Remember the saying, ‘if only walls could talk’? Well, the same phrase could apply to furniture – beautiful furniture bearing the charming character scars of long and loving service. If you have a fave piece that’s been in the family since forever, or you’ve bought the perfect specimen, use colour to highlight it just as an artwork, hung low, does here.
A little bit of this, a little bit of that – embrace the old, bring in the new and let texture and calming pinks or blues bridge the gap between now and then. Here, a contemporary drum shade covered in a hand-blocked pink fabric teams with a glass lamp base, which rests on a metal table worn and textured by time.
