Vintage Bamboo Folding Chair

11.17.2015

When I shared the new look in the great room yesterday I didn't show y'all this side of the room. Today I want to show y'all my favorite find from the country living fair. I was looking around in one of the booths and I spied this vintage bamboo folding chair sitting behind the booth.




I gasped when I saw it and thought what a cool chair. I wasn't sure if it was for sale since it wasn't displayed in the booth.

I asked one of the vendors if it was for sale and she said "yes"!

It was a good price and off with me it went.



It has these cool leather straps and as you can see it has some imperfections. Looks like someone chewed on the corner of the seat, but that just adds to the charm of an older piece.

This makes a great extra seat and if I don't want to use it I can simply fold it and store it away.

For now it is sitting out so I can enjoy my new favorite find.

Do you have anything new to share? I hope you'll come back tonight and join Wow Us Wednesdays at 7pmET.

  2. I love the chair! Those leather straps are a super touch to the finish. Great find, Kim! My grandmother has a solid wood bamboo-look console table that I keep trying to figure out what to do with it...it needs refinished but holy cow it would be beautiful now that I've seen that chair:D

  6. You find the most fabulous things - and I love the cabinet next to the chair.

    I would love to share my kitchen today and maybe, just maybe the painter will finish so I can put everything back and take pictures this afternoon.

  13. What a great piece, Kim. I have never seen one like it. I wonder if they replaced the leather at some time-it looks like it is in really good shape...love the "dog-chewed" corner. lol xo Diana

  18. Great find Kim! I'm kinda addicted to chairs too, I just can't pass one up, even though I don't have room for them. I love to find old ones that are quirky and different.
