Item # LFALO2149
Early 19th century French period Empire buffet handcrafted of oak near Mont Saint-Michel, an island commune in Normandy, having two drawers over two doors flanked by support columns with original gilt-bronze capitals. Each column ending in gilt-bronze mounts above half-bun feet. The interior has a single shelf. The narrow depth of this versatile piece makes it perfect for a foyer, hallway, dining room, or as a TV cabinet or console.
The elegant simplicity of the Empire style allows this piece to mix well with modern and traditional interiors. The Empire period was Neoclassic in style. It was a period inspired by the decorative motifs and characteristics of Greco-Roman models, a French style intended to clearly express the imperial majesty of Napoleonic France. Balance and symmetry were foremost as they had been during the end of the 18th century. Surfaces were flat and corners sharp. Columns and pilasters were common.
