Today is Part Deux of the Faux Bamboo series.  I’m using a little French in honor of Le Tour de France… its a big thing in our house.  The Tour.  Not French.


I wish that could be me right now!


I’d like to first share with you a little beauty of a table I picked up.

Faux Bamboo Baker Style Table

I adore this table!  It is reminiscent of a Baker table, but this one doesn’t have a brass edge to the glass.  There is a small chip in the glass top, and you can see one of the legs under the glass (where the glass sits… right there in front) is worn, some of the finish is lacking.  Oh – and that’s just sidewalk chalk on my porch floor that you see back there!  Not green paint on the glass!

Here are some other Baker style tables:

The natural wood is such a perfect contrast against all of the other white wood in the room.

And, more faux bamboo tables:

Metal faux bamboo trio of tables – Very interesting to look at, yet still keeps a space open.

Adorable set!

Cute side table.  Nice mirrored top.  I have a similar table from Ballard, but its not faux bamboo… wish I’d seen this one first!

A little gold glam bamboo never hurt anyone!

So what do you think of the tables?  Natural wood or painted?  Would you paint the one from my shop or leave it au naturel?  (I just wanted to use French one more time.)








As promised, today’s Featured Find is a set of two Pace Collection side tables.  They are made of three pieces of thick plate glass held together by brass colored brackets.  They are actually very sturdy pieces of furniture.  Each table measures 16″ long, 17″ wide, and 17″ tall.

There are a few small condition issues with these – contact me for specifics if you’re interested in purchasing.  I’ve priced them appropriately considering these issues.

These tables would be great as side tables, or put together as a small coffee table in front of a loveseat.  I tried that in front of my couch, but my couch was too big and it dwarfed the tables.  I really wish I had another place for these, but I don’t!  I know someone out there will love them, though!  Check out the SHOP for pricing details.



… wish it were Sunday…  ’cause that’s my fun day… my I-don’t-have-to-run day… (everybody now!) Its just another manic Monday!  {Oh Bangles, where are you now?}

Yes, yes, Monday again.  But it means that I have some great finds to share with you this week!

Pace Collection Furniture was a fine furniture company in business from the early 1970’s until 2001 (according to my trusty(?) Wikipedia research).  Much of the vintage Pace furniture that we see being used now in design is of the glass and chrome or brass variety.  The pieces have a simplicity to them which lends itself to a clean-lined glamour.  Just as how the lucite coffee table is popular right now for opening up a room, a Pace table will have a similar effect.

To start off the week, I’d like to share with you a Pace Collection round dining table with two brass/glass bases.

Pace Round Glass Table 2 Bases


Now, after researching this a bit, I believe that the round tables usually use one base.  Most photos I’ve seen show the two bases being used with a rectangular top.  If you’re interested in purchasing this set, I will give you the option of purchasing just one base with the round top, or the two bases with the round top.  There are so many different configurations you can do with the bases.

And don’t you love the painting in the background by Kerry Steele?

Here’s a pic of the table top and one base:

Pace Round Table 1 Base

I was so excited to find this piece, and sites like 1stdibs and similar have them for sale for a lot more than what I will offer them at.  Check out this link if you want to take a peek and see the table in the rectangle version: Pace on 1stdibs.

I think this table is so fun!  My dining room looks three times bigger with this table rather than my wood pedestal table I normally use.  Some really great chairs would really set off the table.

Here are some other Pace tables out there:

Rectangular table with trapezoid base (I personally think the chairs could be a lot more exciting, don’t you?).

Great Pace coffee table – love the thick brass legs.

from Architectural Digest

Elton John’s lucite & chrome Pace table – if Elton John has a Pace table, then it MUST be fabulous!

The bases and glass are in terrific condition.  Contact me if you’re interested!  Pricing details located on the SHOP page.

Another great Pace find coming tomorrow!  Have a great Monday!
