I’ve recently been feeling the pull back to Craigslist and to this blog. History would suggest that the pull won’t last, but let’s look at some unique finds and good deals while it’s in effect, shall we?

Pair of green barrel chairs:
Vintage hollywood regency barrel with green upholstery
Asking: $500 for the pair [though there are multiple postings with prices up to $650]
Condition: ”Some scrapes”
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Not provided
Thoughts: The dearth of information in this listing is probably a bad sign, but I’m so drawn to the color and shape of these that I still had to share.

Another green chair:
Green Wool Button-Tufted Side Chair
Asking: $200 OBO
Condition: ”Excellent condition. Solid construction, real wood legs. Recently reupholstered.”
Dimensions: 30″ tall x 23″ wide x 24″ deep. Seat height 14.5″
Location: Takoma, DC
Thoughts: Not sure why my first to finds are green chairs, but this one is pretty fantastic too–and totally different with it’s MCM design. Love the upholstery and the brass detail on the top.

MCM Recliner:
MCM Recliner 
MCM Reliner lounge chair
Asking: $450
Condition: ”The naugahyde is in very good vintage condition with minimal wear marks. It was built very well and is incredibly sturdy; it reclines like the day it was made.”
Dimensions: 37″ wide x 34″ deep x 42″ tall with a seat width of 22.5″ and a seat depth of 20″
Location: Alexandria, VA
Thoughts: If the naugahyde doesn’t feel too cheap/plasticky, someone should jump on this. The color is great, and the shape is super fun, if you’re into MCM design. I also like that you don’t see this design all over the place (like the lovely but ubiquitous Eames lounger).
