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:

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.

MCM office chair:

Asking: $350 reduced to $295
Condition: “Very good condition. The leather has some only some slight surface dust, with no holes, odors or stains.”
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.

Check it out. No longer available.

Crate & Barrel leather armchair:

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.

This Sunday morning I’m lusting over a piece that neither fits my decor nor my budget, but it sure is pretty…

Kilim Rug Coffee Table / Ottoman:

Asking: $1500
Condition: “Perfect”
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: McLean, VA
Thoughts: This is stunning and–I imagine–truly one of a kind. The seller has actually listed the whole room (below) for $5000, so there might be some room for negotiation on the ottoman.

I’m thinking it’s probably a bad idea, but the couch search isn’t yielding anything. And although most of the coffee tables I’ve seen on CL are pretty hideous, there are a few that warrant consideration. What do you think about these:

Ballard Designs Durham coffee table:

Asking: $300 [No longer available]
Condition: New in box (or partially in box, I guess)
Dimensions: 18.25″ high, 50″ wide, 24″ deep
Location: Bethesda, MD
Thoughts: I think this look is really charming, I just don’t think it’s right for the look I’m going for (whatever that is). And it’s not a killer deal–and that’s half the fun of CL. It’ll save you about $80 with shipping; the seller just doesn’t feel like disassembling it to return it.

Check it out.

Brass and glass coffee table:

Asking: $75 [No longer available]
Condition: Not described; looks fine
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Glover Park, DC
Thoughts: I think this would compete too much with my brass and glass shelves, since they’d be so close together. But of the brass and glass coffee tables I’ve run across, this feels a lot less ’80s to me, so that’s good. And the price is right.

Check it out.

Chrome and glass coffee table:

Asking: $80 [No longer available]
Condition: Great condition
Dimensions: 55″ long, 37.5″ wide, 17″ high
Location: Annandale, VA
Thoughts: I can’t do chrome, but I think someone could pull this off. (Not on wall-to-wall carpet though.)

1960s Lane coffee table:

Asking: $245 [No longer available]
Condition: Sturdy
Dimensions: 56″ long, 19″ wide and 14.5″ tall
Location: Fredericksburg, VA
Thoughts: Outside my price range, but it’s a beauty. Look at that dovetail detailing. Sigh…

Check it out.

Black coffee table:

Asking: $150, with two matching sets of stacking side tables [No longer available]
Condition: Not described; looks fine
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Gainsville, VA
Thoughts: Simple and substantial, with some subtle Asian details. I don’t hate them.

Larkin Co. golden oak coffee table:

Asking: $200 [No longer available]
Condition: Small dent in one corner; otherwise excellent condition
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Arlington, VA
Thoughts: Confession: This is the only one I’m actually considering. I was hoping to pay $150 or less for a coffee table, but I could stretch that a little. (Another confession: My “budget” is based on absolutely nothing logical.) Normally I’m not a fan of oak, but this looks surprisingly cool and not-dated. Do you agree?
