I had a thought last night while I was taking the train home from work flipping through the Wisteria catalog that had just come. I was doing my usual rip out the pages to save things I like, and I found myself digging this Moorish Chest (though its slightly out of my normal comfort zone). Handmade, each one is unique, adorned with hand-cut, inlaid camel bone...and for a whopping $2,999.00...no wonder I like it - I have good taste:)
Now, here's the potentially crazy part...what if you/I took a piece of black furniture (something with similar lines) and hand-painted a detailed pattern on it in white/ivory or even metallic champagne paint? (And yes, I realize this would take for...ev....er.) Do you think we could achieve the same look (without the obvious ooh-la-la of the beautiful reflective camel bone once you are up close)? Could this be cool? Or would it look cheap? Has someone actually done this already and pulled it off?
