Item Description

The original bookcase was constructed from a "Montanis De Lits" (Bed surround) normally found in the ch√Ęteaus of France. The subtle paint finish is accented with authentic gold leaf on the hand-carved moldings. Elegant and sophisticated, the Nils bookcase looks great in pairs or even trios for larger rooms.

The Antiquaire Nils Bookcase by Lillian August is available in the area from BigFurnitureWebsite.

Collection Description

Antiquaire is a collection of handcrafted antique reproductions available through a collaborative effort with one of Europe's renowned antique resources. Renowned interior designer, Lillian August, and her team scoured Paris flea markets and more for unique furniture to incorporate into modern lifestyles. Each and every piece is truly unique, utilizing artisan bench-made methods that embrace the natural characteristics of the wood for heirloom quality and one-of-a-kind style. To accurately reflect the antiques, the use of eco-friendly, reclaimed wood provides the aged quality of the originals. Season splits and surface crazing as well as inconsistencies in uniformity, size and color are intrinsic to the design of these authentic reproductions of French, Swedish, and English antiques in traditional and country design themes.

The Antiquaire collection is a great option if you are looking for Traditional furniture in the area.
