French Display Cabinets

For many people, the idea of antique furniture immediately conjures up images of the 18th Century French court, with its magnificent style and opulent elegance. The pervasive concept of French styling as the epitome of antique sophistication has led to even modern furniture manufacturers trying to incorporate many of the key elements of traditional French design into their contemporary mass-produced ranges. One of the reasons why French style furniture is so popular is the attention to detail shown by the original craftsmen. In the past, furniture-making was not just a career path but also an artform, and the idea of design for beauty as well as practicality was widespread. Even rustic furniture was created to be aesthetically pleasing as well as robust and practical. Small wonder, then, that antique and vintage French display cabinets are such a popular choice in both traditionally themed and contemporary homes. With a sense of style that demands attention, they not only create a focal point in any space, but they also bring a touch of luxury that takes the homeowner straight back to a bygone era of chic and sophistication. Find beautiful French display cabinets on the Vinterior website, and be inspired by vintage and antique pieces.

Fluid lines and exquisite craftsmanship – characteristics of French display cabinets

All too often, modern display cabinets are minimalistic and characterless. Designed to showcase the items inside rather than being a thing of beauty themselves, they can so easily fade into the background in any room. Meanwhile, antique or vintage French display cabinets are a work of art to be admired in their own right.

The hallmark of a French display cabinet is solid robustness paired with deceptively delicate-looking detailing. Often featuring narrow, tapering legs with curving lines and scrolls, French display cabinets are often made using dark, high quality, polished wood and frequently have inlays or gilding to add extra glamour.

French display cabinets come in many styles, sizes, colours and shapes. Some have been painted; some have double doors while others are single cabinets. Overall, however, the effect is one of a bygone era of effortless chic.

The benefits of buying antique or vintage French display cabinets

If you are wondering why you should pay the extra for a vintage or antique display cabinet, one look at an original piece will make it clear why the investment is worth it.

Filled with a character and flair which no mass-produced item could possibly hope to capture, an original French display cabinet has a personality and authenticity all of its own. There is no better way to bring a sense of history and a touch of the past into your home than with a traditional piece of fine French vintage or antique furniture.

Since antique and vintage pieces were also made at a time when furniture was made to last, you can also have the benefit of adding a long lasting display cabinet to your home that will continue to withstand the test of time.
