Shabby chic (pronounced: “sheek”) is a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their appearance of age and signs of wear and tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. Shabby chic pieces mix well with the early 20th century industrial pieces that are popular now.
The hallmarks of current shabby chic trends are upcycled, recycled, & repurposed items that impart a genuine individual style to your home decor.
Shabby chic items are often heavily painted through the years, with many layers showing through obviously time-worn areas. The style can be imitated by painting then distressing the finish of the furniture. Furniture pieces that are not genuine antiques are usually selected for their resemblance to older furniture styles, and may be reproduction furniture with a distressed finish.
Shabby chic fabric tends to burlap and linens, with linen being inspired by old French linens. Whites are the most desired; pure whites, ivories, ecru among them. Fabric can be stained with tea to give it the look of old fabric. Faded florals are also popular, such as old chintz, and tea rose patterns.
