An English bamboo table

The first antique I owned was a tiny English bamboo side table. It's been a workhorse over the years, sitting next to my couch, bed and finally beside a chair in my office. 

The versatile size is what I love most about these pieces, which first became popular in the late 1800s in England. Joni Webb of Cote de Texas has photographed many rooms over the years with English bamboo tables:

I found this version on my last buying trip. The top has been covered in a pretty leopard print, which makes it even more charming! It's for sale in my booth at Antique Row, $325.
