"This client owned piece recently received a major overhaul. The ornate style just wasn’t working for her... not to mention failing veneer and missing decorative accents.
My challenge, create a simpler yet elegant piece of furniture.
As beautiful as ornate pieces can be, sometimes there is a bit too much going on. Ornamentation should compliment a piece, not distract from its beauty. I chose to accentuate the beautiful carved wood accents.
