I recently shared with a client my love for Gat Creek. It was in a passing conversation about selecting furnishings for her home where we were about to start a whole house renovation. A few days later, she sent me a text…it was simple and to the point. It read:

“I have a lot of faith in your design abilities … *gulp* do I dare say this next line to my designer?! … I’m not sure that the Gat Creek furniture you were raving about will jive with the Coastal Contemporary aesthetic we’ve been discussing.”

Hmmm…to be fair I could see how she would feel that way as a lot of what is on their website is shown in more traditional and farmhouse applications. Although, when it comes to finding versatile furniture pieces that seamlessly blend into different styles, Gat Creek effortlessly transcends design boundaries. This remarkable furniture line can adapt to various interior styles from the glamorous Art Deco, to the cozy Farmhouse, to the breezy Coastal Contemporary and right into the timeless Transitional. How? Easy…by simply changing the hardware, color/stain or wood species of the piece you can transform its aesthetic appeal and effortlessly incorporate it into any room design. Let's explore how Gat Creek’s Monaco Chest on Chest can morph into a living space in those four different interior styles.

Art Deco Elegance

Art Deco Elegance: Art Deco is all about luxurious materials, geometric shapes, and a touch of glamour.Gat Creek’s Monaco Chest on Chest can shine beautifully in an Art Deco great room when one opts for the crisp polished nickel hardware and the rich, dark Stout finish on a maple chest. The chest's clean lines and minimalist design will complement the opulent details and symmetrical patterns often found in Art Deco interiors. Pair it with a statement mirror and a bold, contrasting color scheme to create an extravagant yet sophisticated space.

Farmhouse Warmth

Farmhouse Warmth: All the rage right now is that cozy and rustic feel associated with a Modern Farmhouse. Gat Creek’s Monaco Chest on Chest transforms effortlessly into a Farmhouse-inspired great room. Choose their charming antique-burnished hardware paired with the hand glazed parchment finish for a vintage look with a nod to a modern feel. Combine it with rustic accessories, such as woven baskets and vintage textiles, to create a comforting space that exudes Farmhouse country charm.

Yes, the Monaco Chest on Chest is the perfect complement to the room. Place it to the left of the window!

Coastal Contemporary Vibes

Coastal Contemporary Vibes: For those seeking a fresh and airy feel, Gat Creek’s Monaco Chest on Chest can seamlessly fit into a Coastal Contemporary great room. Check this out!

Complete the look with nautical accents, natural textures, and plenty of natural light for a tranquil coastal retreat.

The Gat Creek Monaco Chest on Chest is the perfect transition piece for this style.
