Art Deco 1930s Chest of Drawers, Painted, Cream and Gold
This is a fabulous, Art Deco, 1930s Chest of Drawers with lovely details. The fluted moulding on the front and the swirled flourish on the feet make this a really striking piece. Not only is it good to look at, it also offers great storage, with 4 good sized drawers.
When we found this it was looking rather tired, with modern handles that really detracted from the beautiful 1930s style and design . The first thing we did was to source handles much more in keeping with its age and we think these work perfectly.
We chose to paint this in a gorgeous soft cream - the perfect neutral! This beautiful colour is a custom blend of 2 Fusion Mineral Paint colours; Limestone and Champlain. The fluted moulding and inner circle detail on the feet have been highlighted with Posh Chalk Pigments in Lemon Gold. We have added layers of a matt varnish to give added protection. The insides of the drawers have been cleaned and refreshed with Orange Oil and the sides of the drawers have been waxed to ensure they run well.

This is a beautiful piece of furniture that would fit perfectly into a vintage home, but would work equally well in a more contemporary setting. It truly is a striking piece of 1930s history and definitely a one-of-a-kind!
We are always delighted to be able to rescue and refinish beautiful, good quality, vintage, furniture. We lavish them with care and attention, clean them thoroughly and breathe new life into them, but we can't make them look like new - and we don't want to! These are character items and their imperfections are an integral part of their story. As a vintage piece from the 1930s it does show signs of use and age, but these do not detract from its style and practicality.
There are some dinks and areas of wear to the wood, as you would expect from a chest of drawers that is over 80 years old, but there is plenty of life left in this gorgeous piece. There is some gapping to the top of the drawers, but they all work well. Please note that you can see the grain of the wood beneath the paint.
If you are looking for an off the shelf, mass produced, item with a perfect factory finish, this isn't the piece for you, but if you want a special and unique one-off, that you definitely won't find anywhere else - you've found your perfect match! If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
