I love vintage corbels, and the chippier the better. Corbels have become a decorative accessory sought out by many, and are hard to find. It seems no 2 corbels are the same when out hunting, but their uses around the house are endless.
I don’t scope out auctions every weekend like some of you, and I’m quite envious of your ability to find treasures. Something about them greatly intimidates me. Maybe because whenever I would attend one with my parents growing up I felt as if reaching up to rub my eye or scratch my head would result in purchasing something no one else wanted. Those auctioneers can spot a head turn from a mile away, so I have left the hunting up to those who are well trained.
I do; however, visit my share of antique shops and always have my eyes peeled for a set of vintage corbels. I have never had any luck finding a pair, until recently. How did I get so lucky to stumble across these beauties?
Vintage Corbels (Inspired)
Truth is I didn’t find these vintage corbels out shopping one weekend. I found them in the sweetest Etsy shop, LumberandLaceUS. That’s right the owner, Kirsten, builds custom vintage inspired corbels. (insert gasp here)
No photo I take would do these corbels justice. They are stunning beyond words in person. I am truly in awe of the craftsmanship and design and would never question if they were authentic or not.
I discussed size, paint, and whether or not I wanted them distressed with Kirsten ahead of time. My original plan was to have them sitting pretty in our new custom built-ins in the living room, but after un-packaging them I felt their presence would be better suited in my office (for now).
Here is a small glimpse at some of the custom vintage inspired corbels from LumberandLaceUS.
This next photo shows how my friend, Pamela – Home on Fernhill, styled hers. I thinks it’s just gorgeous spring inspiration!
I can’t wait for you guys to check out LumberandLaceUS! I love sharing new small shops, and I know you will be impressed with the variety of sizes, designs, colors, and pricing of their vintage inspired corbels.
Have a great week!
