One item on my wish list… a vintage Thomasville pagoda headboard for our guest room, just like the one used by Kelly Wearstler below. However, they are quite difficult to find, and when you do, they are usually beyond my budget. I have seen them go for well over $3,000 on 1st Dibs. From time to time, Circa Who and Palm Beach Regency will find one, only to be scooped up within a matter of days, sometimes hours!
In my fevered search, I came across a post by Danika at GorgeousShiny Things, who stumbled upon a vintage Thomasville pagoda dresser, two mirrors and two nightstands for $299 at her local Salvation Army! Now that is the deal of the century!
Danika’s Vintage Thomasville headboard set, found at Salvation Army. Sooo jealous!!
I also found Beth’s post at Chinoiserie Chic on this gorgeous headboard she uncovered through LIV Vintage on Etsy, unfortunately long gone. And of course LIV is just a hop, skip and a jump from me, up in Fort Lauderdale.
I would love to see what the lucky owner did with this beauty! I’m guessing it is living up in Palm Beach now, recovered in some really fabulous Chinoiserie fabric.
After months of pursuit, I finally found this fabulous vintage pagoda headboard from kenedita on eBay. Edita is located in Sarasota, FL, and she always has the most amazing Palm Beach Chic/Hollywood Regency items available through her eBay store, at INCREIBLE bargains. This headboard was only $260, and now it is mine! ☺
It needs a fresh coat of paint, and I plan to upholster the middle (more on that to come)… It's not Thomasville, but I just love it, and the bamboo accents are so chic!
