I fall in love with all the antique and vintage furniture that Greg and I select for EuroLuxAntiques.com. We carefully choose these beautiful pieces from France and elsewhere in Europe, and then (even more carefully!) bring them back to America to share with our customers. Sometimes I want to keep every piece of vintage furniture for myself! Of course I can’t, because when we finally finish the renovation of our 1920s bungalow it will be packed to the rafters with me, Greg, and our eight dog and cat pals, as well as our own antiques.
This French Mid-Century Modern sideboard is a very pretty example of the kind of vintage furniture I enjoy. It especially tempted me to tell the family to squeeze up a bit tighter so we could fit it in! But I’m so glad it went to such a lovely home, and I’m delighted that our customer Irene in Fulton, Maryland, let us show you these pictures of her dining room.
Irene has done a lovely job with her elegant blue dining room. The Art Deco chandelier is a great match to the sideboard against the far wall. The gold-framed mirror on the left wall will be hung above the sideboard, but Irene sensibly decided she need to see the sideboard in place first, before positioning the mirror.
The sideboard or buffet dates to 1960 and it features a fantastic walnut veneer and handsome hardware. It’s clear that a master craftsman put a lot of love – and probably a lot of hours – into creating that stunning sunburst design. Then you’ve got that sensational basketweave on the top and side doors too.
Here’s another shot of Irene’s dining room, with a closer focus on the vintage French buffet. The symmetry of the decor is very pleasing to the eye. The dark blue walls are exceptionally striking and noble, and Irene adds a little lift and lightness with that lovely touch of white along the lower wall panel. This is a really unique and stylish dining room and I wish we could all gather around the table for a celebration feast!
If you have a room with vintage furniture, we’d love to see your photos. Send us an email here. Meanwhile thanks to Irene for offering such great inspiration!
