Item # LFALO2779
Antique French Louis XVI style solid walnut enfilade buffet, circa early 1900s, found in Mont Saint-Michel, an island commune in Normandy. This elegant enfilade with its straight lines and wonderful patina, has three drawers over four paneled doors. It features neoclassical detailing, including curved and fluted stiles, and gilt bronze trim and hardware. Raised on fluted toupie feet with bronze sabots.
It provides excellent storage and a great surface for serving and display. The narrow depth of this versatile piece makes it perfect for a foyer, hallway, dining room, or as a TV cabinet.
The French word "enfilade" in architecture refers to a series of salons or rooms, formally aligned with one another, that provide a sweeping view through the entire suite of rooms, where on one walked "on file" or "en filade." The enfilade served to organize space and vision and is a common feature found in many of France's grand palaces from the Baroque period. The term later became associated with large scale buffets that had more than two cabinet doors. When open, all of the doors reveal interior storage bisected by a shelf that effectively doubles the amount of usable space.
