Every once in a while an online store will ask me to write a blog post highlighting some of their products. I have always said no because I haven’t been interested in their product or simply didn’t have much to say about something like bed linens. However, after Chairish wrote me I took a look at their website and fell in love. I am hoping to start blogging more, and their selection of vintage furniture captured my attention and got my brain’s blogging wheels moving.
While surfing their selection of vintage armoires I fell flat in love with this one:
It combines two of my favorite things: faux bamboo and Robert Allan fabric. Pieces like this were originally used in more traditional design but faux bamboo has become a staple in many more modern rooms over the last several years. If my husband and I weren’t heading into a kitchen reno and if I hadn’t just, ahem, crumpled the front of our car into the side of our garage…this baby would be on its way to my house.
I’ve dreamed up a craft room/ sewing room based on this bamboo beauty. The small drawers would be perfect for holding sewing notions and paint brushes and there is plenty of space to place baskets holding fabrics and craft supplies. That lower shelf might even fit a sewing machine! Some other key aspects of this room: clothes pegs to display usable scraps of fabric artfully on the wall, a beautifully rusty vintage toolbox to keep scissors and thread spools close at hand, and a red Chinese Chippendale chair (because I can never get enough faux bamboo).
