Model Description

Model Structure

The structure of the Provençal sideboard has a rounded shape in the two external corners and is equipped with three doors and 3 drawers framed by an elegant relief molding. The piece of furniture rests on a closed perimeter plinth, lightened by a thin frame. The top is embellished in its perimeter edge by an elegant "owl beak" workmanship which lightens its shape. The blue sugar paper lacquering takes up the typical delicate colors typical of the furnishings of the south of France, the internal panels of the doors and drawers are in a patinated white tone with the gilded frames in unused gold leaf. In the panel of the doors we have represented refined decorations with a scepter surrounded by ocher yellow baroques performed on a background in beige tones. Decorations are present on the doors, on the central panel of the drawers and on the sides. The harmony of soft colors is interrupted by gold leaf details.

Raw Material

The Provençal sideboard is made of solid linden wood, an essence that lends itself very well to the application of lacquer. The back, the internal bottom of the drawers and the shelves are in solid fir.


The sideboard is designed, built, lacquered and painted by hand in the Vangelista Mobili 1960 workshop. The uniqueness of our expertise in the production of Provençal style furniture derives from a long and in-depth study of the French decorations and lacquers applied in the 18th century, for which we have taken up and apply the same processes of the craft workshops of the time, thus reviving on our artifacts the splendid Provençal paintings. The lacquering and decorations are done by hand with natural products; the sideboard is lacquered by applying a "Gesso di Bologna" primer and subsequently the water-based tempera colours. Even the colors are created and mixed in our laboratory: the sugar paper blue colour, obtained by mixing grey, blue and white tempera, is then applied with a series of different brushes, also used for the decorations. All the decorations are lightly patinated with brown earth powders.

Historical notes and mobile curiosities

This Provençal sideboard is very spacious and has a great peculiarity that distinguishes it from all the other pieces of furniture, namely its baby blue color whose tone can change between blue and grey, ivory and indigo and from these gilded frames in gold leaf that make everything majestic and refined, perfect for making your decor elegant and classy.

This artifact has been studied by us in the smallest details, and given the strong request we have received from our customers, we have refined the techniques used in the original model so as to revive the same sensations and emotions that this splendid creation of the craft shops of the south of France gave in its time. The sideboard fits very well in entrances and dining rooms of prestigious seaside residences.
