for the love of furniture
hello guys! i’m running in and out once again (my boy’s back in town). but i had to post these pretty presents. ok they’re not really presents but they’re so delicious they may as well be laudree!
actually they’re inedible furniture finish samples from the studios kindred spirit, delphine groult. she wrote me a couple weeks ago about her furniture and i loved it right away cause everything about it is special. now that i have the swatches, it’s pure joy to see and touch.
the glossy finishes are like nail polish and the are antiqued look authentic, not overdone. you can tell everything is made by hand.
this trim is so tiny in person
and edges and lines are painted to a tee with exacting precision.
the carvings are so detailed but not fussy or serious
and carvings are made directly on the piece.
mmmh! well anyway just wanted to share, you can check out her website at delphinegroult.com.
i don’t have a lot up yet but am adding her pieces to my site and showing them to galleries. some of her other chests are here. she’s a brilliant artist who’s medium is furniture. a girl after my own heart.
i love this one especially now that i know the carving is authentic.
and like all artists, she has many dimensions. this is some of her artwork
she has this great dark side too that i can’t even show you here. my parents read my blog :)
anyway i have to go but a quick ps: i got a chance to see 6 apartments in the
setai today. this bedroom was enough convincing for me. mas manaña!
