Régence Painted Oak Buffet, Three Doors, France, c.1730
Régence Painted Oak Buffet, Three Doors, France circa 1730. The handsome simplicity of this antique French buffet is due to the symmetrical placement of the three cabinet doors with a single drawer in the centre. This elegant balance of the doors and drawer with deep moulding and an arch to define the central cabinet door are hallmarks of the influence of architecture on furnishings notable at the beginning of the eighteenth century. Both the left and right front corners have a curved edge that echoes the line of the arch with a deeply grooved pattern to accentuate the curve. The sides are paneled and feature two vertical recessed sections that like the front of the buffet use depth to highlight the area with light and shadow. The cabinet doors have large iron hinges mounted on the exterior that become part of the decorative effect of the buffet. All of the doors and the drawer open to reveal storage along with the bright red fabric used to line the interior. The red is such a contrast to the pale painted color of the exterior! But it is especially French and we left it inside as it made us smile. The fabric may be easily removed and the interior left alone or new fabric may be used instead. The top of the buffet shows the antique oak timber and was never painted as the durability of the oak was a desirable feature for use and for ease of care.
