Love A Good Lacquer

LaquerThe WSJ ran an article about the appeal of high-gloss and one skeptic's new view on the paint's possibilities. I'm particularly fond of the high-gloss look, especially in small spaces. When I think of high-gloss done well, my mind goes to the jet black glossy walls of The Black Pearl, a Newport fixture that never grows old (mudslides & chowder, anyone?).  Above, the high-gloss effect courtesy of William Waldron.
