Faux Vintage Find

Vintage End Table at Glam Vintage & Moderne

Braided Granite & Bronze Metal End Table at Glam Vintage & Moderne

The beauty of this end table is not only in the details, it’s in the dimensions.  This table can be placed next to a couch for a nice compact end whose depth mirrors the sofa’s.  It’s height is sheer perfection next to high armed pieces.  As a  console, its slim lines and smaller width would be exquisite in a hall with a gold accented mirror above it.

Vintage End Table

The details are stunning.   A braided trim of bronze metal goes all the way around it and is finished on 4 corners with gilded tassels. Your friends will marvel at your ability to ferret out such a wonderful handcrafted “vintage” find.  Resist temptation to buy one of these spanking new tables for every room.

The Fairest Mirror of them All

A front hall mirror should make a statement.  It’s more about bringing sparkle to your decor than reflective clarity.  After all we’re not trying to apply liquid eyeliner in front of it…OK lipstick maybe.

This Baroque styled embellished mirror will add impact upon entry to your interior (that is  after you’ve already wowed them with your exterior decor).

Baroque Mirror Rosettes

***

Its antiqued panels are held together with gilded rosettes…the old fashioned way. Antiquing gives the mirror a haze which reflects a kinder image not unlike the use of gauze on cameras.

Guests might take a quick look in it to see that their hat, tie, or hair is where it should be and be pleased with absolutely everything they see.

Light my Wire

Wire Lamp at Glam Vintage & Moderne

This is not a reading lamp as the shade is too dark.  This is a fabulous accent lamp meant to highlight itself.  It “lights its wire” base and the table it’s sitting on.The taupe barrel shade works perfectly with the gun-metal base of woven wire spun in a clean cylinder.   The light reflects the sparkle of the antiqued mirror vintage side table below it and contrasts nicely with the subtle organic coral beside it.

Living in a loft space that is only 1200 sq feet is so frustrating when all you want to do is decorate more rooms and buy more stuff.  Like this wire lamp and the “to die for” colourful large canvases on tomorrow’s blog.

Tables “Take Two”

Reworked Oak Coffee Table and Round Walnut Side Table

Why didn’t I think of that?  I was there when Richard purchased this perfectly scaled vintage oak coffee table.  He said “I’m going to paint it”.  My mind envisions the piece painted in putty colour then all in black and I am underwhelmed.  Dang it if Richard doesn’t think of sending it out to have the inset top lacquered in a soft black and voila!

Similarly, Richard reworked a rather simple round walnut side table and treated it to a mirrored top which he antiqued himself.  Once again …another splendid rejuvenation (that wasn’t my idea).
