Painted Pine Furniture the Revival

Gorgeous Dining Set from Gorgeous Touch in Coventry

Furniture is very much a fashion industry and in recent times we have seen the popularity of Solid Oak furniture rise and solid pine fall but that is all about to change with the revival of reclaimed painted pine.
Pine is a soft wood and is easy to work with, as a material it is also cheaper to purchase than Oak wood. In the 1990’s Pine was a popular material for furniture and there were numerous local carpenters working with Pine but as the price of imported Oak products came down the fashion tilted towards Oak.
With the introduction of reclaimed painted pine we are starting to see an increase in popularity of Pine furniture especially if you are looking for something different.

The Look without The Cost

In the current economic climate we have more customers that want to achieve an interior designer look without the interior designer price. Finding bold statement pieces of furniture or accessories normally comes with a huge price tag.

As bold statement pieces of furniture goes you cannot find better than Coach House, a company that is sum ominous with interior designers throughout the UK. We have often bumped into and met some of the more well known TV personality interior designers when we visit their show room. Coach House bring designer pieces that really make a bold statement, often made by hand and carved to perfection using the best materials available they really do stand out. We currently sell a number of Coach House lines at http://www.gorgeoustouch.co.uk/coach-house-241-c.asp as you can see the quality and design bring along a high sale price but we have been able to source a supplier that is able to achieve a designer look without faltering on quality and brings along a much more money savvy price tag.

An example is the classic design French Armoire wardrobe, styled on furniture from the late 1700’s during the reign of Louis XIV where style was characterised by free curves and decorative work was influenced from Chinese art.
A full mirrored Armoire from Coach House will cost £1249 French Armoire
Where as our interpretation piece styled from the same era is only £699 French Armoire

A hand carved bed from the Coach House collection as a standard double (4.6ft) sells at £849 French Bed

The interpretation piece is only £550 French Bed

If only choosing these 2 pieces you would have saved £849 whilst still obtaining the look, style and bold statement associated with these Louis XIV inspired bedroom pieces. For more from both suppliers please check out http://www.gorgeoustouch.co.uk/bedroom-furniture-122-c.asp
