Antique furniture – Your Palatial Home

21 Oct 2014 › Posted by Schweitzerlinen

Schweitzer Linen for years has used antique furniture and works of art as inspiration for our wonderful designs for embroideries and prints. Also during our yearly photography sessions we use antiques to create our sets. Thus we have developed a wonderful collection of genuine antiques.

We have an extensive collection available to our customers that is sure to be a welcomed addition to your interior decoration. Over the next couple of blogs we will feature pictures from famous palaces and castles from around the world highlighting the décor. You will be amazed at how easily you can transform your own home into one fit for a king.

In September we were traveling along the Côte d’Azur and we toured the famous Princes Palace of Monaco and many rooms featured pieces of antique furniture similar to what we have purchased. Each room was more breathtaking than the next and now we can help you achieve a similar look. Each piece we are showcasing here can easily be incorporated into your home and tie beautifully with the Schweitzer Linen bedding.

French Boulle Game Table

Exceptional 1900’s French Boulle style game table decorated overall with scrolled arabesques on red and ebonized surface. Featuring an elaborately inlaid overall with brass scrolled foliage and Louis XV style frame with complex bronzed inlay with bronze detailing. The top of the table folds over to reveal a green felt-lined playing surface that turns into a game table. Lovely in a curved silhouette and raised on cabriole legs with lion head cartouche mounts to the shoulder, and sabot feet. Makes a stunning entry way table! This is a replica of an original Boulle game table. Made in France in the late 1900’s.
The style Boulle became known after French cabinetmaker André-Charles Boulle, a master of marquetry and considered to be the preeminent artist in the field of marquetry. His fame led to his name being given to the fashion he perfected of inlaying brass and tortoiseshell, known as Boulle. The distinctive type of inlay that Boulle developed and that bears his name consists of tortoiseshell with inlay in brass, pewter, or copper. His influence continued into the late 19th Century.
