Masters of Artistic Furniture
Would you like to live as the precious queen Marie-Antoinette once did when she lived in the beautiful Versailles castle? Then furnish your home with items from the Louis-Seize period, during which French Ébénistes created artistic furniture masterpieces.
Some of the most famous French artistic carvers were Adam Weisweiler, David Roentgen and Jean Henri Riesener, who completed his apprenticeship with Jean-François Oeben. All of these Ébénistes have German roots, they emigrated to France in the 18th century due to the German guild system.
The Who's Who of high society at the time decorated their salons with the most classical and highly elegant furniture these masters could produce. It is these same items which are most desired by antique collectors today.
