When looking for items online always remember to look at the seller’s list. On Used Everywhere or Kijiji you can click to see what else the seller is offering. And sometimes, if they have multiple items, you can scoop up a bunch at once. When I picked up my task lamp I also scooped up some great vintage bamboo frames:
Funny, because the same room that I showed you with the task lamp, also had a great big bamboo frame. Emily Henderson and I must be on the same wavelength:
I really like the look of bamboo frames in the right context.
Tropical or “zen” themed room = NO.
But something more eclectic, and less theme-y? YES.
Unfortunately, the previous owner went themey:
But as soon as I took the pixelated computer print-out “art” out of the frames they began to look more sophisticated.
I’m not sure what I’ll put in these frames. But it’ll have nothing to do with palm trees, panda bears, or cruise ships.
The finish is a silvery gold (goldish silver?) and the tiniest bit chippy, which I like.
The mattes have an weird mottled look, so I plan on wrapping them in fabric - probably just a natural linen.
