Distressing, more commonly termed Shabby chic is a very popular form of interior design where furniture or furnishings are chosen for their tasteful signs of wear and tear or new items are distressed  subtly to give the appearance of an antique. The distressed look carries associations of  a soft, minimalistic, and feminine feel , often seen in France, it is the faded opulence and relaxed charm that makes this style so desirable .
