Old Pickled Look vs. New Blonde Finish Is it the Same?
As I walked the halls of High Point this year, I kept seeing furniture with a pickled finish. It is interesting how trends can be reinvented every few years. The old pickled look has been given a new name, and is now known as a blonde finish.
Pickled wood furniture was popular in the 1950’s and many of the pieces are now collectibles. It is no wonder that furniture lines are bringing in this interesting finish that gives furniture a light color option with a rich depth to it. You can play this finish up and create an elegant focal point, or play it down for great decorative charm.
I especially like linen headboards and they are the rage right now. I can pair the blond finish with a great fabric for an old world feel that also feels very modern and relevant. Stanley Furniture introduced a new farm bed with great finish options. The old world distressing gives it a timeless look and the finish options give it character. I love the heavy rubbed through white finish, that offers close to the wood matte finish with a cream colored accent glaze.
Hickory White offers discerning furniture with some great new finish options. I love that moment in a project, where you decide which piece will become the statement in the room and which design elements will complement it. The more finish options I have to work with the more creative I can get. You can call it blonde or pickled, I can make it look fabulous in your home!
