Learn to Furnish your Home with XVIIIth Furniture

Its opulence intrigues and its refinement is unique. The XVIIIth furniture keeps fascinating, centuries after its creation. The prestigious auction house Sotheby’s will even dedicate it its next sales, on November 28th. It’s a godsend for those who didn’t have the chance to inherit some pieces from this innovating decorative period, often associated to the birth of design. And for good reason: the form meets the substance. Only imagine its curves and sculpted legs mixing with the contrast of your flooring, just like in Emmanuel Bossuet‘s apartment, or to new colours as Julia Rouzaud mixed it. Unless you invent a new function for it like Alexandra Diez De Riviera. Surprising, right? So think one second about the explosion it can become with more contemporary elements. A chair Harry Bertoia next to a Chinese lacquered chest of drawers, a painting from the Dutch School in the entrance, a Paris porcelain range with coloured table linen. The watchwords: be original. Let’s discover the noble and exotic materials Louis XV popularised. Let’s play with cane works, mother-of-pearl and mouldings. Let’s enjoy the mix between East and West. Let’s mix forgotten pieces of furniture and design best-sellers from the XXth century. Both of them, they will talk about influences and techniques. The first one will brag about them introducing the notion of comfort to the second ones. Who knows. To learn about it, just choose the piece that will make you dare in the catalog of Sotheby’s. We already did it!
