Decorating With Antique Bamboo Furniture

Architect Gil Schafer 500x608 Decorating With Antique Bamboo FurnitureArchitect Gil Schafer

We are so used to seeing the vintage bamboo Hollywood Regency furniture, that we forget about the beautiful antique Victorian bamboo furniture. In fact, antique bamboo furniture is of better quality than the furniture of the 50's and 60's. Dressers were made of solid wood, not melamine, and the inside of the drawers were also hand made of solid wood. Today the inside of furniture is often made of lower quality wood or thick cardboard, so why not go with antique furniture?

I ran across this stunning red dresser decorated in bamboo and painted a terrific red as you see below. The bamboo stocks were often famously painted gold, or highlighted, but as you can see how wonderful a simple shade of paint does for the architectural elements of the bamboo. Often times antique bamboo is seen photographed in magazines in their natural state, and left unpainted.  The raw bamboo can look quite attractive in English interiors, and all American interiors.  Consider pairing your bamboo furniture with patterns, and rustic interiors.  Bamboo furniture can be so versatile, making it a popular choice for interiors today.
