What does an antique buffet look like?
A brief overview of the different types.

Antique buffet cabinets:

This type of furniture includes large cabinets with a wide base and a top, often lavishly decorated with carvings, inlays or ornate ornamentation. Buffet cabinets in the Baroque or Rococo style may have curved lines and floral motifs. They are often made of fine woods such as walnut or oak and may have glass doors like showcases to display tableware or other decorative items.

Antique kitchen buffets:

They are usually functionally designed pieces of furniture that are a combination of cabinets, shelves and work surfaces. They are often solidly built and may be less decorative than more formal buffets. Early kitchen buffets might be made of oak and have a simple but sturdy construction.

France:

They feature elegant, sleek designs and are often richly decorated with gilded hardware, carvings, or mother-of-pearl inlays. They may contain glass cabinets or marble tops and may be designed in a variety of styles, such as Louis XV or Louis XVI. 19th-century buffets could be ornately crafted and feature numerous ornaments.

Founding period:

Buffets from the Wilhelminian period often represent a mixture of different styles and often have a robust construction. They may be simpler than their more ornate Baroque or Rococo predecessors, but still be made of high-quality materials such as walnut. Buffets from the Wilhelminian period may feature simple carvings or geometric patterns and be designed to be more functional.

At what age does it become antique?

The age at which a buffet is considered antique can vary. Generally, pieces of furniture are considered antique if they are at least 100 years old. Therefore, buffets from the late 19th century or earlier could be considered antique. However, it is important to note that the term "antique" can be interpreted differently depending on context and personal opinion.

Sustainable furniture that lasts for generations

One of the biggest advantages of antique buffets is their sustainability. Unlike modern furniture, which is often made from materials that have a short lifespan, antique buffets were built to last. These pieces have already stood the test of time and have been passed down from generation to generation. By purchasing an antique buffet, you are not only acquiring a beautiful and functional piece of furniture, but you are also protecting the environment by opting for a sustainable solution.
