Hello Handsome

by Liza Laserow

This Swedish Rococo chest of drawers is for me a role model within furniture. The cognacy color of the wood, the original gilt bronze hardware and the construction… Look at the inlays on the top and on the drawers and how the perfect curves are built. Everything is so divine and beautifully made.  The chest was made during the Rococo period and most likely a “master-piece”. A master piece was the test a furniture maker did to get his license to make furniture and to be called a carpenter.
