Pair of French Painted Louis XVI Style Console Tables with Mirrors
It is an absolute delight to showcase this gorgeous pair of French 20th Century Louis XVI style Painted Console Tables with Shaped Mirrors above. The console tables have a rectangular marble top with straight edges above a carved Guilloché frieze of mirrored egg and dart moulds with a panel of oval paterae in between which features to the centre and either side of the console tables. Four elegantly turned and carved fluted legs embellished with leaf carvings and paterae carvings and united with a geometric carved under tier H-form stretcher below. The carved stylized stretcher has a carved finial at its axis.
The console tables and mirrors have a wonderful paint finish showing a veil of the Adam Green paint colour over the top of the white finish beneath. The Adam Green paint colour is a strong and yet subdued green with a decadent history. This colour is inspired by the 18th-century style stalwarts, the Adam brothers, whose love of Greek architecture epitomized the neoclassical style of the era and it was frequently used during this time.
Having taken its inspiration from the epitome of furniture design of the 18th and 19th Century which embodied elegance and opulence it is no surprise that being surrounded by French furniture is the perfect guide for l’art de vivre (the art of living). The very best interior designers, hoteliers and homeowners have been a wonderful influence when demonstrating their taste.
French furniture has sophistication and elegance radiating from its use of ornate carvings, curved or geometric lines containing intricate details and by presenting itself with a wonderful finish, whether it be polished, painted or gilded – or indeed a mixture of any or all of these.
