Client Spotlight: Vintage Renaissance Console Table

Our customers Mary and Phil returned to our EuroLux antiques store in Newberry to pick out a vintage console table to go beneath a hand-painted antique trumeau mirror that Mary had found at an auction house.  The couple had previously bought an antique buffet from us and a pair of Italian floor lamps for their beautiful chateau style home, as you can see in my previous blog post: Client Spotlight: Antique French Country Louis XVI Buffet. 

Delivering vintage console to customer home

We were very happy to revisit their home to deliver the console table they chose. Here is the front of the house. We certainly admired the gorgeous stone exterior, however the photo doesn’t actually give a sense of how large the interior space is. Much like a French chateau, Phil and Mary have built a labyrinth into the side of a hill and this photo only shows the second and third stories. The entire lower level is built into the hillside.

Here is the French Renaissance style vintage console table or sideboard that the couple chose for the entryway. They bought it from us to go beneath the very large, antique, hand-painted trumeau mirror that Mary discovered at an auction house.  The mirror still needs to be hung, but we propped it up on the console table just to get the effect and to snap a photo. The ceilings are so high, but I captured just a bit of the beautiful antique wrought iron fixture hanging above it.

With your back to the console table, you look through another arch into the dining room so that diners will be able to see themselves in the trumeau while enjoying Phil and Mary’s hospitality!  Mary had just hung the handsome and huge antique iron chandelier over the antique dining table. A pair of antique hunting paintings and antique Louis XV sconces add to the feel of the chateau.  The carvings on the console table work well with the heavily carved antique Renaissance dining room chairs. The chairs are scheduled for re-upholstery with new fabric soon and one chair is lying on the floor in the photo as Phil asked for our instruction on how to tighten the joints of all of the chairs. This is a dynamic DIY duo for sure!

Traditional Bathroom

During the tour of their lovely home, I couldn’t resist snapping a photo of Mary’s amazing soaking tub in the master bathroom with a gorgeous view of the woods behind their home. I am truly jealous of that tub!

During this second delivery, Phil mentioned that he was now searching for a pair of thrones to sit in front of the huge stone fireplace in the living room. We’ve sent photos by email and hope we’ll be delivering the antique hunting thrones soon so that we can take more photos of this amazing chateau that Phil and Mary have built with such love and dedication. Meanwhile, the vintage console table has found the perfect home!

Client Spotlight: Vintage Louis XV French Country Sideboard

Brenda D. in Auburn, AL, found our EuroLux Home page on Houzz and purchased a very pretty vintage Louis XV French Country sideboard. She was looking for the perfect piece to go with her Eddie Bauer dining table and I think she made a great choice!

This is the vintage Louis XV French Country sideboard or server carved in golden oak and dating to about 1950.

We chose to bring it over from France because we thought the decorative detail was so delightful. It has a carved foliage and flower motif on the doors and apron. A scallop shell tops the attractive back panel, which could also be used to display plates. The lovely little cabriole legs and ornate hardware add the finishing touches.

Here is the vintage Louis XV French Country sideboard in Brenda’s dining room. It looks charming beneath the large wall mirror. The shape and style of the mirror frame pair nicely with the carved panel designs on the sideboard. The large chandelier casts a lovely light to set this scene off to perfection. And the sideboard does indeed go with the Eddie Bauer dining table, just as Brenda wished.

This picture from a little farther back shows the tray ceiling, which I just love! The indented ‘tray’ looks like it is octagonal and the color scheme on the painted ceiling is wonderful. It feels sophisticated, but also cozy and comfortable. The colors conjure up the atmosphere of a restaurant in France. (Not to put any pressure on your cooking, Brenda! I bet you have some great dinner gatherings in this dining room!)

Inside Vintage Louis XV server

The vintage Louis XV French Country sideboard is more than seven feet long so it is as practical as it is pleasing to the eye. The four doors and two drawers provide significant storage space for serving dishes, silverware, napkins, and all the other bits and pieces you want to keep conveniently to hand when entertaining.

If you want to browse around to find a lovely piece like this for yourself, you don’t have to be on Houzz. We have lots of other vintage and antique sideboards and buffets on our EuroLuxHome.com website .

Thanks for sending us the photos of the sideboard in your dining room, Brenda. We’re glad to know that are happy with your choice!
