Timeless Trend: The Bamboo Chair

Trends or fads may come and go in fashion and interior design, but there are plenty of staple items that have proved themselves timeless throughout the years. One in particular would be the bamboo chair, a long time favorite of mine. What's so fabulous about this chair is how transitional it is...you'll find it used in a modern home, traditional dining room, eclectic living room, glamorous bedroom, and everything in between. It looks great painted in a bold color such as lime green or cobalt blue; it also looks beautiful in simple white or a wood stain. Any way you choose to use it, you cannot go wrong - I'm serious! I sell this fabulous chair in my online shop and it's proved to be a customer favorite! And if you haven't payed much attention to this chair, you'll definitely start noticing now. I'd love to purchase one to use as my desk chair in my office...maybe painted in vibrant yellow or bold fuchsia?! Are you loving this timeless chair too? Do you have one of your own?

Before we kick off the weekend, I just want to remind all of you who live in southern California, the Good Shepherd Charity Design House is this weekend in LA! Please click this link to view the official invitation on Facebook. I'll be in room #110 all weekend, so if you do come to the event, please stop by to say hello! Have a lovely weekend :) xoxo - Julie

  4. I love these bamboo chairs. I love that as the color scheme for a room is updated, the chairs can stay and be updated, too. There really is a timelessness to them.
    Much love,

  10. I picked up a vintage design book from the 1960 and it had a picture of a very Chinoiserie chic dining/living room with the exact style of bamboo chair, just un-painted (http://www.theaestate.com/2011/07/day-when-i-post-pictures-from-my.html)

    You would never know that room was from 50 years ago.

  13. Now that you mention it... there do seem to be bamboo chairs everywhere! I love the brightly colored ones, but white ones are so classic. They have to be one of the most versatile pieces.
