Low Bling Defined

Gilded Bamboo Tiered Tray Table at Glam Vintage & Moderne

Gilding bamboo is not like gilding the lily.  While fresh green bamboo is pretty,  its dried honey colour reminds me of   1960’s entertainment units.

Richard just brought in these 1940’s styled chinoiserie metal reproductions with felt backed mirrored surfaces.

These reflective tables recognize the beauty of bamboo’s organic structure when elevated by aged gold and silver foil applications.

At Glam Vintage & Moderne, when a piece has a rich lustre and shine without over the top bejewelled sparkle we call it “low bling”.
