trompe l' oeil furniture

Decorated furniture

Decorated furniture…

…has been with us for centuries. Painted, carved, marquetry and lots more if you look around. Because of my trompe l’œil discipline I naturally gravitated to that side of the decoration. I have painted lots of furniture to commission over the years, and, in many ways, it’s my favourite type of trompe l’œil.

On the furniture page you will see some of the examples of decorated furniture that I managed to photograph. This is a toilet seat with items painted on the lid. They are inexpensive and fun. Naturally the bigger the piece of furniture and the more details added the more it will cost. With most painting and especially with trompe l’œil the money is in the details.
