Fabulous and Baroque

I’m the first to admit that traditional baroque furniture is not typically found in my personal design vocabulary. While paging through fab.com, I discovered these handcrafted reproduction furniture pieces by Austin Texas based ‘Fabulous and Baroque‘. With a strong classic foundation, they are excellent examples of modern design. Interpreted with a heavy, expressive, chunky scale, an unconventional color and finish selection, and luxurious fabrics, I believe this furniture line has successfully pulled off a tough design assignment. I find this collection to be in the spirit of the masters of the genre- Stylistic influence of Marcel Wanders, and similarly the Bourgie table lamp Ferruccio Laviani by Kartel. The designers boast they have created pieces built to last a lifetime, with careful attention to detail and craftsmanship.

The headboard above is a modern and luxurious.”With its intricate and elaborate carvings, this luxurious mahogany, hand-carved Royal Fortune French black lacquer platform bed is the ultimate piece of furniture to turn any bedroom from bland to grand! We’ve added the ultimate in decadence by upholstering the headboard in a luxurious black silk and finished the tufting made with Swarovski ELEMENTS crystals. Details include flowers, leaves and scrolls”.
