I recently came across this piece by Wary Meyers , a husband and wife design team, on Apartment Therapy. "Le French Dresser" was created by adding scroll-saw cut wooden letters to a salvaged dresser, drawing upon inspiration from Lou Dorfsman's Gastrotypographicalassemblage. This awesome DIY project is currently featured in Wary Meyers' book, "Tossed and Found ," along with several other simple masterpieces created from items that others might disregard as trash.
My goal here was to create a space for this lovely piece of furniture to live in. I decided to stick with the black and white theme and tie everything together with fun patterns, some more typography and a few nods to France. I adore the photo collage in the shot below, especially since it evokes the alignment of compartments in a california job case - the basis for Lou Dorfsman's remarkable design.
