How are French-style antique sideboards different to modern alternatives?

When comparing modern sideboards with French antique furniture, 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 antique sideboards were made by craftsmen of days gone by who were determined to ensure that their pieces 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 antique French 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 storage, 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.

What are the benefits of a French antique sideboard?

Although you could find a modern sideboard in any furniture store, there is something truly special about investing in an antique or vintage French sideboard. There is no better way to bring character and personality to your room – an original French antique sideboard adds something to your space that 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 at a time when the emphasis was on longevity rather than passing fashions. Add a piece of living history to your room and choose antique French-style sideboards for an authentic way to add your own flair to any space in your home.
