Armoires really are the flagships of French regional furniture. One can often tell the age and town of manufacture just from a few square inches of wood. Louis Philippe pieces (c.1830-50) are simple, elegant, beautifully made and restored and well suit Georgian, Victorian and modern homes. The fin de siecle Louis XV beasts are nothing if not flamboyantly French. Original Louis XV pieces (c.1740-1780) as well as regional armoires range from fine to rustic and are rather magical. Pieces made before say 1830 tend to be in chestnut, cherry or oak. Other timbers were either unavailable or have rotted away. There is quite a lot of 19thC walnut but little mahogany. Cherry is the warmest timber and has the most immediate appeal. People often seem to get into the historical/regional aspects of the furniture and get increasingly into the 'hardcore' chestnut peasant side of things. Several of our customers tell me that to wake up facing an 1780s' marriage armoire, with its folksy carved birds, garlands etc, is to start the day happy. Or something.
