Remember my Post from last week with the glossy furniture? Clearly, lacquered finishes on furniture is nothing new. In fact, it dates back over 7,000 years to applications by the Chinese. Glossy walls, however, made their design debut earlier this year and I suspect with fall just around the corner, we will be seeing more of this sleek trend. The lacquered finish is a great shiny chic choice and I’d be willing to bet it’s very easy to wipe down. If this look is too bold and modern for your taste, trying layering it in a pattern with a semi gloss or matte paint.
