Carved Japanese Garden Chest
We were commissioned by our client to recreate a preivous style "Japense Garden Chest"
She was after something to go in her bedroom to suit her orginal decor and we feel this piece will sit quite nicely along side her deep pink sidetable, picking out the hues in the fabric and black goes with almost anything!
I sourced her the piece and found something that would suit the size of the room and also allowing ample storage.
I love the original carved details and they look beautiful in black! Which I have used from the Lick range "Black 02".
To create a soft contrast between the black and freshly sanded, dark stianed and oiled sides of the drawers I used "Greige 01" on the inside of the drawers wich also complements the fabric beautifully, then both colours finised in a matt varnish for extra protection.
I have cleaned up the origanl handles and painted the carved backings in the black to tie the whole piece together.
The joy of upcycling is we can recreate most designs, yet no piece is the same, meaning each piece will still be unique! So have a browse through our archives for inspiration and contact us for an informal chat to start the journey of brining your vision to life!
