Chinoiserie console: opinions?

Just saw this one on craigslist. A different direction from what I've been thinking about (and stalking), but the dimensions are perfection and the price is right.

Is it waaay too traditional? Remember the room looks like this (plus there is an asian armoire, which is where the whole desire for an asian-inspired piece comes from.)

Is the shape too fussy to paint it chartreuse, with that little scalloped lip under the drawers? Will I regret not being able to put a pair of stools underneath? So many more considerations with the final piece of furniture to come into a room.

I'm hoping to get a close-up of the hardware and wood finish tomorrow.

In the meantime, opinions are more than welcome. In fact, lay it on me!

  1. I DON'T think it's too fussy to be chartreuse (love that!) but I do hear you on the putting stools under it part. Could you cut that shelf out I wonder?


Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
