Sucheta Bhide: IG Live Recap - Addison Weeks

Sucheta Bhide: IG Live Recap

Written by Nellie Turnage

Last week we caught up with the owner of The Resplendent Crow, Sucheta Bhide, about her thriving, 5-year-old furniture refinishing business. We talked about all things color, lacquer, and gloss and gained some expert design tips along the way. Re-watch the IG Live event
here or read below for a quick recap of our conversation. 

Sucheta came to the United States 23 years ago from her home
in Mumbai, India. Now she lives in University City, Missouri, with her husband Eric. Eric happens to be a master cabinet builder, making the two a perfect furniture business duo! 

With high gloss lacquer, vibrant colors, and shiny hardware, Sucheta glamorizes vintage dressers, desks, tables, and much more.

Sucheta loves to repurpose high-quality vintage furniturewhich has already withstood the test of time. By refinishing it with lacquer, she only breathes new life into her pieces.

Sucheta completes each of her transformations by adding statement hardware pieces as the finishing touch. For her, hardware is like the “jewelry to the dress,” which can tie together a whole outfit. Addison Weeks is one of her favorite ways to accessorize!

Right now, a color that she can’t stay away from in her projects is Herm
ès orange, which she recently matched with Addison Weeks lapis pulls.
