Chinoiserie - Painted Furniture

I personally adore Chinoiserie. I once used a very small jewel case with legs that was from the Paris Flea market. It was from about 1803, it was the darkest green , almost black.
The top lifted up, it had the original salmon silk in it and a mirror. It was tattered inside which was fine. The outside had very simple/delicate lines.
Ladies used to sit on a little stool and put on their jewels for the day or an elegant affair.
It measured about 26 high , 12 wide by 18 long.
I used it next to a chair in an aqua toile dressing room. It ended up being featured in a magazine.
ah.................I wish I could time travel.
I would only go back in time.
Wish I could today....The Georgian era, I want to be there.

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
