The lines are reminiscent of Paris in the 19th century.
Curvy shabbiness with a touch of European elegance.

All the wood was repurposed. The boards were originally part of a checkout counter in an old bakery that recently closed.

Beautiful curves that have...

...aged gracefully

My latest commission is a full-length mirror with a touch of European elegance. Slightly distressed, with subtle curves, it became the focal point of newly renovated master bathroom.
