Vintage French Shelving

More and more interior designs incorporate antique and vintage pieces for a special effect. There is a difference between these two and choosing the right element to tell a  certain story or  to transmit a certain message is not an easy task.

The only thing that speeded up is the aging process, made with special chemicals. This  is a meticulous  handmade and hand-finished item. It consists of an iron frame aged to replicate the original and natural hardwood shelves. Small variations in the framework or wood are to be expected and embraced, because in that way each item is unique and there aren’t two alike.
