French Style Sideboards

Filter By

There is no denying that French style furniture exudes an elegance and style that is hard to beat. So much so, in fact, that many people immediately think of traditional French pieces when imagining antique and vintage furniture. It isn’t difficult to see why French styling has proven to be so popular over the years. The magnificent opulence that is synonymous with the court of King Louis XVI is very much evident in antique and vintage French style sideboards, and this has led to countless furniture manufacturers in recent years trying to emulate a similar elegance and sophistication in their contemporary collections. Discover beautiful French style sideboards listed at Vinterior, and get inspired to create a stunning French-themed home that will never fail to impress.

How are French style sideboards different?

When comparing modern sideboards with vintage or antique French style pieces, the primary difference lies in the craftsmanship. While practicality was equally important then as it is in today’s modern designs, beauty also had a key role to play, and French craftsmen of days gone by were determined to ensure that their sideboards not only served a functional purpose but also were aesthetically pleasing.

Unlike mass-produced modern furniture (even that which has been designed with classic styles in mind), an authentic vintage or antique French style sideboard has not been manufactured, but has been truly crafted. The loving attention that has been paid to its detail is clear to see, and the result is not just a piece of practical and useful furniture, but also a piece of artwork.

French style sideboards come in a plethora of colours, styles and designs. Many feature the beautifully elegant and intricately carved legs that are so characteristic of French furnishings, and inlays, scroll detailing, curving shapes, marble tops and gilding are just some of the features commonly seen.

While many of the pieces are highly detailed and dramatic, others are minimalist and effortlessly sophisticated. Regardless, the overall effect is always one of practicality paired with chic elegance.

The benefits of an antique or vintage French style sideboard

Although you could find a modern sideboard in any furniture store, there is something truly special about investing in an antique or vintage piece.

There is no better way to bring character and personality to your room – an original French style sideboard adds something to your space which no mass-produced item could ever hope to provide.

Of course, you will also benefit from a long lasting and sturdily constructed piece of furniture that was crafted in a time when the emphasis was on longevity rather than passing fashions. Add a piece of living history to your room and choose antique or vintage French style sideboards for an authentic way to add your own flair to any space in your home.
