Here you have a one we are the most proud of right now.

Like most of ours, this piece as well was slightly distressed along leading edges in areas of natural wear for authentic aged look.

The exterior is hand varnish to protect Annie Sloan’s paints and to enhance that old shabby chic appearance whereas. It has four big drawers and storage compartments with a small drawer inside, together with variety of dividers. This is hidden behind drop down door / writing desk.

This shabby chic bureau is a very stylish and elegant piece of furniture for any home.

Printing is the part we are the most proud of. It is a French advert printed on external side of desktop. It was made using screen printing method, which finally we managed to implement with our works. You can see the effect on closeups in photographs included.

    Hello Sir,
    I’ve got a pedestal desk that I want to sell. It needs a little cosmetic attention, but is still functional. Dimensions are: 120cm wide, 79cm high, 60cm deep, It has a leather top. I might be able to send you a picture of it if you want. I’m asking £100.00 for it. If you are interested, do contact me. I can only sell it to you if you collect it yourself.

    Thank you.
