Gothic Grunge - the furniture your mother warned you about.


~ Grunge: the dark side of bohemian life.



When it comes to street fashion of home decor ~ Love Anna James.

For the true urban lifestyle, you can't forgo ~ Grunge: the dark side of bohemian life. From London street fashion to Romeo + Juliet, Anna James receives her inspiration from the graffiti found on the archway entrance of Juliet's home in Verona, Italy. Working out of a studio in South East London, she transforms 20th century antiques into one-of-a-kind, hand-painted ~ treasures.

Like the Verona Boudoir Chest, each piece is fully restored and etched with random declarations of love + other unrequited scribblings from around the world. Like her art, Anna remains a mystery, but her urban inspired graffiti paints a picture of a true avant-garde furniture + decor designer. Other must sees from ~ Love Anna James: granny takes a trip, love lights and planet queen. For purchases and commissions, contact Anna at  www.loveannajames.com.

  15. Fantastic! I love the graffiti wardrobe. I have always wanted to have a item of furniture when everyone who comes round can draw, write, do whatever they want to...
    I adore black walls, although I don't think I could handle all the 4 walls, I would feel like I was living in a cave and that would lose it's value after a little while.
