Center table with natural voluptuous motifs of Louis XV grandeur
This outstanding Louis XV-inspired center table is lavishly carved with the naturalistic, voluptuous motifs. The table design reached the height of fashion during the Louis XV period and, in keeping with decorating dictates, they were often considered more a part of the architecture than merely a piece of furniture.
As a rule, it was believed that no single element of the 18th century interior should be considered on its own. Every element from upholstery to hardware served to unify the design of the room. A console table of different height which we call a center table now, then, was considered an integral part of the wall and of the entire room.
Displaying a superb degree of artistry, this table exemplifies the Louis XV era with grace and charm.
