French Antique Furniture

French antique furniture is renowned today—and has been for centuries—for the beauty of its design, the unmatched elegance of its craftsmanship, and the sophistication of the materials and techniques employed in its creation.

Mayfair Gallery’s exceptional collection of French antique furniture includes examples by some of its most celebrated makers, including the ébénistes (or cabinetmakers) Alfred Beurdeley and François Linke, the bronze founder Ferdinand Barbedienne, and the silversmith Falize Frères.

Browse our collection below to discover superb examples of antique furniture in styles ranging from the Rococo of Louis XV and the Neoclassicism of Louis XVI and the Napoleonic Empire period, through to the splendour and material decadence of the Second Empire and the Belle Époque.
