This is the kind of sofa I daydream about…

Ethan Allen navy blue velvet sofa:
Ethan Allen navy blue velvet sofa
Asking: $1500 (sounds like it includes the throw pillows as well)
Condition: “Like new” (less than two years old)
Dimensions: 76″L x 33″H x 34″D
Location: Reston Town Center, VA
Thoughts: Seller says that the sofa originally cost $2550, so while this isn’t an amazing deal, it’s definitely a very good one. Ethan Allen makes quality pieces, and everyone knows how I go weak at the knees for navy velvet…

Check it out.

This is a great deal!

Hollywood Regency Faux Bamboo Tall Dresser
Hollywood Regency Faux Bamboo Long Dresser
Asking: $200 (for the pair)
Condition: “Both in excellent condition.”
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Alexandria, VA
Thoughts: I’m not loving the light green color and I’m indifferent to the pulls, but the price point makes these great DIY candidates. Some transformation ideas below.

So many options! You really can’t go wrong.

Looking forward to date night at the Kennedy Center to see Evita, so I’m sharing this Argentinian piece.

Handmade wool tapestry:
handmade wool tapestry from Argentina
Asking: $200
Condition: “New.”
Dimensions: 66″ x 50″
Location: Bethesda, MD
Thoughts: It’s signed by someone who may or may not be famous in the world of tapestry (not a world I know much about). I’d use as a headboard alternative probably, like here.

I’m really on the fence about both of these (and would need to see them in person to be swayed either way), but they piqued my interest. They’re from the same seller.

MCM blue ceramic and brass lamp:

Condition: “Very, very good condition considering its age.”
Dimensions: 39″T
Location: Chantilly, VA
Thoughts: I wish the shade didn’t look quite so ’70s, but I think this could have potential in the right setting.

Geometric tortoise shell lamp:

Condition: “Good condition”
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Chantilly, VA
Thoughts: Again, I’d have to see this in person–it might be wretched, but there’s enough of a chance that it’s awesome that I’d consider checking it out.

Leather arm chair with nailhead trim:

Asking: $400
Condition: “Soft leather in good condition. No tears or wearing.”
Dimensions: 33″ x 37″ x 38″
Location: NW Washington DC
Thoughts: Seller says it’s Ethan Allen, which I can’t verify since they don’t have this chair shown online, but at the price point (which seller stresses is negotiable), it’s worth checking out either way. I like the legs and the color of the leather–and if it really is soft, I’d probably be sold.

Tufted leather bench/coffee table:
tufted leather bench coffee table
Asking: $150
Condition: “Less than one year old. No tears or stains. Basically perfect condition.”
Dimensions: 48″ long x 19″ wide x 17″ high
Location: Capitol Hill, DC
Thoughts: Versatile–works just as well at the foot of a bed or at a small dining table as it does as a coffee table.

Silver ship mounted on leather:

Asking: $25
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: 9 1/2″ x 12″
Location: Laurel, MD
Thoughts: Kind of a random addition to this list, but I’m always drawn to nautical things, so you shouldn’t be surprised. This could be a cool piece to mix into a gallery wall.

Dimensions: 29″ tall, 31″ arm-to-arm
Location: Rockville, MD
Thoughts: Unclear whether this is leather or vinyl but the shape is cool and the condition seems near perfect.

Asking: $200
Condition: “There are some marks here and there but nothing bad.”
Dimensions: 25″w x 35″h x 32″d
Location: Chevy Chase, MD
Thoughts: An alternative to the first chair–more modern, less detailed and 1/2 the price. They’re both good options in my opinion.

Asking: $150 (shade not included, unfortunately)
Condition: “Great”
Dimensions: 32″ to the top of the finial; jar is approximately 10″ in diameter
Location: Arlington, VA
Thoughts: I’m drawn to this despite its popcorny look in the photo. The coral filial (see it up there, camouflaged by the painting?) really does it for me.

My bedroom has a little nook between two closets.  It’s the best spot for my bed, and I really like the whole setup–except that there’s no space bedside tables.  Thus I always have a random assort of things on the floor next to me: a book, a water bottle, my cell phone, etc.  It’s less than ideal, but it’s really the only option right now.  Someday I’ll be a real grown-up with a nightstand, but until then, these CL finds are all for you:

Coral nightstand:

Want a bit of fun wallpaper for the back of a bookcase, petite powder room, or other small project? You’re in luck. CL has two very good options right now:

Indian/Oriental wallpaper:
indian or oriental wallpaper
Asking: $50 (unclear if that’s the price per roll, or for both available rolls)
Condition: “Good”
Dimensions: 33′ long, 21″ wide, 21″ pattern repeat
Location: Germantown, MD
Thoughts: This has so much potential. (Side note: I just discovered that “Indian wallpaper” yields the prettiest Pinterest results ever.)

Cole & Son Acquario wallpaper:
Acquario wallpaper by Cole & Son
Asking: $400 (for two rolls)
Condition: “Good”
Dimensions: Looks like 10.05 meters by 68.6cm
Location: DC
Thoughts: Crazy expensive yes, but so fun. And a slightly less crazy expensive than it would be retail (though I’m pretty sure they had it listed for $450 last week, so there might still be room for negotiation).

Check it out.
