Set of 4 Virtue of California chairs:
virtue of california chairs
Asking: $300 OBO
Condition: “Gold patina with a bit of wear due to the years… otherwise the chairs are in excellent condition.”
Dimensions: Height of seat–18″; height of arms–24″; height of back–32″
Location: Leesburg, VA
  I’m assuming the seats are vinyl, not leather, which might look cheap/unsexy in person, but if it looks like leather (or is leather), these would be so hot. And even if it’s not, I’d totally consider reupholstering them.

There’s no rhyme nor reason with these. I just find them all intriguing:

White atomic desk:

Condition: ”Some light wear to the finish (e.g, chips, dings, etc.)”
Dimensions: 45″l, 20″w, 29″h
Location: Catonsville, MD
Thoughts: It looks a little dingy now, but with a little elbow grease, this could be something really special.

Asking: $680 OBO Reduced to $650 OBO
Condition: ”Only bought a few months ago. BEAUTIFUL.”
Dimensions: 72″L x 36″W x 30″H
Location: Mt. Rainier, MD
Thoughts: It’s pricy, but if you were to buy it new, it would be $795 not including tax or delivery (and they offer to deliver within 10 miles). Also, these people are seriously stylish and have a number of other cool items for sale all on this same post, so click through to check those out.

Faux bamboo sideboard:

Asking: $225 (But there’s actually a whole matching set available, and I like all of it.)
Condition: ”Very very good condition”
Dimensions: 70″W x 32″H x 20″D
Location: Herndon, VA
Thoughts: This is my favorite piece in the set–and I think it would work well on its own–but the full set is worth checking out too. Set includes 6 chairs, a dining table and a hutch to top the sideboard. Seller emphasizes that priority and discount would be given to anyone who wants to buy the whole set…

Antique French two-seater sofa:
antique French two-seater sofa/loveseat
Asking: $900 OBO
Condition: ”No imperfections.”
Dimensions: Not provided, but they call it a two-seater, so it’s petite
Location: DC
Thoughts: I adore this little sofa.  Please buy it and invite me over so I can fawn all over it. (It’s been reupholstered in deep green velvet, btw.)

It’s been about 9 months since I last posted. A lot’s happened in that time–new job, new boyfriend, some running PRs, a bit of travel, and plenty of fun times–but I won’t bore you with excuses. Let’s just get back to it, shall we?

I’m helping a friend design a room for her daughter, and I was poking through CL looking for treasures. Here are some good finds that just don’t make the cut for this particular project:

 MCM Coffee Table:
coffee table
Asking: $110
Condition: One “blemish” (looks like a ring from a wet class), but as the poster says, it could easily be hidden by coffee table books.
Dimensions: 37″ in diameter and 17″ in height
Location: Fairfax Station, VA
Thoughts: Beautiful piece for an excellent price.

Pair of Industrial Parts Bins / Shelving Units:

Asking: $1500 for the one on the left; $1100 for the one on the right; $2200 for the pair
Condition: Cleaned. Otherwise perfectly imperfect.
Dimensions: 7′ tall by 3′ wide
Location: Leesburg, VA
Thoughts: It the right space, these could be amazing. They remind me of the playroom in this project by Emily Henderson.

Previously Featured Dining Room Set:
Dining Room Set
Asking: $600–includes china cabinet, buffet (click through to see), mirror (click through to see), table with two extensions, and six chairs.
Condition: Not described.
Dimensions: N/A
Location: DC
Thoughts: When I posted this way, way back, they were asking $1000, which I thought was fair. Now it’s an absolute steal. Sometimes it pays to wait it out!

Occasionally–maybe once a week, maybe less frequently–I’m going to attempt to do some inspiration rooms with CL finds. We shall see how it goes. Up first, a soft, feminine dining room.

If this is your style:
