Everything Old is New Again Shabby Chic Style

As I've discussed in earlier posts, it's important to understand styles and trends. Being aware of terms related to different styles can help you better serve your customers and increase your business.

What is Shabby Chic?

  Shabby Chic is a style of interior design.  The term applies to furniture and furnishings.  It combines new with old.  New items are often distressed to appear old and older items are chosen because they show their age.  It's a great style for those on a limited budget because pieces do not have to match and can be found at flea markets and estate sales.



Here are three pieces from Etsy that fit the Shabby Chic Style:

Nightstands from RedBarnEstates

CUSTOM NIGHTSTANDS Order Pair of Shabby Chic  Bedside Tables - Hand Painted Antique Distressed Restored Reclaimed Bedroom Furniture
