SOLD! Commissions welcome. Medium sized vintage tallboy - upcycled in Dutch "Renaissance" floral wallpaper


"Emmeline2" - back by popular demand! She's a stunning upcycled 1960s tallboy designed with the most exquisite Dutch paper, reminiscent of classic Renaissance floral oil paintings. Made by Manchester's CWS Limited in 1960 (later known as Co op) this piece is a great example of quality British furniture production, the like of which was much loved back in its heyday, and a brand to which many ordinary families aspired.

This distinctive floral style is loved by RelovedMCR partly because it reminds us of New Order's iconic album cover "Power, Corruption and Lies." Also featured in the listing to illustrate. (please note the vinyl is not for sale!)

Teamed with the highest quality charcoal black satin paint on her exterior, and a vibrant teal interior, this wondrous lady is bold, feminine and utterly modern.  She subverts the traditionally feminine.  She's floral, feisty and frankly fierce.  Open her up, and she's all about practicality, offering ample storage space.   

The decoupage technique used involves many layers of clear satin varnish applied to her decorative exterior.  That makes her one tough lady, who won't flake on you when the going gets rough :) 

This piece would make a great bedroom item, but would work equally well in a living or dining environment.  She would also make a fabulous retail cabinet for an eclectic boutique.
