What Chairish item did you buy that you’d like to share a story about?

A burnt bamboo plant stand/table

In what room did you use it in? 

My living room

In a few words, how would you describe your interior design style? 

Eccentric, collected, and classic

How did you find the item you bought on Chairish, and what made you choose it? Did you have a specific search or were you just browsing? 

I was looking for a piece to fill a little spot in my living room… I always love the patina and rich finish of burnt bamboo and did a search for this material and found the perfect table for the spot.

Did you know where you’d put this piece in your home when you bought it, or did you figure you’d find the right spot? 

It has already moved around a little but is happiest in its intended spot!

Why do you love shopping vintage? And how does sustainability factor into your choices of new products vs. vintage finds? 

I love vintage because it brings a lot of character to a space. I also love that it’s as close to immediate gratification as possible right now and yes, the issue of sustainability is extremely important. I am committed to trying my best to not buy things that will end up in a landfill.

Are there any dream vintage or antique pieces you wish you could have? 

A pair of Jacques Adnet lounge chairs and Gabriella Crespi Fungo table lamps … to name just a couple.
