Exploring Antique Furniture and Home Decorating Ideas
Rococo Chest of Drawers
This elegant Rococo chest of drawers will complement any decor and exemplify the outstanding decorative appeal of genuine French furniture. The ancient French chest of drawers, which comes from the 1930s and is far too beautiful to be stashed away in a bedroom, will look fantastic in a living room or corridor. It is composed of burled mahogany wood and has a pink marble top. The visual appeal of the two drawers is enhanced by beautiful banding. The chest of drawers' genuine show-stoppers, though, are the brass decorations that emphasize the wood. The beautiful lady brass design is a visual delight.

Rococo Design: Ornate and Extravagant
Ornate brass accents adorn the tops of the curved cabriole legs at the front of the chest. The little figures on the drawer handles, as well as the brass head on the chest apron, show excellent details. With a sensuous and luxurious appeal that would improve any design, this is the epitome of Rococo extravagance. The traditional Rococo French chest of drawers offers both efficient storage and beautiful good aesthetics, making it an excellent choice for any traditional French design scheme.
Curves, curves, curves!
On walls, ceilings, and moldings, the Rococo style included elaborate interlacings of curves and countercurves based on the fundamental shapes of the "C" and "S," as well as shell patterns and other natural shapes. Asymmetrical design was the rule. Light pastels, ivory white, and gold were the primary hues, and Rococo decorators commonly used mirrors to emphasize the feeling of open space. It is distinguished by its lightness, grace, and enthusiastic use of curved natural shapes in decorating. Rococo is derived from the French word rocaille, which refers to shell-covered rockwork used to decorate artificial grottoes. To see more furniture with good curves, check out our post here!
