Commode by Paul Aribe. France, circa 1912.

From Wikipedia:

The term originates in the vocabulary of French furniture from about 1700. At that time, a commode meant a cabinet or chest of drawers, low enough so that it sat at the height of the dado rail (à hauteur d’appui). It was a piece of veneered case furniture much wider than it was high, raised on high or low legs[2] and with (commode à vantaux) or without enclosing drawers.

  1. That settee is amazing! All of the pieces are gorgeous, but that one really caught my eye.

  2. Which do I want more? The floor screen or the commode? Although in the South, the word ‘commode’ does NOT mean cabinet! Closer to closet, as in water!
