Colour and Wood Blocked Dressing Table with Mid-century Flare


Sometimes its hard to tell if a room would look better with a white piece of furniture or a piece made with wood. Then there is always the option of going bold instead and introducing a colour. Simone Cappellanti has created a stunning dressing table that solves the problem by simply using all 3 choices. The top of the desk and the left hand side are detailed in a solid white and easy to clean finish. The right side is veneered with an exotic wood and the underside allows a hint of dusty rose to peek forth.


The optional addition of a Quadrilateral Mirror adds to the “everything goes” charm of the table. Keeping the frame of the mirror in the same finish as the top stops this strange but awesome addition from detracting from the effect of the table itself. The only choice left to make is the seating and there are two excellent options that will keep the overall asymmetrical balance to the table. The first is a clear acrylic or Lucite chair, and the second is a plastic or upholstered chair in a contrasting bold colour choice such as Cobalt Blue or Emerald Green. The clear acrylic would look awesome in a contemporary setting and a bold colour choice would tie in with a more retro d├ęcor.
