Antique French Louis XV Style Cherry Enfilade Buffet, circa 1820
The clean and simple lines of this antique French enfilade buffet circa 1820 enable it to be used with ease in a variety of interiors. The beautiful patina of this antique cabinet has been acquired through years of waxing and polishing and gives a glow and depth to the finish not available with reproductions. Please look at the pleasing symmetry of the three doors and the balanced profile of the apron between the two front legs. The three cabinet doors have large curved moulding at the top of each door while the moulding has a series of undulating curves of a smaller scale that complement the cabinet doors. Even the curved end of the front legs have a shape known as a "coquille" (French for shell) that repeats the curved design. The cabinet doors have a recessed panel that accentuates the curve and depth of the moulding when light plays across the façade. The term "enfilade" has architectural origins. Originally used to describe the eighteenth century pattern of symmetrically lining up successive doorways for persons to walk "on file" or French "enfilade" it became associated with large scale buffets that had more than two cabinet doors. The three doors on this antique enfilade buffet qualify it as an enfilade especially since it does not have any drawers unlike a true buffet which only ever has two cabinet doors with drawers above. When open all of the doors reveal interior storage bisected by a shelf that effectively doubles the amount of usable space.
