Holy Grail!

Oh happy day!

This is soo friggin awesome!

We located our dream bamboo set…….the very rare, very desirable 6 BAND bamboo furniture set! We only paid 2 bills ($200) for this set! This set is in great shape but I am going to re-finish it to make it look like new. I was searching on CL and there it was in Oakland. It must have been divine intervention for a set this desirable not to have been gobbled up.

This is known as the Godfather rattan set because in the movie in the scenes when they were in Cuba and Florida they were sitting on six band bamboo furniture.

Anyways, I found the fabric that speaks to me and here is a sample:

Mai Tai Hibiscus Bird Paradise Barkcloth Fabric

Here are some more pictures of this soon to be restored set.

That's right, count em 1, 2, 3......6 BAND! Happy Day!

The glass top is not original so I plan to remove it and replace the top and veneer it. I want it too look original.

I love the basket weave on the seat and back rest.

3 Separate Sections

Two really great chairs.

  1. OMG! I think I actually gasped aloud and then hit the floor – out cold from the pure beauty of this furniture and the thought of the price you paid! AWESOME!!! LOVE IT!!! WANNA SIT ON IT WHEN IT IS DONE! I love the fabric to which you are responding for it…. I completely agree. You are truly blessed with a gift to “come across” good deals. Cheers! Sherry

      I gasped when I saw it on CL. We are so excited to finally find a set and look forward to finishing it. Thanks for your post Sherry!

  4. I had this same set as one of my “holy grails” also..but I ended up finding a 4band set instead.

    Its amazing how much of this is floating around.

      4 band is nice. You are right, I have noticed that there is a lot of rattan out there but it seems not too many buyers. They don’t know what they are missing.
