ETCHED BRONZE FERNAND DRESSE COCKTAIL TABLES

Fernand Dresse was a painter and furniture designer from Belgium.  He studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels and was student of Loius Buisseret.  His work included portraits, figures, landscapes and flowers.  The organic elements from his paintings were an inspiration for the furniture he designed later in his life.

These are brass etched cocktail tables by Fernand Dresse  featuring two inlays of Agate stone. The hand etching is beautiful and reminiscent of wood grain.  The texture flows out to the rounded edges and the shape of the table fits perfectly with the design of the top.   The combination of metal, stone, texture and petrified wood for a base is gorgeous.  This cocktail table can be a centerpiece in well designed space.

HOME ACCESSORIZING

The last phase of the design process is accessorizing the space. This phase is very important because it helps clients personalize their homes with objects they love. Here are some pictures of an Upper East side residence we designed last Spring.  The client is a fashion designer and had collected treasures from her travels all over the world. The artwork, sculptures, photography and unique accessories she had were the inspiration during the design process.  A neutral color palette was essential when designing the space in order to provide a gallery like setting for the client’s treasures.  We selected the best accessories she possesed and added a few new ones that breathed life into the space.  If you are interested, here are some great tips for accessorizing a space.
