Model History

Century of use

The austere shape of the structure supported by 4 legs in the shape of an inverted truncated pyramid determines the typicality of the Louis XVI Direttorio style. The Direttorio style was in vogue in France between 1795 and 1803. It is characterized by a sober construction and simple and linear shapes. The weekly chest of drawers is reproduced from the original model which is located in the province of Vicenza and dates back to the end of 1700.
