Product Description

A cool, decorative storage column…

Here we have a unique and functional piece! Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we understand from the previous owner that this was reclaimed from a cafe in Paris, and could date to the mid to late part of the 20th century. This decorative column is made in a thin metal and finished with a thick wooden base and wooden top. One can simply lift the wooden lid, to reveal the inner space or hidden area where one could store multiple things. This could be used in one’s hall way to pop one’s umbrellas in, or maybe it could be one of those current keepsake boxes, where one could hide some important documents or pieces. Cool thing hey!

To finish it off, an individual has painted a beautiful mural with flamingos and an oriental waterside feel. It’s got a great look, and this wouldn’t look out of place in one’s home or of course a retail setting. Lastly, it’s lightweight, meaning it could easily be moved, yet equally the column perfectly ‘free stands’ and could act as a nice plant stand in any corner of a room…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and abrasions across the entire piece, along with some chipping and dents to the wood. It’s naively built, yet perfectly functional with a weathered feel in general. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
