Recalling the work of famed Italian designer Gabriella Crespi, pencil reed bamboo decor adds just the right amount of organic glamour to almost anywhere in your home. While the material was a staple of 1970s and ’80s design, it is being re-discovered and utilized in every kind of interior and aesthetic, from streamlined midcentury, to Scandinavian minimalism, to an eclectic boho mix of all styles. The warm caramel color is versatile, and adds subtle texture to your space. As with many relics of that era, these pieces are ripe for a comeback, and it’s easy to see why.
We happen to have a few pencil reed pieces as part of our Coveted Home Flea inventory, both in impeccable condition.
