Living with Antiques and Heirlooms

Past Present Living with AntiquesWe love living with antiques and heirlooms and vintage decor, and our customers who buy antique furniture in our online store also enjoy collecting and displaying these unique pieces.

This is why we were delighted when we found this book called Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques. Author Susan Sully’s book shows how to blend heirlooms and antiques into contemporary homes in a beautiful way that is easy to live with.

As Sully says: “Antiques add the touch of time and the human hand. Every dented baby cup, mended tablecloth, perfectly or imperfectly preserved piece of silver or porcelain tells a story that began long ago and hasn’t ended yet. There are no rules about living with them, except to take what’s old and keep it young by making it part of daily life.”

Dining room with antiques

Every piece of antique furniture that we find in Europe and ship back to the USA certainly has a story behind it, and it is a joy to see these gorgeous hand-crafted antiques start a new chapter of their story in our customers’ homes.  You can see for yourself how good they look in our mini tours of customer homes in our series of Customer Spotlights.

sitting room with antiques

Sully’s book shows examples of 20 houses to illustrate how the past can meet the present in her guide to incorporating antiques and heirlooms into every kind of interior design scheme, including more contemporary looks. In the photo above, beautiful antique furniture like the painted Florentine chest are mixed with a contemporary leather sofa, a 20th century Lucite table and an exotic zebra rug! One of the key tricks in living with antiques today is to be brave about mixing and matching objects from different eras and in different styles. As we can see,  the eclectic mix works perfectly!

Kitchen table living with antiques

Sully’s book also shows how to pull together traditionally-inspired interiors that aren’t fussy or stiff, For example, this kitchen looks so welcoming and cozy for a family gathering. Although there are many antique and vintage pieces here, the bolt of teal blue color gives a firmly contemporary touch. Another of Sully’s tricks is to change finishes and upholstery to give them new life, or to combine objects in unusual juxtapositions.

Formal dining room living with antiques

Sully also takes it upon herself to show how to set inviting tables, like this formal dining room with antique furniture which features a clever display of artichokes in classic European style. She also gives hints on how to display collections creatively. The 20 houses featured in the book range from a converted 1915 fire station in Alabama, to a Greek Revival mansion in New Orleans. What a terrific celebration of living with antique furniture and heirloom pieces!

Client Spotlight: Sailing Ship Crystal Chandelier

Among the antique and vintage chandeliers that we sell, we also sell many gorgeous new chandeliers and our best-selling new chandelier of all time is this stunning sailing ship crystal chandelier.   Our customer Konnee in Malabar, FL, recently bought one of the chandeliers and sent photos of it in her home, so we can see exactly why this beauty is so popular! Crystal Ship ChandelierThis is the large crystal ship chandelier, measuring more than 30 inches long. The  high-quality chandelier is terrifically detailed and lavishly adorned with glass crystals, along with six lights, some glass elements and antiqued bronze metal. Every time we get new stock in of the chandelier it sells out quickly because so many people love it for its exceptional sparkle and unique character.  If you click through on the crystal ship chandelier on sale on our website and it shows as out of stock, email or call us anyway, and we’ll make sure that you are first in line when we receive new stock in a few weeks!

crystal ship chandelier in dining roomHere is the chandelier in Konnee’s Florida home. She decided to hang it in her dining room. “I love it,” Konnee wrote to us. “I knew I would and it looks great.” We agree! It especially looks terrific against Konnee’s wood ceiling, which evokes the wood timbers of a ship on the high seas! Here is another angle on the ship chandelier in Konnee’s dining room. Look at how brilliantly it shines with all the gazillions of crystals! It looks amazing and we are so glad that she sent the photos because you can really see just how spectacular the sailing ship light looks in real life. It is the perfect finishing touch for a summer coastal cottage or a cabin on the lake,  and a great choice for any nautical themed decor. It will brighten up any room, whether you want to say “ahoy matey” in a beach themed bathroom, create a talking point and focal point in a living room,  or welcome guests with a jaunty piece of decor in your entryway.

Seeing the crystal sailing ship chandelier in Konnee’s home has made my day and put a smile on my face, which is what beautiful and unique design should always do. It’s also put me in the mood for spending a nice relaxing time by the ocean. Greg… when can we leave for summer vacation?

Strong Curves in Furniture Trends

Strong curves in furniture were a key trend in both the 2019 Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market and the last Las Vegas Winter Market, according to Houzz. The curves might be in a more traditional piece of furniture or in a modern and streamlined piece. Either way the strong curved shapes break up the hard edges of straight lines and angles and give a softer and more welcoming look.

Antique Art Nouveau Buffet SideboardLet’s take a look at some great examples of curvy furniture available in our online new and antique furniture store.

We recently found this gorgeous antique Art Nouveau server or sideboard in France and shipped it back to the USA to put in the store. Dating to 1900, the beautiful walnut wood Art Nouveau cabinet boasts curvy side rails in the flowing style typical of Art Nouveau, framing the many useful shelves.

This versatile piece is perfect as a dining room server, but you could also use it as a home bar or — thanks to the mirror back — even as a vanity in your bedroom.

Theodore Alexander Chest of DrawersThis Theodore Alexander bowfront chest of drawers features a bold curved front that creates a fabulous profile. The chest is based on original Louis XVI style furniture and it is crafted in burl with brass engraved panels. You can picture two of these flanking a doorway, window, or other architectural feature where the strong curve of the bowfront will create visual interest in a room otherwise full of straight lines.

La Rochelle settee

If you are looking for curves, you look to Rococo! The swirling Rococo style of furniture is full of seduction, as you can see from this newly crafted La Rochelle settee. The new settee is designed in the French Rococo style with a solid wood construction and black velvet upholstery. The eye immediately goes to the settee back with its curves and flourishes and intricate lace carving. The French cabriole legs also add a softness to the settee, which has an antique gold finish to add to the glamour and romance.

Curved Settee Handcrafted USAIf you are looking for something with a more contemporary silhouette, this new blue settee is hand-crafted in the USA with a wood frame and blue leather upholstery. The lines are clean and modern with a back that slopes down into curved arms.  This is a more architectural and tailored interpretation of the strong curves trend. If you wanted to keep the tailored feel, you would add a couple of square throw pillows, perhaps in a bold contrast color like red or black. To soften the look, a chunky knit cream throw draped over one side would add texture.

Dovetail Chaise Longue Mid ModFinally, this new Dovetail Furniture James chaise is even more spare in design, letting the curve of the chaise do all the talking! This chaise is a great choice for a Contemporary, Modern or Mid-Century Modern style space, and it is beautifully made and hand-finished. It is crafted with a chrome plated steel frame and hand-finished vintage look leather upholstery.

So… think outside the box! Whether you prefer minimalist structures or more flamboyant traditional styles, there is a piece of furniture with strong curves that will suit your interior design scheme and give a new twist to your decor.

Antique Buffets in Today’s Homes

Antique buffets are increasingly popular for today’s homes, bought by people who want a unique and very useful piece of storage furniture. In addition to providing versatile storage and serving space, the antique buffets in our online store are beautifully handcrafted, often featuring ornate hand-carvings and elegant glass doors. We find our buffets in Europe — most of them are French — and hand-pick the best to ship them back to the USA. Our customers can’t get enough of these fabulous pieces! Here are some photos of antique buffets making a great impression in our customers’ homes.

Antique French Brittany Buffet with Jadeite Fire King

Debbie and Drew bought this antique French Brittany buffet from us and discovered it was the perfect choice for their kitchen as it was just the right size to fit with the lower ceilings in their space. Debbie found in our store a very beautiful antique Brittany buffet that is on the petite side so it fit exactly where she needed the buffet in her kitchen. As you can see, it was the ideal piece to display her Jadeite Fire King collection, made by Anchor Hocking in the 1940s.

Antique Renaissance Buffet Kitchen Diner

Natalya in California bought this delightfully pretty Henry II Renaissance style antique French buffet from us for her kitchen. Elaborate walnut carvings make a wonderful decorative statement in her kitchen.  The buffet dates to 1900 and as Natalya has three lively young sons running around, a big sturdy buffet like this is perfect for the kitchen. The storage space in the large buffet makes it as practical for Natalya’s family as it is beautiful.

repurposed Antique French Brittany Buffet

This is an antique French Brittany buffet that we delivered to our customer May in Pensacola Beach, Florida. Although the buffet dates to 1880, May wanted us to give it an update and alter it to accommodate a TV for viewing in her bedroom. So we asked a local restoration company to remove the central support between the left and center upper doors, and attach it to the end of the left door. They did a wonderful job and it is now a gorgeous TV cabinet for May. The front of the cabinet is hand-carved in traditional Brittany style with scenes of rural life and figures of a man and woman acting as support columns.

antique French Louis XV Buffet

Many of our customers buy an antique buffet from us for their dining rooms. This is the perfect place for it as it stores all your serving dishes, stemware and silverware, and also provides extra serving space when you are entertaining. For example, Paul and Lane selected this antique Louis XV Buffet from Liege, Belgium, from us for their handsome dining room.

antique French dining chairs Renaissance

Lenore and John bought this super antique French Henry II buffet in the Hunting style from us for their recently purchased cottage in North Carolina. The cottage is more than 100 years old so it makes sense to furnish it with antiques too! A carved scene of a hunter and stag on the upper cabinet makes this buffet a work of art as well as a beautiful piece of furniture. The two lower cabinet doors are carved with mythical, dragon-like creatures which add yet more character to this charming cottage. The vintage French chairs are also from our store.

Then Lenore found another buffet she loved, and she decided to get creative with it for her bedroom! Louis XVI antique sideboard bedroom

The pretty Louis XVI buffet is carved in oak wood with delightful ribbons, floral designs and coats of arms. Crafted in France in 1930, the buffet also features mirrored doors and open display shelves that made it the perfect choice to be repurposed as a bedroom dresser.  There is so much space to tuck away your jewels and silk scarves and other favorite pieces of clothing!

If you want to browse our antique buffets in our store, we are sure you will find plenty of inspiration for your own home. Remember that shipping is always free in the continental US and some parts of Canada, so you can afford to indulge yourself with one of these unique pieces of furniture that are as useful as they are handsome!

Religious Treasures: Antique French Prie-Dieu Prayer Chairs

As we approach Easter week, we often have more inquiries about the antique religious treasures in our online store. During this Holy Week, I wanted to shine a special spotlight on antique French prayer chairs, also called a prie-dieu in French.Antique French Prie-Dieu for sale at EuroLuxHome.com

These exceptional pieces of furniture are not only beautiful in design, but they are created purely for the purpose of prayer and devotion. Prie-dieu literally means “Pray god” and people use it as a knee rest in their prayers and as a support for prayer books.

This superb antique French prie-dieu currently on sale in our online store is a wonderful example.  It is finely crafted in cherry wood and upholstered with green velvet and it dates to about 1890. Notice the decorative shell on the back of the chair and the turned spindle posts.

When we find a prie-dieu while on our buying trips in France, we know that these pieces have been treasured for many years, often for much more than a century. It is touching to to imagine how many devout worshippers have paid their religious devotions and dedicated their prayers while supported by these chairs.

Here is another example of a prayer chair, which we found during one of our antiques buying trips. Although prayer chairs were most often for private devotional use at home, some would also be found in churches, like this one that we discovered for sale at a church in Normandy.

antique French Prie Dieu

The chair dated to 1890. It was a bit sad and sorry for itself, but the carvings in the oak wood were lovely and in good shape.

Prie-dieu antique French

So we brought it home and had it reupholstered in red velvet, to keep the overall look of the prayer chair as close as possible to the original upholstery.  Isn’t it gorgeous? Our customers thought so, and we quickly got a lot of inquiries and it was snapped up.

The prie-dieu was given its name around the early 17th century although the item of furniture was used long before that. You might sometimes have seen a prie-dieu used at a church wedding, where it is provided for the elaborately bedecked bride and her groom to kneel on during the service!

The prayer chairs above are quite ornate in their carvings and design, but here’s another example with a simpler but no less lovely design.

Vintage French Prayer Chair

This vintage French prie-dieu is still currently available in our online store at the time of writing, and it is crafted in walnut wood and boasts a rattan seat. It dates to about 1930, which explains the lighter and more streamlined silhouette, reflecting the tastes of the modern era around the Art Deco period.

If you’ve enjoyed our exploration into the prie-dieu, then you might also enjoy reading my blog post about other kinds of Antique Religious Treasures. You can also browse the vintage and antique French prayer chairs in our online store.

Client Spotlight: Barcelona Dining Chairs and Parquet Table

We were delighted to ship this wonderful new set of Barcelona dining chairs and matching Barcelona dining table to LeeAnn K. in Wickenburg, AZ. We were even more delighted when she sent us a photo of the dining set in her home!

Barcelona dining chair LeeAnn ordered five of the Barcelona dining chairs from us, The antique-inspired chair is very handsomely crafted with a solid wood construction that has a distressed walnut finish. The wood is complemented by an oatmeal linen back with a classic tufted upholstery design and a leather upholstered seat.  The combination of leather and linen looks luxurious and a bold nailhead trim also adds to the traditional appeal.

Curvy X-shaped stretchers crowned with a bold finial make this chair a beauty from top to toe, while the finial and the flourish of the scroll legs gives an architectural look. Although newly crafted, the Barcelona chair truly looks as if it belongs in a noble house in the heart of Old World Europe!

Barcelona dining table LeeAnn also ordered the Barcelona dining table from us. The dining table with an antiqued walnut finish stands on a shapely pedestal that is a great complement to the skirted top. The sturdy table has a round top with an unusual parquet design forming the petals of a flower. As you can see from this bird’s eye view of the table top, the attractive geometric floral parquet adds great visual and textural interest.

When LeeAnn sent us the photo of the Barcelona table and chairs in her home, she added a note: “The table and chairs arrived today and look so beautiful… Thank you for helping us with this amazing purchase.”

Barcelona Table & Chairs

What is the Louis XV Style of Antique Furniture?

The Louis XV style of antique furniture is a romantic and lavishly decorative style of furniture that emerged in the reign of Louis XV, also known as Louis Quinze in French. The style is forever popular and for a very good reason.  It is beautiful and ornate but light in spirit and in form. This style is all about the curve! Sensuous lines and intricate carvings create an impressive decorative effect, but they are not so overwhelming in scale or opulence that they overwhelm any space smaller than a palace!

Vintage Louis XV chestThese looks can easily translate to our homes today, whether you decorate an entire house or room in Louis XV style, or simply add a few antique pieces to bestow a romantic and feminine touch on a more eclectic design scheme. For example, the above bedroom at a customer’s home in Sarasota includes a vintage Louis XV vanity chest of drawers that they bought from us, which gives a very pretty look. You can read more about the Louis XV Vanity Chest of Drawers in this Client Spotlight blog post.

French Antique Buffet 1890

This lavish look rose to popularity in the 1700s, and it was also influenced by the king’s favorite mistress Madame du Pompadour. During this Golden Age of decorative style in France, the new look was attractive to the king’s court.

Typical features of this French Rococo Louis XV style include ornate carvings including shells and wavy or watery shapes that look almost like frills. The shell is probably one of the most famous motifs of this period, often seen crowning a buffet or a bed headboard or on a chair rail. Read my Antique French Louis XV Buffet Client Spotlight to see more about this stunning 1890 beauty pictured left, which we found in France at the request of a customer in California.

Flowing scroll shapes and flourishes often look like the letters S and C.   Carved Acanthus leaves are also common as well as birds, flowers and fruit. The carvings on Louis XV furniture were often asymmetric, which was refreshingly new in this period of design.

Louis XV Vintage French Rococo Chairs Curves are again important in the S-shaping of cabriole legs on chairs and tables. (You’ve got to love the cabriole legs on this set of vintage French Louis XV dining chairs!) Chair backs were often shaped like a cartouche, which is basically a rounded oval, topped with carvings.

A greater emphasis on comfort in this era led to seat backs being very slightly angled, allowing the user to relax back, rather than having to sit bolt upright! Antique Louis XV style furniture invites people to relax and chat in comfort.

Convex curved shaping on the front of sideboards, cabinets and consoles added to the wavy sensuality, and this new innovation became known as the bombe shape. Marquetry, gilding, lacquering inspired by Chinoiserie, and other painted finishes added to the ornamental appeal.

It looks fabulous and gives the guest room a cohesive and charming look.

We hope that this gives you an idea of the Louis XV style of antique furniture. If this romantic look has seduced you, as it does so many others, then check out our Louis XV antique, vintage and new furniture for sale on our website.

These recently published books explore what gives your home the French Country look and summon up the easy-going Country House style.

French Country Cottage

French Country CottageAuthor Courtney Allison shows the story of how she renovated her 1940’s cottage in California with a romantic interpretation of French Country style.  The rural cottage had been abandoned before Allison brought her magic touch to it, filling it with a combination of rustic and refined element to evoke the feeling of a French Country home.

Allison includes antique furniture in her home… of course! Antiques and vintage pieces are important to this look to give the romantic aged effect of heirlooms and things collected over the years. Other key elements include a muted color palette and fixtures such as vintage door knobs. Allison also believes that every room should have a beautiful chandelier! We agree with you, Allison!

Client Spotlight: Mountain Cabin Coffee Table

Our gorgeous antique-inspired new Glenbrook coffee table turned out to be the perfect choice for John and Mindy’s mountain cabin in Landrum, S.C.

This is the new Glenbrook coffee table, item BG-428 in our online store. It is a four-foot-wide round coffee table in solid wood with a rustic pecan hand-planed finish.  It is also available with a darker rustic pecan finish and an antiqued black finish. Either way it is a beautifully sturdy coffee table with wonderful Old World appeal. So let’s meet John and Mindy…

Glenbrook Coffee Table

John and Mindy have recently moved to South Carolina from Texas, and they are now nestling into their new home in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Doesn’t it look like a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beautiful natural environment and great views?

Mountain Cabin Home

John is a baseball and golf fanatic and he has been busy designing his “man nook” in the downstairs. With a handsome curved sectional in the corner, he and Mindy thought that a round coffee table with a bit of a rustic style fit the bill perfectly!  Enter the Glenbrook table, which has just the right amount of distressing to look right at home in a mountain cabin.

Mountain Cabin living room

To the right of the sofa is a smart display case with a black finish that proudly displays John’s collection of baseball and golf treasures and trophies, while a vintage black-framed photograph of a golfer adds to the ambiance. What a comfortable spot kick up your feet and peruse the newspaper, read a good book, or watch a baseball or golf game on TV on a Saturday afternoon! The Glenbrook coffee table fits right in! Supported by sturdy and attractively shaped legs, the round table features a shaped lower shelf that adds to the visual interest.

The table is perfect for anyone who has traditional Old World taste but lives a relaxed American lifestyle, and we hope that John enjoys it for many years to come!
