We’re incredibly honoured to supply this RV Astley collection, which boasts a distinctive character throughout the range, thanks to a fusion of contemporary design and period European styling. Our mirrored furniture is blessed with a much-loved 1930s style, reflecting the kind of unique look you would have found in a Hollywood star’s dressing room. This collection also includes gorgeous furniture wrapped in faux shagreen, such as side tables, dressing tables and drawer chests for a unique, lavish appearance. Crafted with impeccable attention to detail, our mirrored furniture is also highly practical too, spreading the light around the room to create the illusion of a bigger space. The Art Deco glamour in this collection is clear to see and these are no ordinary pieces of furniture by any means, they’re beautifully designed to make a great statement, complementing bold colours and adding lots of light to your room. Whether you’re looking to add undeniable vintage charm to your bedroom, living room, library or reception room, we have everything you could possibly need to reignite your home with the splendour of the Regency era.
What is Shagreen?
Those living in the Regency would have been all too familiar with the material shagreen. To the French, it was ‘chagrin’ and the term essentially referred to an opulent natural material for wrapping upholstery and furniture, but not just any material, it was leather made from the skin of sharks or stingrays! We're now seeing a surge in this appearance once more and thanks to technological advancements and exquisite craftsmanship, we’re able to supply the faux shagreen furniture you see below. The classic stonewashed appearance with incredibly detailed spotting is still clear to see, whilst the textured print finish is placed behind glass for added splendour.
