Shabby Chic Furniture
Shabby Chic things are frequently painted with many layers, hence revealing places that were clearly timeworn. Washed-out and bleached are techniques frequently used on the design. Classic Linen in earth-tones, or floral shapes with pale colours, cotton ticking designs, are common of in the world of shabby chic fashion.
Flower landscapes are not unpopular within the shabby-chic style of decoration.
This is a gentle, calm, female, intimate fashion of decoration that seems engaging and comfortable.
The fashion started in Britain and is intended to evoke the kind of ornamentation often on display in big country houses where there are distressed and washed-out drapes and old chintz sofas, and old paintwork. Shabby chic’s end consequence would be to reach a total impact that is refined, rather than the sentimentally adorable.
