Hollywood Regency Bamboo Chandeliers

I love faux bamboo chandeliers.
They are classic Palm Beach chic.

I found my first faux bamboo chandelier while visiting my Mom in Pennsylvania.  She's my good luck shopping charm.  Every time we go out together I always find the best stuff.  We found this one at a house sale.  Of course my Mom spotted it and pointed it out.  The owners hated it and were swapping it out for a new fixture. They said I could have it for $8.00!
Here it is hanging in my sun room.

Here's another image of it reflected in my Greek Key mirror on the mantel.

I found another faux bamboo chandelier in one of my favorite shops in Pennsylvania,
Diamond Antiques.  It was quite a bit more than my first find.  I sold it to a friend and then when she decided she didn't want it, I bought it back.  I'm so glad I did.  It was painted yellow but I decided to paint it orange.  This chandelier hangs in a corner of my family room above my desk.

This is another view of it in place.

So, have I sold you on finding a bamboo chandelier?



  1. Oh I love the larger one, how fabulous and what a super find. The orange one is stunning too. Yes, I could live with one of those. Hugs, Marty

  2. ooh i am trying to decide what we will use in our dining room and after seeing this i think i need an orange one like yours! it's amazing!!!!!!

  3. I am always on the lookout for one of those.....but they are usually over 200.00 when I see them!

  4. I love your bamboo chandeliers! Awesome in red! I am going to start looking for one of these!

    Thanks for the inspiration.
