Emilia Marita. Chairs. December 10th, 2017.
Many tend to associate shabby chic decorating with femininity yet I disagree. To me shabby chic is a decorating style that expresses pride in history by using furniture, sofas, and pieces of art from earlier periods, the vintage pieces ideally look a little worn, to create a beautifully aged design scheme.
The LC3 Grand Modele Armchair is a stylish choice for any Living Room. Designed in 1928 by Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand, the LC3 is a bold, modern chair with a linear, chrome-plated tubular steel frame and boxy cushions. Le Corbusier was a pioneer in the Modernist architecture movement of the 1920´s and 1930´s. The fundamental principles of this style were the expression of volume over mass, balance over symmetry, and the rejection of applied ornament. The LC3 is a beautiful expression of these Modernist elements, combining soft, inviting seating with strong linear elements.
The pride of creating shabby chic furniture belongs to everyone, even if you don´t have any old or antique furniture in your home. From thrift shops and garage sales look for pieces of furniture that have some antique lines, or furniture with a lot of curves. There is no need to spend on expensive beds, large closets, or huge sofas, nothing has to be purchased. Many decorators do shabby chic painting using old suitcases, stools, pieces of broken glasses, broken vases and lamps, with a little bit of reason and a sense of freedom home decorators can find pride in shabby chic decor.
If you take pride in preserving old furniture you´ll be amazed at the opportunities this style of decorating offers. Restore a worn deck chair for living room furniture, fix up old wood using a transparent blue stain paint. Bring in a garden arbor to make your scheme distinctive, use garden statues such as angels, or combine pieces from your grandmother´s home with pieces you have chosen. If you take pride in preserving old furniture these ideas will make you a proud decorator
