I’ve been super into scouring auction and marketplace sites online lately and love finding beautiful pieces with a little age to them! I get so many questions about these armchairs I found on Craigslist and had reupholstered so I thought it’d be fun to share a couple other recent finds that have come to live with us. A few other sites I check regularly are AptDeco, Black Rock Galleries, Chairish, Facebook Marketplace, The Local Vault, and Town & Sea. I’ll round up a few similar vintage pieces in the slideshow at the end of the post!
The first find is this antique library table that I found for my husband’s office. It has a round leather top that fits books and swivels and it’s just so perfectly Will that I knew we had to have it. I had never seen anything like it before and was absolutely giddy to surprise him with it on Christmas morning! Right now it’s to the right of the vintage chesterfield sofa in his office (another Craigslist find from several years back!) and it’s one of my favorite pieces in our home. If you’re looking for something similar, I’d search terms like “drum table,” “leather top table,” and “round library table.”
The second find is this mahogany bow front dresser that’s currently along the back wall of our living room. I’ve always loved this style (which you can usually find by searching “bow front,” “Hepplewhite,” “serpentine,” or “Sheraton” dressers) and when this one came up in nearly perfect condition, my dad, brother, and I drove to pick it up the same day! It’s offering much needed storage for stationery and games and I love that it adds a little history to our otherwise light and bright living room.
Do you do any vintage furniture shopping online? Any tips or fabulous finds? I’m all ears!
