Turns out in the month of July I had unwittingly run into Tara Shaw creations twice. Once at the House of Windsor show house in Los Angeles - it turns out Tara had designed a bathroom in the show house that I had featured; the second time being in Atlanta when I wandered by the Tara Shaw booth.
I had the pleasure of meeting Tara in the booth and she personally pointed me in the direction of this dresser. I was being polite at first just looking because she asked...but when I saw this little piece I thought, "Wow, this IS quite marvelous". I took a million pictures of it. It stuck with me.
(Aside note: I think I spent most of the time chatting to Tara and telling her how I was not a "blogger" but that I had a textiles collection and I had another job as an executive in Hollywood. It is silly but for some reason, after 3 years of blogging, of all things I still have a whole thing about being a called a "blogger"...I think it is because when I started, my friends would introduce to me to their friends when we were at parties and they would say "and she has a blog" and back then people would look at me like I had a third eye or with a "oh how pathetic, she sits on her computer and writes about stuff...oh how sad" look. I know times have changed but I still find myself caveatting the whole blogger thing...still avoiding the "blogger" title...need to stop and just own it. I am blogger...I think...no...let me try again...I am blogger...kind of but I do a lot of other stuff too...okay...last attempt...I am a blogger...oh...oh...okay...stop...there...I did it).
Anyhoooo...back to this piece of furniture. The Swedish pine chest has a distressed pale white finish - it was inspired by a18th century piece that was modified to use as a bedside table. It is new to the market and quite adorable. I can imagine it as a bedside table, or in a foyer, or in a little nook in a main living space. Great looking, great for storage, overall great piece of furniture I think!
