    Boulle’s furniture is exclusively de luxe, or apparat, and only harmonizes with rich surroundings. It consists almost exclusively of consoles, armoires, commodes, cabinets, tables, desks and clock cases—forms that present large surfaces for the decoration that he carried to such perfection. His designs are very heavy. Occasionally they take the curved, or bombé forms. This swelling curve is especially found in the commodes tombeaux (tomb-commodes) and commodes à panse (paunch chests).
