Hollywood Regency first took hold in the 1920s and 30s and continued right on prospering all the way into the 60s and some 70s. Originally the style represented glamour, and was inspired by the homes of Hollywood's elite. Today, Hollywood Regency still exists and continues to evolve. Many people embrace Hollywood Regency because it combines the best elements of luxury. We see the indulgence in rare fur throws, polished stone floors, marble based side tables, and brass accessories. Hollywood regency adds a touch of prestige, compared to the minimal approach to modern interiors which can seem bare.Asian elements continue to dominate the market and are as extravagant as they were in the past. Bamboo has been used for centuries and was most popular in Georgian and Regency furniture, which is where Hollywood Regency borrowed its style. Faux bamboo gilt mirrors, and brass bamboo coffee tables were highly popular during the 60's, invoking that old Hollywood glamour. The look added some ornate appeal to furniture, as bamboo is quite lovely to look at.
Classic Bamboo Brass Serving Trays are especially popular in Hollywood Regency styles. Use them on chests or on ottomans for a place for snacks and accessories
Bamboo fold able tray tables are excellent furniture investments, as can easily store away, and virtually take up no room. Today, space is a luxury in most urban apartments and condos, and those of us who have lived in cramped spaces, know that every inch counts. Tray tables are multi-functional, and lightweight making them the ideal piece of furniture. Many people are ditching their coffee tables, and considering using tray tables that can be purposeful in holding that morning cup of coffee, or nightly snack, but also can be folded away when the kids need floor space to play.
Tray tables can be the ultimate piece of furniture for entertaining. My husband and I have tray table that detaches from its base, making it easier to transport from room to room. The tray can be loaded up with drinks, and snacks, and brought around to your guests, and then stationed in one area of a room. Tray tables are also perfect for parties, because they can be brought virtually anywhere without looking silly. Float them at an entryway, or outside on the patio. They also can serve as extra storage space in a guest room holding rolled up towels, fresh flowers, and rich soaps and personal care products. What house guest wouldn't want to try new hand lotion, or some supple chocolate that they normally wouldn't enjoy? Tray tables are practical, functional, and easy to introduce when you need the extra room. Tray tables just make sense.
