The commode, a low chest of drawers, became fashionable in Paris in the early 18th century. The French word commode means ‘convenient’, and this elegant, practical type of furniture was indeed created to make life easier. This early Dutch example exhibits a mixture of influences from France, England and the Netherlands. The legs are identical to those of Dutch chairs.
