On Her Chest

This amazing armoire is the product of British artist and furniture designer Anna James. Entitled Verona, the piece was inspired by Anna’s visits to Juliet’s (of star-crossed lover fame) house in Italy, and replicates the graffiti covering the walls at the archway entrance – all declarations of love by visiting lovers of all ages, from all over the world.

Anna transposed the original etchings by taking a series of digital images, which she then applied to her carefully prepared authentic period pieces. Her LoveAnnaJames site explains:

“Because messages are constantly being added to the walls, Anna’s design for her Verona furniture is unique to a particular moment in time, and gives each piece its own individual artwork and identity.”

How thoroughly romantic… the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day?
