This Ginkgo Biloba inspired bureau was build around contrasts: matt & shine, dark & bright, classic & modern.
I've chosen black and dark shades of greys as a canvas for sparkling copper accents. I used copper leafs and some metallic paint to achieve the look.
I love leaving the best parts of the original woodwork so i left old intarsia around the edges and i refreshed the top of the piece by applying general finishes maple woodstain.
