Chrome and Copper Plating Furniture

By April 27, 2010 finishes / options, furniture

I had a customer ask about chroming a desk today. Wow, a chrome desk? Sounds interesting, and shiny, and I like shiny things! So I looked into pricing which was $250-$350 for a media console or desk. And they can do brushed chrome or nickel and polished chrome, nickel or COPPER! So my mind has been running, what would look good chrome or copper?! One thought is a making a media console with a polished copper frame, and chrome lower cabinet/doors and casters. Then put a butcher block top on it to make it a rolling island. Or maybe a chrome Brooklyn coffee table? A copper desk with chrome wheels? Hmm, the possiblities are endless.

This would change the style of these pieces a bit, probably more mid-century modern.
