Palladio Inspired

Oh, I simply adore this Cosmopolitan Commode from Donghia, inspired by the celebrated Rennaisance architect Andrea Palladio. Andrea Palladio is widely considered the most influential person in the history of Western architecture. He always carefully designed in reference to the setting... and some of his most famous villas survive in the Veneto region of Italy, greatly inspiring this collection of furniture. His signature Palladian style especially flourishes in this console with the geometric cutouts and symmetrical recessed carvings across the facade. Sleek and elegant, this is truly a stylish and historical piece of furniture. J'aime beaucoup...
