Veneer versus Lacquer?

I love lacquer, a chic Karl Springer table, can make or break a place, but being an eclectic traditionalist, it’s veneer that still makes me go crazy for Wood!!!

Give me a perfect, book-matched Queen Anne veneer any day...

I can get lost in the luxury, the supple tones and colors, the rich dark texture! 


When you touch a good veneer, you almost expect it to feel like fur, then you are pleasantly surprised by the smooth, cool texture.

How can “brown” furniture be passé when it is so luxurious looking?

Why not pair a beautifully veneered piece with a Mid Century Modern lamp, an art glass bowl and your favorite new artist hanging nearby? Go rich in your color scheme because a veneer can handle it; especially a centuries old, hand crafted piece. Check out these veneers from pieces in our last auction and don’t be afraid to think outside the box in your apartment. Go elegant-eclectic and mix a beautiful “brown” antique with something edgy and new...Time and quality will stand the test!
