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!)
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!
