Sneak Peak: Antique French Furniture Arriving Soon

Our new container of French antique furniture has not yet arrived, but if you love beautiful antiques we’re giving you a sneak peek at the beauties now sailing across the Atlantic Ocean! We personally selected these fabulous antiques (read more about our antiques buying trips in Europe here) because we think our customers in the USA will love them.

Antique Art Nouveau Buffet Sideboard You can see all the new container furniture here. The pieces are available for pre-order now so you can snap them up first. As usual, you will get free shipping in the Continental USA and some parts of Canada.

Or why not browse through some of our favorite pieces in this blog post, starting with this gorgeous antique Art Nouveau server or sideboard.

Dating to 1900, the Art Nouveau cabinet is unusual and versatile.
It’s 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.

We also have the matching Art Nouveau buffet, table and chairs, if you want a complete set!

Heavily Carved antique French cabinet

We are so blown away by this antique French cabinet or buffet with its impressive jester carvings…we almost don’t want to let it go! The walnut buffet dates to 1900 and the whimsical carved figure on the top cabinet door looks like a playful jester, while the ornate carvings also include two faces gazing out to keep watch over your family! A red marble counter top provides a handsome space for your serving dishes or cheese board while the plate rack is the perfect place display your favorite platters. This outstanding antique French cabinet or buffet is sure to become a family heirloom.

1920 Rococo French Chairs

We also have these six vintage French Louis XV Rococo dining chairs with red upholstery on their way to us from France.

These flirty darlings are sure to seduce you! Made of walnut wood in 1920, the charming Rococo chairs look like they’ve come from a Parisian salon where ladies lunch, laugh, and talk about the last fashions.  They’ll look chic in your dining room, or as occasional seating in the living room, a lady’s boudoir or guest bedrooms

 

Antique French Hunting Sofa

This ornate antique French Hunting style sofa was crafted in oak in about 1880 and it is handsomely carved all over. The antique oak sofa will look incredible in your living room or great room, or imagine it as seating in your large foyer or entryway. Opulently carved flourishes, finials and barley twist posts make this a decadent delight. The upholstery could be updated to suit your own decor, creating a custom look!

These are just a few of our favorite things… see all the sneak peak French antiques at this link. We can’t wait for them to arrive!

Client Spotlight: Antique Art Nouveau Buffet

We were delighted to have an unusual antique Art Nouveau buffet in our gallery, and we were even more delighted that it found such a great home!

Kevin and Candice in Summerville, SC, had been looking for years for the perfect piece to put in the hallway of their new home by the South Carolina coast. Kevin reports that Candice is normally slow to decide on big purchases, so he didn’t expect to find anything when they stopped in our EuroLux Home antiques store in Newberry. However, when Candice spotted the gorgeous Art Nouveau buffet, she stopped in her tracks.

French antique Art Nouveau Buffet

It was the right size and the right color of walnut to match with their collection of Arts and Crafts furniture. It didn’t take Candice very long at all to decide this was exactly the right piece – taking Kevin completely by surprise! Doesn’t it look wonderful in their home?

Antique French Art Nouveau Buffet

We don’t see Art Nouveau buffets very often, as the style was only prominent from approximately 1890 to 1910 before the Art Deco style swept the scene. The Art Nouveau style of furniture is quite feminine and pretty. It features organic motifs, such as flowers, vines, leaves, or fruit, and it is especially known for dramatic curves and swirls. The focus was on craftsmanship as a reaction against growing industrialization and mass production at the end of the 19th century. These rare pieces are especially beautiful and the patina of the walnut on this particular Art Nouveau buffet is just stunning.

vintage Louis XV French Country dining chairs

Kevin and Candice also picked out this set of pretty vintage Louis XV French Country dining chairs for the dining room off the hallway. The vintage chairs date to 1930. The charming chairs are crafted in oak wood and they are upholstered in yellow gold velveteen. The Louis XV chairs boast a delicately shaped back with sweet and subtle carving as well as lovely French cabriole legs.

vintage Rococo chandelier

Finally, Kevin and Candice chose a dramatic vintage French Rococo chandelier to light up the entryway. The 10-light metal chandelier dates to around 1950 and it is lavishly adorned with the decorative embellishments and curvy bracket arms that you’d expect from the Rococo style. What a pretty sight it will all make when the chandelier is hung!

Thank you Kevin and Candice for sending the photos of the antique Art Nouveau buffet in your lovely home. We hope it brings you many years of joy!
