match the table, Angela chose this splendid set of six Brittany dining chairs. Crafted in France in around 1880, the chestnut chairs are carved with an arched gallery of spindles on the crest rail. Each chair back features a carving of a French man or woman in happy pastoral scenes. Some of them are playing bagpipes. If you’re wondering why French country folk are playing bagpipes – an instrument that normally makes us think of Scotland – here’s the reason. Brittany is historically a Celtic nation, like Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. Similar Celtic traditions and symbols appear in all those regions as they had such close cultural ties. Hence the bagpipes, which are often portrayed on antique Brittany furniture.

Due to Angela’s arthritis, she is having much of the Victorian restoration work done for her. We all know these things take time! But we hope she sends us photos of the antique Brittany furniture in place once the house is further along. Angela says “I should have waited a while to buy furniture, but I love the Brittany style and just couldn’t resist!”
