12 Oct THE LOVE OF LACQUER
“I look at every piece of furniture and every object as an individual sculpture.”
– Kelly Wearstler
BEFORE | GREEK KEY CHEST
We were so excited to find this vintage beauty, no doubt the original prototype for many modern furniture designers. What a surprise when we opened the drawers to see it was made by Kittinger, a six generation strong furniture manufacturer since 1886. (They even made pieces for the White House!) Solid wood and and structurally sound, we knew this could be turned into a chic piece good as new, with a simple color change.
Voila! The wonders of white ring loud and clear in this freshly lacquered chest of drawers. A perfect piece for an entry or a dresser for a guest room, if there had been two we would have placed them as nightstands in a client’s master bedroom. Stop in to our store to see this and other vintage pieces we have recently refurbished in our studio.
