Antique Chiffoniers
The Antique Chiffonier is a piece of furniture that was mainly built around the Regency, William IV and the Victorian periods. It is a small antique sideboard or side cabinet, constructed usually with an upper tier (shelf) along with a mirrored or polished back and was for your dining room, library or drawing room. They sometimes have a cellaret inside for storing wine and a top drawer for storing cutlery. The top shelf was for displaying fine ornaments, but the back was to stop any splashing of food onto your wall when serving, It was a dual purpose piece of furniture. They were commonly made out of Mahogany and Rosewood and are very elegant pieces of antique furniture. The Chiffonier is a useful item, with lots of storage but also can be very decorative. Although they are quite simple in design, they always were made using the finest quality figured timbers along with nice decorative features such as turned columns or pierced brass decoration.
