Bas Bleu

Bas Bleu: French for Blue Stocking, a term used to describe a “literary woman.” I thought this term could be applied to this “smart-looking” dresser and table. Admittedly vibrant in color, these pieces are more versatile than you may think–complimented by other bold colors, or happy to play the dominant part to more subtle hues.

 

I loved this dresser from the moment I saw it. Even down to the original hardware than I had to keep (generally that’s the first thing to go). The dresser is made of sturdy dove-tail construction (trust me, I had to move it a few times) and boasts of not one, but two partitioned drawers (oh, the possibilities!). The side table/night stand has a fun shell detail on one side that really added a little somethin’ to it.
