Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Directoire furniture is far more restrained than pieces from the previous Louis XVI style. It features less elaborate ornamentation and generally embraces a purer Classical decoration. This can be seen, for example, in the unadorned fluted columns extending vertically on either side of the piece.
The rich colour of the wood lends a certain grandeur and weight to the commode. The medallion brass handles and lock escutcheons create a contrast adding further gravitas to the piece.
