When Gabby designs transitional furnishings for modern homes, we pay great attention to how a piece will function in our clients’ living spaces, because as they say, “Beauty is only skin deep.” Our designers and artisans ensure our furniture’s beauty can transcend traditional shapes, colors and designs by applying this principle to every piece. And, our vintage chests are a shining example of how beautiful form can merge with utilitarian function to yield a timeless piece of furniture.
Vintage chests designed by Gabby boast beautiful craftsmanship, as evidenced by their unique wood work and vintage carvings. These versatile pieces can be used in a variety of spaces, from living rooms and sitting areas to bedrooms and bathrooms. The following interior design ideas feature a couple of examples of how some of Gabby’s most popular chests can fit into a variety of settings.
Designs for a Large Living Room. Interior design websites and blogs often focus on how to decorate small spaces, but large spaces can be equally challenging. If you have a large living room, or an open floor plan where a living room opens into another space, we recommend creating separate zones, anchored by area rugs. Pull your furniture away from the walls to create a more intimate space. Our Ansley Parched Oak Cabinet can work well as your TV console, with plenty of room to store boxes, wires and sound equipment. The textured, vintage doors add visual interest and charm.
Highlight a seating nook. Do you have a small recessed area or wall you’d like to turn into a seating nook? We recommend placing two swivel chairs on either side of our beautiful Chelsea Demilune. Guests will be smitten with this half-moon shaped cabinet. It’s proportioned perfectly as a smaller accent piece that boasts beautiful striated wood decor on the doors.
Transition your decor. Does your interior design include both traditional and modern elements? Vintage chests can be great transitional pieces. The Corbin Woven Storage Cabinet reflects a timeless aesthetic. Its vintage profile echoes past eras, while its woven seagrass finish brings it into the current century.
Make your vintage chest the star. Sometimes a piece of furniture deserves all the attention, and we feel that this is the case with the Pandora Chest. Aptly named, each drawer features an unexpected wood-carved geometric accent on its face.
