Topic tags/keywords: zuki style

DW found this pic on-line and she said that she likes this style of furniture. What style is it?

I can pick out G&G . . . but beyond that its a guess at best.

I can’t nail it, but it looks similar to Cobble Island furniture style.
Your picture, however lacks the elaborate corner decorations that the real Cobble Island has.
The feet are vaguely similar, but Cobble Island has sawn feet, not bun feet.

That’s the best I could do.

Not every piece of furniture fits into a special category. I think this style would be generically referred to as “traditional”(which means it borrows from a number of styles, but is not “modern”.)

I’m thinking if there was a prize to give Charlie would be the closest with Don coming in a close second.

I do like the sawn feet more . . . tks Don for the direction.

Guy and Dave are also close . . . the pic came from Costco\Price Club.
