In the late '80s, the american designer Rachel Aswell, by creating a shabby but romantic style, evoking magical atmospheres of distant times, made of wooden furniture with a vintage flavour, gave birth to the Shabby-Chic Style.
The timeless charm of retro, actualized and contextualized in contemporary environments, fresh and delicate, has created a lot of enthusiasm. Manufacturers are interested creating the typical Shabby-Chic aged effect on new furniture.
The top coats that define this style, should reproduce worn-looking surfaces, where the traces of time are created on purpose. They should have a dusty look. The colors are predominantly white, ivory and dove, and pastel tones of light blue and lavender, gray, green or blue.
