“Art Gallery” Home Furnishings: Painted Chests
An emerging trend in home furnishings design, according to High Point Market’s recently released Fall Fashion Trends report, is “Art Gallery.” HPMA explains it this way, “Art has always inspired, but today’s interpretations feature grand works directly on the furnishings themselves.
What we found interesting was that these new designs aren’t limited to looks worthy of the old masters, but include modern art and expressionism. The HPMA report included two chests, one classic from Modern History and one modern from Steven Shell. We were intrigued so we dug a bit further and discovered that both companies have created several other chests that fit into the “Art Gallery” category of emerging trends spotlighted in the Fall Fashion Report.
We hope you enjoy a peek into “Art Gallery” trend as seen in beautifully designed painted chests:
MODERN HISTORY is a fine furniture collection by Yorkshire House. The chests we’ve chosen to showcase here a combination of what the company calls High Design, plus historical style and artistic detail.
