Antique French Cabinets

Filter By

Antique furniture has often proved to be an inspiration for modern furniture manufacturers, and arguably, few styles have shown to be as popular as French traditional design. During the 18th century, the French court was a byword for luxury, opulence and sheer magnificence. The furniture of the era was defined by its exquisite design, sophisticated style and unique attention to detail. At the time, furniture-making was not just a job but an artform, allowing a true expression of the craftsman’s ability and passion for his work. The result was a beautiful piece of furniture that was as beautiful as it was useful. Although today’s modern replicas of traditional French furniture may boast some similar design elements, the quality and craftsmanship of the original cannot be recaptured. Authentic antique French cabinets are therefore still highly sought after among homeowners who long for furnishings that exude the luxury, opulence and regal chic of a bygone era. Discover a range of stunning antique French cabinets here at Vinterior, and find all the inspiration you have been searching for amongst our impressive collection.

Antique French cabinets – intricacy and attention to detail as standard

Today, modern furniture is often designed to favour function over quality. Manufacturers mass-produce pieces which serve a practical function without a thought for beauty or individuality. Antique French cabinets were created at a time when character was paramount. Each piece received loving attention from its craftsman, and the result was a cabinet with wonderfully fluid lines, exquisite carving and a solid robustness that has stood the test of time.

Any antique French cabinet is almost a work of art in itself. While they come in many shapes, colours, sizes and designs, they are all made from high quality wood and have details that make them stand out from the crowd.

Many are made from rich, dark and solid wood like mahogany or rosewood, although some are painted for a lighter, more chic appearance. Inlays are a common feature of antique French cabinets, as are scrolls, gilded detailing and intricate carvings. Tapering or curving legs appear frequently on antique cabinets, while marquetry is another feature that can be seen frequently.

Whatever the style or design of the piece, the overall effect is one of eye-catching elegance.
