Fabulous Victorian Bamboo - Brighton Pavilion

Fabulous ....and there is great history behind it all as well.

I do not know where you might live, but here in the Palm Beach County Florida,
the really collectible pieces can be quite expensive. I know, I have a charming Victorian Bamboo (or Brighton) hall-tree at the end the upstairs hall in my own home. It is holding tennis rackets and baseball caps etc.
Ofcourse it does have a bit of the CHINOISERIE look on it ....that I love,love,love !!!!
( maybe I can find a man who is a Chinoiserie man.....!!)
You can however find some new pieces now that are really quite nice and a good buy..
I believe Ethan Allen may have a bit.
Although it makes more sense to find a real Victorian Bamboo or Brighton table or hall- tree yourself. A good piece will cost the same as something from Ethan Allen.
I have had kitchen cabinets and bathroom cabinets built to mimic this look.
And they do have the molding that looks just like the bamboo trim on this little night stand.
Put a marble top on it, and vintage style faucets and you have a rich look.
I found these pieces at this store and they have a website;
The Antique Swan in Austin , Texas.
I spoke to a gentleman by the name of Eric, he was so sweet, knowledgable and helpful.
I would not think twice about doing business with them !!!
Ask for Eric and

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
