Inspiration

Geometric Firle G-Plan

by Patience & Gough

UK furniture painter Alice Patience & Oliver Gough took inspiration from the Lake District to create this geometric style G-Plan piece in Firle and Scandinavian Pink.

Geometric G-Plan by Patience & Gough painted with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan in Firle and Scandinavian Pink

Patience & Gough are a furniture painting creative duo – Alice Patience and Oliver Gough – who believe in being environmentally friendly and upcycling forgotten furniture.

For this G-Plan piece, Patience & Gough took inspiration from their surroundings in The Lake District, UK. Their design mimics the hills and the beautiful moons the region is famed for. They chose a geometric interpretation of these pastoral motifs to reflect the clean lines which are a signature of G-Plan furniture.

First the furniture was fine sanded to create a smooth surface. Once sanded, the piece was painted with Chalk Paint® in Graphite. Patience & Gough also sanded the paint between layers to ensure an incredibly smooth modern finish. Next, the triangles and circle were mapped out and painted with Scandinavian Pink, Old White, Firle and a copper paint. Use Gilding Wax in Copper for a similar look. Finally, the whole piece was waxed with Clear Chalk Paint® Wax and fitted with Hair Pin legs.
