We always like to have a stock full of interesting antique items. The latest unique addition in our collection is this wonderful 18th Century French Oak Enfilade. An enfilade is a type of sideboard. This particular piece is a three-door enfilade with two small drawers in fluted freeze moulding. Sitting on pointed cabriole legs, it has just the right amount of ornate detailing which gives it an elegant appeal.
Ever wondered what exactly this item is and how it differs from a sideboard, a buffet or a dresser?. An enfilade is a traditional elongated piece of furniture that is usually shorter than a buffet. Enfilades have multiple cupboard doors. These cabinet doors conceal connected compartments in a row which is a typical feature of enfilade. The word enfilade originates from the French word “enfiler” which means “to thread.
Although enfilades were a common feature in dining rooms or kitchens, in modern homes you can use these for multiple innovative uses. Other than being visually appealing, these also fit in well in the modern décor with their clean lines and simple details. They are practical, versatile and functional with the ample storage space that they provide.
