A peak inside the home of Shabby Chic’s Rachel Ashwell


In the Aug/Sep 2010 issue of Lonny Mag they gave us a sneak peak of Ashwell’s London flat. The flat came furnished and she kept all the furniture, just converting it to her needs as opposed to buying new furniture.

I think that coffee table is an old door!

I want that rug…

So…I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I did not know until I read the article that Shabby Chic filed for bankruptcy in 2009. Since then, Rachel has come back with products that address the new style of cleaner lines and less “fluff,” as opposed to the chintz and flowy slipcovers she’s famous for. What do you think? Do you think Rachel can adapt to the changing times with her new line? Were you sad to see Shabby Chic go or were you over it??
