Traditional Chinoiserie

I went out on a limb this time and went for a traditional Chinese look for the two remaining chairs and side table that I recently bought.

With some convincing from my BFF and inspired by Waverly’s new line of Chinoiserie fabrics, purchased at Tonic Living, I chose black and red lacquer.

I kicked the chairs up a notch by adding old gold rub n’buff to the crevices, but maintained some constraint on the table, it would have been a little overboard (according to my daughter LOL).

The set is up for sale as it doesn’t fit into my house either in style or in the space to keep it. If you are local to Toronto and are interested, let me know. (SOLD)

And of course, I have to have a before and after. Quite a difference and saved from a life of banality :)

Sharing and being inspired at the following:
