The china cabinet is opulent but not overly adorned, with modest detailing at the top, and swag-shaped drawer pulls. Light and airy sheer draperies are voluminous but not overwhelming. Finally, the chandelier adds a touch of rococo to the space with its leafy shapes and abundant glass ornamentation.
Dining chairs around a minimally embellished table have a curvy back that is deeply tufted on the outside. The fridge around the seat of the chairs is different, but adds the feminine touch that rococo style is known for. The repeat of the fringy feel from the chandelier to the chairs helps tie the look together.
Another hallmark of Baroque era interiors was marquetry of the type that is featured on this stunning round dining table. This era fueled the rise of great furniture designers and cabinet-makers, who were leading artists in the field of inlaying ebony wood with tortoise shell, brass and other metals. You don’t need many pieces of marquetry to make a statement and here, the table tales center stage under the opulent, but slightly modern crystal chandelier. The characteristics of the period are carried through the room with the unadorned wall panels, embellished buffet and damask upholstered chairs.
I remember that the moment she bought it she had thought of the space in the kitchen. She is an excellent cooker and she has always wanted to have a spacious kitchen. So, instead of using some chairs she used this banquette. She saved a lot of space and you can feel very comfortable and cozy when you sit at the table.
