Refinement in Furniture on Etsy

Furniture is such a huge part of home decoration. I wanted to highlight some of the beautiful, quality, handcrafted furniture designs being offered by the Interior Design Team on Etsy.

I fell in love with this Keeping Chest from Artistic Lifestyling while searching for eco-friendly home decor last week. This beautifully constructed contemporary chest is handcrafted using traditional joinery techniques and finished with eco-friendly stain (their other chests are available in milk paint colors) and protected with multiple layers of linseed oil and beeswax.

This narrow cupboard from Buck Creek Furnishings will fit perfectly in a small nook and hide your towels, cds, or other odds and ends. This cupboard is finished in fern green and then rubbed for an aged look, but the artisans at Buck Creek will finish it in any color you like!

Although I've been a fan of modmomfurniture for some time now, I spotted this low shelf/toy box in a treasury recently and fell in love with the subtle appeal of the veneer applique design rising up across the front of a pleasing birch woodgrain. The lid to the "toy box" also has a slow-closing lid support - further evidence of its refinement!

This is the Brentwood Cupboard from Shaka Studios. This gorgeous cupboard/shelf is heirloom quality, handcrafted from ponderosa pine and comes in a variety of finishes and colors.

This contemporary split-top table from Brookside Creations caught my eye and I'll tell you why. Aside from its unique form, I've had a real thing lately for the mixture of dark and light wood stains together in the same piece. This table brings it all together for me!

This beautiful coffee table from Dryad Studios, like all of their furniture, is a work of art that cannot be appreciated without reading about the finishing process. So click the link and be impressed!

I love the simple, elegant design of this low bench from Tangible Design and the angle at which the legs are joined! It is shown here as a coffee table, stunning in its simplicity.
