Rod and Vicki F. in Centerton, AR, sent some spectacular photos of the new Louis Philippe sideboard they bought from us. The Louis Philippe sideboard is crafted in solid wood with a wonderful dark rustic pecan finish. It is made by one of the most reliable furniture makers that we work with and their prices are very reasonable. Here’s a photo of the sideboard:
With four doors and four drawers, the sideboard provides plenty of storage. You will also notice the wonderful French cremone hardware that gives this piece an authentic French accent! The sideboard measures nearly eight feet long at 93 inches long, so it is quite an impressive piece of furniture as well as a very practical one.
Rod and Vicki say they are thrilled with the sideboard. That lovely leather chair looks like a perfect spot to curl up with a bourbon and a good book in front of the fire!
In general the Louis Philippe style is quite unfussy and with little ornamentation, but it puts the emphasis on the beauty of the wood and its grain, especially darker woods. The style harks back to the 19th century, and the reign of Louis Philippe between 1830 to 1848. The simpler lines create a sense of subtle and refined luxury. The Louis Philippe style works perfectly in Rod and Vicki’s home. I love their wood floors and how beautifully the wood furniture and leather chairs and ottoman work with the flooring. It all looks very smart and luxurious but also welcoming and relaxed.
Thanks Rod and Vicki and we hope you continue to enjoy your Louis Philippe sideboard!
