The graceful curves, extraordinary grain patterns, and ornate pulls make Art Deco Waterfall style furniture timelessly desirable. Most are made of plywood with veneer which allowed for the construction of round-molded edges, hence the name waterfall. This style from the 1930s and 1940s was the most prevalent art deco furniture design during this time. Due to the thin veneers, most waterfall pieces you’ll find today almost always include some damage. Although this piece that I transformed for Leah didn’t have extensive veneer damage, it certainly came with some challenges— and I was up for the task!
Before & After
Art Deco Waterfall Dresser
Leah requested a charcoal grey, with slight distress, stained top, and decoupaged drawer sides for her waterfall dresser makeover.
