Of all the beautiful Ambella Home console tables and accents tables that we stock, the Voronado accent table is one of the most dramatic. So it’s great to have a chance to show it off in this customer spotlight!
Nellie V. in San Diego, CA bought the Voronado fluted accent table from us. This is the table in the catalog shot. Glamorous, huh? It combines style with substance though. As with all Ambella Home Collection furniture, it is meticulously crafted. The solid mindi wood table features mirrored accents all around to reflect the light.
Here’s a close-up of the table top because it’s really hard to photograph mirrored furniture when the piece is in a room. It just reflects all the light and colors surrounding it! But this bird’s eye view shows the great shape of the sunburst design.
A close-up of the Voranado pedestal table scroll feet shows the attention to detail in the craftsmanship, as well as the textured gold leaf finish. So now let’s see the table in Nellie’s home in California…
You can tell how shiny and clear the high-quality mirrored table top is because it reflects the leather wall panels in every intricate detail. Those handsome wall panels have a little dark gold in them, which I’m sure ties in nicely with the gold leaf table finish.
The chairs boast a lovely satin silver upholstery. “I just got them, that is why I was looking for the table with mirror,” Nellie told me. “It actually looks much better live than on the pictures.” Well, the pictures make it all look fabulous enough so the in-person effect must be stunning!
When I first looked at the photos Nellie sent, I was wowed by what a gorgeous floor she has. I’ve never seen wooden floors with a herringbone pattern before. I wondered if she lives in an old house… so I asked her.
Nellie said that the house is a mere 15 years old and she bought it new. The herringbone wood floors were installed 5 years during a remodeling. “We were going for the old European look throughout,” said Nellie.
Nellie also mentioned that the room is round, so that informed her choice to pick a round accent table.
The Ambella Home Voronado accent table is a piece that could fit with a variety of home decor styles, but many people would consider it a great example of Hollywood Regency style. Hollywood Regency style harkens back to the most luxurious golden era of Hollywood around the 1930s and it combined a bunch of different influences. Those influences include the most glamorous elements of English and French Regency furniture as well as the chic allure of Art Deco design. Opulent gilded finishes are typical of the look, as are reflective surfaces from lacquered finishes to glittering mirrored furniture like this Ambella Home table.
I’ll write more about the trend and especially the mirrored furniture trend in another blog post later this month. Till then, thank you Nellie for giving us a glimpse inside your home so we can enjoy your exquisite mirrored accent table!
