Viking style dining room in oak
Width: 73'' ¼ 186cm
Height: 83'' ½ 212cm
Depth: 25'' ¼ 64cm
This dining room composed of a dresser, a serving trolley and a table without the chair, was made in the late 19th century in oak in the Viking style.
Indeed, its sculpted decoration takes its inspiration in the Viking esthetic and the idea we conceive about it the second half of the 19th century. Relatively simple, it is composed of monstruous heads on the mounts and the feet and bas-relief decorations on the doors. The lines of the furniture remains quite refined.
This viking style also called « dragon style » or « drakstill » is a north version and more precisely from Norway, of “Art & Craft” movement of the end of the 19th century. It promotes a return to the past in architecture and furniture by choosing shapes that remind the viking ornaments such as the organic scrolls, snakes, or dragons, a repertoire supplied by the archeological discoveries of the viking boats between 1867 and 1903.
