Florida Road Trip 3: Antique Henry II Dining Chairs

After Greg and I decided to take a road trip to Florida to make a delivery to the Orlando area, Katrina in Alva, FL, purchased this handsome set of six antique Henry II dining chairs in our Etsy store. We were delighted that we could include this delivery to the Ft. Myers area on the way to visit my home town of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

We love this style of antique Renaissance Henry II dining chairs and buy as many sets as we can find during our antiques buying trips to France. We recently sold a similar set to the television show, Ozark, and you can read about that delivery trip here.

This particular set of antique Henry II dining chairs is especially nice as the scale is a bit larger than most. These antique chairs are carved in walnut and they show the patina of age on the wood frames. This is the kind of finish that you cannot buy in new furniture. The dining chairs date to around 1890 so they have certainly earned their patina!

The original embossed leather featured was especially detailed. There are scrolls, floral elements, roaring lion faces and even dragonflies!

When we pulled up to this amazing estate right on the river, we were stunned by the absolutely beautiful location! Katrina explained she is the caretaker of her brother’s estate and the whole family lives on the compound – her children were out mowing the grass when we pulled up. There is a huge pool with a water slide and waterfall on the side of this palatial home that faces the river.

And what a stunning view indeed! It seemed like paradise to us. Katrina explained that her brother had won the lottery after much hardship in his life and he has given her free reign to decorate the estate. Luckily for us, Katrina loves heavily-carved antique furniture – our specialty.

We ooohed and ahhhed over several pieces in her home on the way to place these regal chairs at a wrought iron table in the middle of the great room, right off of the kitchen. They fit right in with her Renaissance style decor!

She had recently painted the wall black and it really does create quite a dramatic effect with the marble floors and ornate, hand-carved built-in bookcases and mantel. The dark leather on the antique dining chairs blends in nicely with the black leather upholstery on the sofas in the great room.

Greg and I reminded ourselves to stop and buy a lottery ticket as we drove out of the compound gates! Next stop was my hometown of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida!

As we drove away from the family living in their beautiful estate, we were delighted to know that the set of French antique Henry II dining chairs had found such a happy home.

Florida Road Trip 2: Antique Louis XVI Dining Chairs

I hope you enjoy the next step in our Florida road trip… to deliver a set of antique Louis XVI dining chairs. In my last blog post I wrote about our trip to South Florida — where I grew up — to deliver a vintage Renaissance cabinet. Greg and I often joke that once we decide to take a road trip, it seems we always end up selling other pieces along the route. In this case, we were already heading to Lakeland, Florida, when Twila, an interior designer, reached out to us about a gorgeous set of twelve antique Louis XVI dining chairs she was interested in buying for her client Margaret in Jacksonville.

Margaret immigrated to the United States from Poland, and as she grew up in a home filled with beautiful European antiques as a child, it has been her dream to have her own French Chateau-inspired home. 

Chateau style home in Florida

As we drove up to the circular cobblestone driveway to Margaret’s house, we certainly were impressed with the classic French architectural styling of the home, complete with wrought iron railings and a romantic balcony! The formal landscaping just adds to the je ne sais quoi!

Dining Room with Antique French Louis

The set of twelve antique Louis XVI chairs that Margaret and Twila selected are hand-carved in walnut, crafted with a rich butterscotch leather upholstery, and date to circa 1890. They look amazing with the large circular antique table in the dining room. The butterscotch leather looks very pretty with the soft golden yellow walls and draperies.

The formal dining room also features a gorgeous Louis XV French Country Sideboard and a large, hand-carved Louis XV French Country mirror that pair perfectly with the antique table and antique chairs. The pretty herringbone parquet flooring and the romantic candelabra sconces and large crystal chandelier add more formal elegance, while the view of the formal garden through the series of large French doors steals the show! 

If only we could stay for a sumptuous French feast of Chateaubriand and linger over an excellent Bordeaux! 

We hope that Margaret enjoys the antique Louis XVI dining chairs in her beautiful home and that they conjure up the old European mood that she enjoys!

Antique Renaissance Dining Chairs Look Great in Today’s Homes

Antique Renaissance dining chairs look great in today’s homes! We buy many antique French Renaissance chairs from Europe and bring them back to the USA. Our customers are so delighted that they send us pictures of how amazing the chairs look in their dining rooms. For example, these antique Renaissance dining room chairs dating to 1900 feature regal lion carvings and metal handles and they look terrific around our customer Susan’s dining room table in Metamora, IL. See more in my Renaissance Dining room blog post here.

antiques and decor blog post

If you don’t know this style, you can check out our full description of the Renaissance Revival style of furniture on our website.  But as a quick guide, the original Renaissance era dates to 15th century Italy, when furniture and architecture was inspired by the classical arts of ancient Rome and Greece. The Renaissance Revival style then flourished again in 19th century France, when the newly wealthy middle class wanted large, ornate and heavily carved furniture.  These pieces have a dignified opulence, and they are perfect for people who enjoy comfortable but noble decor.

Antique French Dining Chairs

Here is another great example of four antique French Renaissance dining chairs in our customer Iris’ home in Texas. The brass handles on the chairs create a nice silhouette and the spindles set in the backs of the chairs also make a decorative statement.  Here’s a better view of the beautifully carved chair backs.

This shows you just how handsome the chairs look when your guests sit down for dinner! The oak chairs are carved in the Renaissance Henry II style, which is is very regal, emphasizing classical symmetry in details like arches, columns and finials. If you like this look, my post called What is the Renaissance Henry II Style of Antique Furniture? is a must-see!

Rich surface decoration in upholstery as well is in carvings is also a feature of Renaissance style dining chairs. We love the way our set of six French Renaissance dining chairs look in our customer Lenore’s dining room in Sapphire, NC. The vintage chairs were made around 1930 and they are beautifully upholstered in red and cream brocade. The spiral turning on the oak legs adds another decorative detail. See more about the Vintage Renaissance chairs in Lenore’s charming country cottage.

Client Spotlight: Antique French Louis XIII Dining Chairs

We have a lovely treat for you today, with photos of our antique French Louis XIII dining chairs in our customer Stephen’s home!

Antique French Louis XIII chairWe found a set of six fabulous antique French Renaissance Louis XIII style dining chairs on one of our recent buying trips in Europe. We guessed (rightly!) that if we bought them then we’d find a customer back in the USA who would love them too.

This is just one of the six chairs, and you can see the blue damask upholstery is a great way to add a dash of elegant color to a dining room.

The armless chairs are crafted with a walnut wood frame and they date to 1900.  They feature a lovely design of gently curved stretchers forming an X shape, accented by a majestic finial in the center of the X.  The strong shape beneath the seat is softened by the gentle blue upholstery.

Obviously Stephen B. in Cambridge, MD, agrees with us that these Louis XIII chairs are fit for a king, because he snapped up the whole set of six!

Traditional dining room with antique Louis XIII chairs

Stephen sent us some photos of the antique chairs in his dining room, and you can see how impressive they look! When I saw his emailed photo, I immediately said: “It’s like he picked the paint based on the chairs rather than the other way around!” Isn’t the color match between the walls and the chairs uncanny? Stephen obviously has an excellent eye for color and he chose well. Stephen commented: “Yes!!! The fabric matches the walls perfectly.”

Antique French Louis XIII chairs in dining room

This is another view of Stephen’s dining room. This room is so beautifully put together. The blue on the walls is a classic color that reminds us of some of the regal salons of Paris. Stephen said he found the other two dining chairs in an antique store in California and he also sleuthed out some terrific buffets for the room online. The chandelier is great too. Often people are nervous about having too large a chandelier over the table and they tend to err on the small side. Stephen went for it with this crystal extravaganza and it is perfect!

All in all, it’s a fabulous room and Stephen has an amazing eye for interior design.  Thank you Stephen for sharing these inspiring photos. We are so happy that you loved the antique Louis XIII chairs, and we think they look superb in your dining room. We wish Stephen many celebratory evenings with friends gathered around that table!

What is the Renaissance Henry II Style of Antique Furniture?

If you are looking for a handsome carved antique buffet or dining chairs for your traditional dining room or great room, then you will definitely want to know about the Renaissance Henry II style of antique furniture. You can also check out some regal Renaissance Henry II furniture for sale on our website.

Antique French Buffet Henry II Renaissance BuffetThe Henry II style of antique furniture was influential for much longer than the brief twelve year reign of this King of France from 1547 to his death in 1559. This important furniture style lasted through the reigns of five French monarchs. But the antique Henry II furniture we sell today in this style actually dates to the Renaissance Revival period in the late 19th century, when this very traditional look returned to favor.

Antique Henry II Dining ChairsFurniture in the Henry II style displays the values and aesthetics of the Renaissance, which means rebirth. This rebirth of classical arts and philosophies of ancient Rome and Greece arose in Italy in the 15th century and spread across Europe, influencing architecture and the decorative arts.

Typical decorative details evoked Greek and Roman mythology and architecture, with an emphasis on classical symmetry. You can see the symmetry in these lovely antique Renaissance Henry II style dining chairs crafted in wood and dating to 1900.

Furniture is also adorned with carved arches and columns, stately pediments and attractive finials. Figurative carvings include male and female figures, faces and heads. For example, this gorgeous antique French Renaissance Henry II sideboard or server boasts a crowned Queen carved at the top.

Antique French buffets or servers in the Henry II style are often crafted in beautiful oak or walnut wood, with a rich patina from more than a century of age. The typical buffet will boast columns and spindles, including spindled galleries to serve as plate racks. However, there are many varieties of decorative designs on these unusual pieces.

The furniture also was influenced by the Hunting style, which was led by the French fashion to furnish hunting lodges and chateaux with furniture carved with images of rural life.

Creative antique decor: antique French nightstand in the kitchenHere are some piece of furniture in this style that customers have bought from us. They sent us some wonderful photos showing the furniture in their homes for our customer spotlights.

Our customer Kathleen in Oklahoma bought this French antique nightstand in the Henry II style and she made the clever decision to use it as a kitchen cabinet, providing extra storage and display space.  The geometric walnut marquetry and lovely turned legs are nicely set off by the gray marble top and it looks terrific in her kitchen! See more photos and Kathleen’s full story here.

Henry II style buffets often have bas-relief figures or scenes on the doors. This is a great example, from our client spotlight: Renaissance Chairs and Buffet in Chateau Home, Illinois.

Bob H. in Prairie Grove, Illinois, bought this buffet for his French Renaissance chateau style home. The beautiful buffet is carved with a knight on horseback on the doors. Bob decorated the marble top with a vintage porcelain figure of an apothecary and antique mortar and pestle sets. Can you guess he worked as a pharmacist?

Antique French Dining ChairsIris in Texas bought these oak Henry II dining chairs from us, featuring carvings of birds, and a pair of lions gazing out from the finials. The attractive brass handles are also typical of this style. Renaissance Henry II style antique furniture is all elegant and classically appealing, showing the high quality taste of kings!

Customer’s Newberry Cam Davis Mansion and Antiques in Magazine

One of our most popular customer spotlights gave a tour inside Tamra’s Classic Newberry Mansion, complete with antique furniture purchased from us at EuroLuxHome.com.  So, we were delighted to come across a feature about Tamra’s home in Columbia Living Magazine: The Summer House. The article talked about some of the furniture Tamra purchased from us and we found out some new facts about Tamra’s house. Here is the update!

This is Tamra’s beautiful Greco-Roman mansion in Downtown Newberry, SC. It is so splendid it is hard to believe that at one time the house was at risk of being torn down because it was in such poor repair. Tamra and previous owners have put a lot of work into restoring it to its original glory when it was built in the 1890s!  Outside of Newberry House

According to the Columbia Living Magazine article, the house was originally owned by John Harrison “Hack” Summer, hence the name “The Summer House.”  It was built by Newberry contractor C. C. Davis, more often known as Cam Davis. A native of North Carolina, Cam Davis came to Newberry in 1884 to build the Newberry Cotton Mill. He went on to build many well-known residences, public buildings and churches in Newberry between 1884 and 1916. Pair of antique Mechelen buffetsWe discovered from the magazine article that The Summer House was designed by a 16-year-old. It’s amazing to think that such a young man could design this amazing neoclassical mansion! Craftsmen worked on the house in Newberry during the winter because in the summer they were working on the famous Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina. The magazine article drew attention to the pair of antique Mechelen buffets flanking the entryway. These are two of the pieces Tamra bought from us.

Antique Mechelen Buffet

The article praised the heavily-carved cabinets’ “beautiful woodwork and stained glass insets.” The carving and stained glass are typical of Mechelen furniture, as you can see in my blog post What is Mechelen Style Antique Furniture?

Antique French Table Chairs dining room

The formal dining room also received attention in the article, which made us happy as Tamra bought the French Country Louis XV extending refectory table in walnut from us, as well as two sets of antique French Hunting chairs dating to the 1880s. The article reads: One of their favorite rooms in the home is the formal dining room. “We’re not finished in this space, but we’ve got the parquet French walnut table with the French thrones as a centerpiece. There is really beautiful woodwork on the queens,” Tamra said.

It’s wonderful to find out more about this beautiful house that Tamra has decorated so elegantly. You can read the full Columbia Living Magazine article here and also see more photos of the room interiors and antique furniture in my original blog post: Antique French Furniture in Classic Newberry Mansion.

Client Spotlight: Antique French Renaissance Dining Chairs

We really admired this set of four antique French Renaissance dining chairs when we bought them and had them shipped back from Europe to America. We were delighted when Iris L. in Texas bought the antique French dining chairs and sent us a photo of them in her home.

Antique French Renaissance Dining Chairs

These are the antique French chairs carved in the Renaissance or Henry II style. The dining chairs date to about 1900 and they are very handsomely designed and carved in solid oak wood. We were impressed by the carvings of two birds nestled in the intricate flower design on the chair back. The pair of lions gazing out from the finials topping the chair posts also add a noble touch. The attractive brass handles on the top of the chairs are typical of antique French Renaissance chairs. In this photo, you can also see the legs with a carved bell or tassel just below the seat. These legs look wonderfully regal!

Antique French Dining Chairs

Iris sent us this photo of the four antique French Renaissance dining chairs in her dining room, and we love how they look! Iris agreed… she said “Love the Chairs.”
The chairs are the perfect match for Iris’ dining room, with that lovely wood floor and the very nice dining table. The traditional appeal of this dining room is hard to beat. The brass handles on the chairs create a nice silhouette ad the gallery of spindles set in the backs of the chairs also make a decorative statement. Overall – it’s a winner!

We are delighted that these beautiful antique French Renaissance dining chairs found such an elegant home. Thanks Iris for giving us a peek into your home!
