Is it French Gothic? Asian? Spanish Mission? This ultra cool, even weird, mid-century oak sideboard from France melds several design styles into an utterly unique creation! Check out the embossed leather inset center doors that feature both a gryphon (griffin) and lion rampant in shades of red, green, and yellow. Symbolizing courage and boldness, these creatures routinely appear on coats of arms. Flanking the painted doors, another pair of doors feature a weird, eagle-like animal with the head of a sea serpent. Between the doors, carved bearded gentlemen keep watch over these mythical beings. The buffet top has been thoughtfully crafted in a checkerboard pattern. Wrought iron look hinges and curvilinear skirt add a gothic effect, as do the black metal fleur-de-lis drawer pulls. A central trestle stretcher gives the piece something of a Spanish Mission feel. Measuring over 8 feet long and over 2 feet deep, this massive, masculine, and funky buffet will be prized by anyone who values unconventional furnishings. One thing
