Restora­tion

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Decorating -

I be­lieve that the most im­por­tant thing is what you do next with a piece. Fur­ni­ture can look com­pletely dif­fer­ent with the small­est of changes, such as if you re­place a wax fin­ish with lac­quer or oil for a new ef­fect. If I buy a lamp for ex­am­ple, I might re­place the shade with one made from hand- printed wall­pa­per and change the wire coat­ing from plas­tic to silk. It’s a ques­tion of keep­ing some of a piece’s orig­i­nal­ity, while adding a more mod­ern sen­si­bil­ity.
