This elegant sideboard, created in 1929 for “Maison D.I.M.” by famed designers René Jouvert and Philippe Petit, is a stunning example of French Art Deco design. Both timeless and versatile in design, it features a stunning Amboyna grain across the top, front and sides with and inlaid exotic fruitwood in a simple floral motif across the upper drawer faces, and having bone handles on each of its nine generous drawers, this piece is suitable for nearly any space.

Very well maintained, the wood is simply gorgeous in both colour and grain pattern. All 9 drawers slide easily.


About the Designers:

Maison D.I.M. (Decoration d’Interieur Moderne) is a French interior decoration and furniture creation house founded in Paris in 1919 by René Joubert, an architect and former employee of the renowned Maison Jansen, and Georges Mouveau. In 1924, after working alone for a year, René Joubert partnered with Philippe Petit, who had recently left the Primavera house.

The D.I.M. house manufactured incredible innovative and well-received furniture in the popular materials of the time like walnut, mahogany, and solid oak, as well as more luxurious pieces veneered with exotic woods such as rosewood, amboyna, lemon wood, or Macassar ebony with breathtaking grain patterns.
