The piece of furniture I’m featuring today is extremely unique.  It uses straight lines, curved lines, glass, mirror, gold and an overall feeling of late 70’s/early 80’s disco glam.

ELLO Server Buffet Gold Mirror

This server has had one owner.  It is in overall good condition.  It has some scuffing at the bottom, visible in the photo.  I can give you more specifics and close up photos if you’re interested.

The measurements of the piece are: 54″ wide x 19″ deep x 30.5″ tall.

The interior of the server has a terrific drawer for keeping your silverware.

The piece is not marked, but the time period,original purchase price, and details on the piece suggest that it most likely is Ello.  I have to give thanks to a super-helpful reader in California, Becky, for helping me determine the most-likely maker.  (Thanks Becky!!)

Let’s look at some different ways to use mirrored furniture:

I love love love faux bamboo.  Really love it.  I don’t know what it is … maybe the daydream of living near a sandy beach?  The way the lines are not straight, but offer something unexpected?  The way a faux bamboo piece looks in a bright color and lacquered?  (Sigh)  Its just fabulous.  But, for all its fabulous-ness, I have yet to incorporate much of it into my own home.  I think I’m still pursuing the perfect piece.  The only piece I’ve kept for myself is this sweet (yet practical!) magazine basket.

I love faux bamboo so much, that I think I’ll do a little faux bamboo series.  I couldn’t possibly cover all the great pieces out there in one post!  So, let’s break it down.  Today we’ll check out dressers & consoles.

I love the girly pink paired with the abstract art and blanc de chine lamps.

 

If you’ve incorporated faux bamboo into your decor, I’d love to see it!  (Especially any repainting projects).

Check out  my shop to see the bamboo-inspired pieces I’ve recently sold.  Once I get a piece, it goes quickly!  If you’re looking for a piece, check back frequently – I’m always on the hunt for more!
