From mediaeval pieces to contemporary design, Furniture auctions traverse the legend of the centuries, encompassing all styles through to the most functional aesthetic. A combination of the beautiful with the useful, furniture comes in the form of wardrobes, bookcases, sideboards, credenzas, desks, cabinets, bedside tables, chests, commodes, consoles and corner cupboards, occasional tables, beds, screens, writing and slant-front desks, tables and showcases.
For those who love classical pieces, these online furniture sales provide mediaeval chests, Renaissance cabinets, 18th century commodes stamped from mediaeval to contemporary design by Charles Cressent, Thomas Hache, B.V.R.B, Jean-Henri Riesener and their ilk, and other items of fine workmanship.
But those unmoved by the Louis XIV style may prefer French Regency dressers, Louis XV gaming tables, rolltop desks from the Transition period, Louis XVI bonheurs-du-jour writing tables, Directoire rest beds or Empire tripod occasional tables.
Aficionados of the "Neo" can bow down and adore 19th century Neo-Gothic or Neo-Renaissance pieces, while followers of modernism can go for austere architects' tables.
