A bit of a follow up post from the last one I wrote... except, instead of writing about creating your own Shabby Chic furniture I'm gonna tell you where to buy brand new furniture with an old fashioned style. As a Swede, it's quite obvious that I have a love for IKEA, but... (yes, there is a but) even though basic furniture can be great and easy to match with, it can get a bit plain and boring looking in the end.
I recently discovered the online furniture store Hunters at Home who specialises in Shabby Chic furniture as well as Belgravia furniture. Belgravia furniture is quite similar to the Shabby Chic style, but they're a bit cleaner and more posh. Belgravia furniture also have more swirly patterns in them. I read somewhere that Belgravia furniture originally came from the posh parts of old London, which I'm sure is right. I can just imagine an old wealthy Victorian family living in a London apartment full of fancy Belgravia white furniture.
Just look at these gorgeous pieces of Belgravia furniture in the collage I created below. I really love this classic vintage feel, and the great thing about this style is that even though it's quite a simple style, just like the Shabby Chic style, it looks super elegant with the swirly patterns carved out of the wood. I actually have a couple of pieces very similar to some of these in my guest bedroom - an antique bureau and a painted white bookcase. If I could, I would fill the whole room with Belgravia bedroom furniture from Hunters at Home, but unfortunately it's quite a small room, so for now the two pieces I have are going to have to be enough.
The bookcase I have is actually quite similar to the one here below, except it hasn't got any swirls. I would really love to swap the one I've got for this one instead - it's such a beautiful piece of furniture. For you who are on the lookout for some new furniture for your home I'd really recommend you to go and have a look at Hunters at Home. Their prices are actually really reasonable - something I was quite surprised about since they offer a range of speciality furniture.
