Laquered furniture

I love the look of lacquer furniture that is very high gloss.  It can add a contemporary feel to a traditional room, or slip nicely into a modern setting.  Lacquer brings chic and style to any room.  It tends to be expensive.  We’ve tried to find affordable pieces that can be used as accents in an otherwise traditional setting.

Lacquer is a clear or colored wood finish.  It dries into a hard, protective and durable surface similar to varnish, shellac and polyurethane.  Each of those products is different, however, and should not be used interchangeably.  Lacquer can produce a matte finish or the high gloss finish we are featuring in this article.
