UPDATE: Vintage Faux Bamboo Dresser is SOLD
Whatever you call it – vintage, used, antique – furniture that’s been ‘pre-loved’ is usually a good buy. I love the look of vintage furniture and the character it brings to my home and the homes of my clients, but beyond the style-factor, vintage furniture is tremendous value for your money. Here’s a good example…
Vintage bamboo furniture is hot, hot hot!
Whether it be a headboard (like the black one above), a coffee table or chest of drawers, this is a beautiful and timeless style. Popularized recently by the rebirth of Hollywood Regency style and designers like Kelly Wearstler, Jonathan Adler and Meg Braff, faux bamboo is on every designer’s wish list. This new bamboo piece from Jonathan Adler costs $595 USD, which is more like $715 by the time it comes to Canadian stores. For one faux bamboo chair.
Now here’s a perfect example of vintage value. A classic example of Hollywood Regency faux bamboo, it’s a storage-filled chest of drawers with on-trend brass hardware. It’s here now at Penney & Company (just got it this weekend) and it costs $425.
Here’s what else you could buy if you want a white faux bamboo chest of drawers (Williams Sonoma Home $4313)…
And here’s what else you can get for under $500 if you’re looking to buy a new dresser…The Brick’s Highboy for $499.97!
So you see, sometimes a quality vintage piece with loads of style is the same price or less than something from one of the big box retailers or Ikea! Yet they don’t cost nearly as much as the high end new pieces that are knocking off the original vintage piece!
Besides the style factor (and you know me, that’s pretty important) vintage pieces have great value for your money. Plus they look so darn good.
