Restoration Hardware's spring catalog just came in the mail, and I couldn't help but notice the new featured line called "Deconstructed". It's furniture made to look like it's from the 1700s, with parts of the upholstery torn away to expose the old world artistry of its inner workings, complete with faux nail holes in the wood, and bits of worn fabric still clinging to random tacks. It's an interesting concept, and much more affordable than a real piece from that time period.
I have a few worn chairs of my own. Maybe I'll go ahead and rip the upholstery off the back and sides. Sounds fun, but something tells me it won't look quite as chic or Napoleanic.
