Objects of Design #116: Vintage Chest of Drawers

Sometimes it’s just about changing one small thing to create a new thing that looks totally fresh. Take this chest of drawers. In the original brown wood, it would simply have looked old fashioned. Painted in the current fashion for pale greys or distressed whites it would have taken on a shabby chic appearance. But by choosing this soft graphite chalk paint, the vendor has created something that looks completely modern and different.

Suddenly, I’m looking at painted furniture with new eyes. What about you?
