I am somewhat addicted to bold, graphic elements in decorating. This addiction reveals itself throughout my home, from the textural focal point of a headboard my husband and I created in our master bedroom to the sunburst and butterflies that adorn the wall in my daughter’s room. I love silhouettes and bold patterns that draw your attention. So the Graphic Collection from Iannone Design is the stuff of my dreams. The newest members of the collection are the Trees Dresser and Nightstand. To put it simply? I. Want. Them.
Of course the 4-figure price tags attached to each of them will put that desire on hold for a long time to come, but this is my idea of furniture perfection. These are the kind of pieces that beg to be talked about. And although my bedroom isn’t exactly a high-traffic area, they certainly would keep ME talking.
And now, I will step away to swoon…

I know how muchyou love vinyl, but I’m thinking thrift store wooden dresser, one of those removable vinyl wall stickers, and a can of paint (low VOC of course) would get you the same look. Just use the sticker as a reverse stencil, put it on before you paint then carefully pull it back off so the original wood is exposed. Maybe you’ll come across the perfect dresser when you’re looking for that perfect chair to hang under the tree… 😉

@JenO Believe it or not, vinyl was my very first thought for how to replicate this look. I could paint a design, but it wouldn’t have the same depth or texture. Wood-printed vinyl contact paper would likely be my only option. And I detest vinyl. But sometimes, I do get tempted 🙂

You might find some wall paper that would work. Also, have you ever seen the roller that makes a mark like wood? You could paint on a sheet of paper, drag the wood-like roller (or a stam?), then cut it out and glue it on. I know there is another name for the implement i\’m thinking of, but basically it makes paint look like wood. Oh my aging brain!

These are so pretty! My friend recently revamped a thrift store dresser, and while she didn’t do a graphic pattern like the ones here, I think some of the techniques she used could be applied to do a similar DIY version of this. Here is her revamp, using wood-grain contact paper: http://thecraftfiend.blogspot.com/2010/06/avocado-inspiration-and-my-finished-diy.html
