Gilded and lacquered chest from Italy circa 1734-1745 with Italian carved and gilded Chinese Chippendale style mirror circa 1940s
Don't you think a black chest with a gold mirror always looks fantastic in an entry? Or anywhere else for that matter. I think the combination is beautiful. I came across two chests and two mirrors on 1st Dibs that I'm crazy about. I put the traditional chest with the traditional mirror and did the same with the two mid-century items. Do you prefer one look more than the other? Which one?
What about mixing the two? I think the mid-century chest with the traditional mirror is my favorite. The eclectic look is just more interesting to me in this case. What do you think? And aren't these pieces gorgeous?!
