I stumbled across this photo white browsing the Desire to Inspire Blog. What really impresses me is that Antonio Martin, a San Francisco interior designer took a very traditional side board in the Louis Phillipe style, and put it into a modern home. Louis Phillipe style is derived from the French in the 19th century. It takes its name from the monarch who reigned from 1830 to 1848. Key features are simple rounded lines with very little ornamentation, usually in a medium to dark wood finish. Many Louis casegoods also feature hidden storage drawers. Paired with sleek stainless steel and glass, your traditional furniture becomes modern in it’s own way.
