Old and grand with years of life (possibly up to 100 years) and a patina to prove it. It took much effort to NOT sand away all its character. Perfectly practical, this solid wood chest of drawers is a statement piece but not too imposing, despite its size. It is very tactile and has been refreshed and revived using Annie Sloan Old Ochre chalk paint and finished in clear and dark waxes for protection and added warmth. Offering plentiful storage, it is as practical as it is stylish.
