Why Shabby Chic Furniture Makes A Great Addition To Your Home

March 16, 2014 | Comments Off on Why Shabby Chic Furniture Makes A Great Addition To Your Home

Furnishing your home has always been a matter of taste. There is no right or wrong way to go about it and what appeals to one person won’t appeal to another. However, there is one particular style that’s sure to be popular with most people and that’s shabby chic.

Since the introduction of the name “Shabby Chic” many years ago the interpretation has slightly altered with time, and whereas it once meant old or vintage pieces that had a very used or worn appearance, it can now include new items that have a more classic feel to them such as ornate French style furniture. Of course you can achieve a very pleasing look by combining the two together. French style furniture, due to its often intricate detail can happily sit alongside items that have been passed down from your Granny and can create a unique look for your home.

You may have inherited some vintage accessories from older members of your family; well why not choose some French style furniture on which to display them? How about a wooden console table with elegantly curved legs and some intricately carved details on the drawer front to place in the hall as an ideal place for your collection? Or what about an ornate headboard to transform your bed?

The look is open to many different types of interpretation and the possibilities are almost endless so it’s best to just go with whatever you like the look of. If you want to go for the romantic look, then this style of furniture will help you achieve your goal combining well with other items you may already own.

One thing is for certain, and that’s the unique look you will get when you go for this type of furniture and its classic lines mean it won’t be out of fashion in the next few months.
