The Exotic Commode

Being a bit of a romantic, I have always loved pieces with Oriental influence for the sense of exotic mystery they evoke, especially when executed in high Louis XV and XVI styles. On a recent visit to the fabulous George N Antiques gallery I was especially taken with an 18th cent Louis XV Japanned commode. This striking and versatile piece really is a work of art in its own right, and would resonate beautifully against a luxe/minimalist backdrop. I can see this commode being equally suited for a high style traditional interior to add an element of chic sophistication.

Ecstatic over this remarkable find, I am wearing a Gucci aubergine velvet jacket, Tom Ford pocket square in lavender silk Glenn plaid, Tom Ford shirt in brown cotton with contrast white collar, Lavender silk tie by Charvet, cuff links are vintage moonstone from Ralph Lauren, brown tweed motorcycle style pants by Gucci, python belt by Gucci and Yves Saint Lauren aubergine suede “Eton” boots.
