This stunning pair of vintage French chests of drawers are so lovely!
They would work particularly well in a bedroom as large bedside chests. They would also look fabulous in a sitting room, perhaps on either side of a fireplace or window with two large lamps sat on top.
The chests have all of those characteristics so beloved of French furniture, lots of lovely curves and carving detail. The top of the piece has a gently curve to it and there is lovely carving on each of the drawers along with pretty painted metal handles.
The plinth of each chest is particularly pretty with a fan shaped carving in the centre. The chests are sat on plain legs at the back and two short legs with the archetypal French 'escargot' feet at the front.
This beautiful pair of chests have been painted in a base coat of blue with 'Bleu Gris' used as a top coat, the blue shows through in small areas when the subtle distressing is done creating a gorgeous time worn appearance. A finishing veil of white wax was then added on top of the chests resulting in a very French look. The white wax adheres to the small flecks of chalk within the paint adding oodles of character.

What a lovely French chest of drawers these are! There is something about the French style of furniture that is just so stunning and classic, with enough detail to add character without being too 'busy'.
This chest has some beautiful detail, I love the gentle curve of the top of this piece, it's so pretty. I also love the bottom of the chest which is beautifully curved and has a pretty carved piece in the centre which has been emphasised with the waxes. There are three good sized drawers, each with nice detail on the fronts and metal drop handles. The short cabriole feet have the archetypal French 'escargot' feet adding lovely characterful to the piece.
This wonderful piece has been hand painted in the lovely Autentico colour 'Silver' which is a very lovely silver/grey shade. The chest has then been waxed using coloured waxes adding subtle ageing and character.
Oh my these drawers are simply stunning! Beautifully made and super heavy, these vintage French cherry wood drawers have some gorgeous detail synonymous with French furniture.
The chest has two large drawers, each with ornate metal pull handles and a beautiful decorative escutcheon. There is no key hole, the escutcheon is for decoration only.
This piece has oodles of character, with a beautifully curved top, pretty carving along the base plinth and also on the sides of the piece. The chest sits on cabriole legs with gorgeous 'escargot' feet, archetypal of French furniture.
The drawers have been hand painted in the sumptuous Autentico colour 'Racing Green' which is a beautiful blue/green colour, before being waxed with coloured waxes and then finally finished with a veil of white wax over the whole piece resulting in a finish archetypal of French style. This colour looks particularly fabulous sitting against pale grey or warm white walls.
This is a stunning statement piece, perfect for any room.

This stunning Victorian chest is so lovely, and large too!
The chest has two smaller drawers over three larger ones, each one slightly increasing in size as they go down the chest. Each of the drawers has a carved wooden knob and escutcheon. The chest has a gently curved front and sits on short double bun feet.
The colour of the chest is so lovely, its a beautiful shade of blue from Autentico called 'Scandinavian Blue' and has been finished with a veil of white wax which gives such a fabulous finish as it adheres to the chalky bits within the paint. The inside of the drawers have been painted too.
This is a large chest so please check the measurements carfeully.
