Gray seems to be everyone’s favorite neutral these days, so here’s a round up of some of my favorite gray items on CL.

5x8 gray trellis rug

Condition: New
Dimensions: 5’x8′

Pair of Barbara Cosgrove lampshades:
Barbara Cosgrove gray lampshades pair
Asking: $120
Condition: New
Dimensions: 13″ diameter, 8.5″ high
Location: Alexandria, VA
Thoughts: If you’ve never shopped for lampshades before, you probably think I’m crazy, but if you have, you know that attractive/well-made ones are surprisingly expensive, so two for $120 doesn’t sound unreasonable to me (though I’d probably try to negotiate down a bit anyway).

Rustic gray wall display cabinet:
rustic gray wall cabinet
Asking: $100
Condition: “Good”
Dimensions: 16.25″ L x 5″ W x 23.5″ H
Location: Clarendon, VA
Thoughts: Cute way to add a little extra storage to a bathroom, kitchen or entryway. Probably a bit overpriced.

Gray leather sofa:
gray leather sofa
Asking: $2200 $2000
Condition: “MINT condition – no scratches at all. It comes with 10 year structural warranty.”
Dimensions: 98″w x 38″d x 33″h
Location: Sterling, VA
Thoughts: I know, this is super expensive for CL, but it’s beautiful. And a really good looking leather sofa is hard to find used.

Ikat (pronounced “ee-cot”): a fabric in which the yarns have been tie-dyed before weaving; (now it’s often used to describe the resulting pattern, even if the traditional dying method isn’t used)

Ikat is a trends with staying power. At least, I like to think it is, since it’s a trend I actually like. If you’re not familiar with this word, you’re likely quite familiar with the kinds of patterns the technique produces. I love that it looks fancy in a cool/global way but not overly designed. What do you think?

Ikat stool:
ikat ottoman
Asking: $270
Condition: “In perfect condition”
Dimensions: 27″ W; 22″ D; 19″ H
Location: Gaithersburg, MD
Thoughts: Waaaaay to expensive for CL, but it’s pretty, isn’t it?

Check it out. No longer available

Ikat rug:
pink ombre ikat rug
Asking: $125
Condition: “Perfect condition”
Dimensions: 5′ x 8′
Location: Arlington (Courthouse), VA
Thoughts: Ombre and ikat–can you handle than much trendiness? Personally, I’d love this in a modern nursery.

Ikat loveseat:
ikat loveseat
Asking: $490
Condition: “The cushions are all down filled and extremely comfortable.”
Dimensions: It measures 54′ wide x 39″ high at top of arch x 33″ deep. The seat depth is a roomy 22.5″
Location: Chevy Chase, MD
Thoughts: Most people are afraid of patterned sofas/loveseats, but if the rest of your furniture was fairly neutral, this could be a great statement piece. And while the price might seem high for a (CL) loveseat, keep in mind that its a designer piece that’s beautifully upholstered. Look how perfectly the pattern on the front of the seat cushions lines up with the skirt–that’s the kind of detail that sets apart a mediocre piece from a really nice one.

Two pairs of Ikat drapes:
Padna Ikat drapes
Asking: $495 (includes 4 panels, 2 curtain rods and the rings to hang them)
Condition: “Custom-made, lined and pinch-pleated”
Dimensions: 84″ L
Location: Arlington (Clarendon), VA
Thoughts: I usually make my own curtains, but since I can’t sew, I’m limited to what can be created with an iron and hem tape… Needless to say, mine aren’t fancy enough to be lined or pinch-pleated, so these look impressive to me.  Gorgeous drapes can make a space feel so much more luxurious (see here, here, here or here for examples), so these might be worth a splurge if you’re into the muted palette and the ikat-look.

Ikat shell chair:
ikat shell chair
Asking: $175
Condition: “Brand new. Teal color is darker that photo shows.”
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Falls Church, VA
Thoughts: This would be a great statement piece for a home office. If nothing else, it would make you feel a little better when you’re paying your bills.

Rugs seem to consistently get the most click-throughs here on DCCL, so I’m taking that as a sign that y’all want more rugs. Here’s a whole bunch, in pretty much every style imaginable…

Exciting things are happening and I cannot wait to share. But I’m going to test my willpower and try to hold off until things are a bit more concrete. Until then, how about these fun finds…

Pair of medieval brass rubbing prints:
pair of medieval brass rubbing prints
Asking: $70 for the pair
Condition: Glass missing from the knight frame; otherwise “excellent condition”
Dimensions: 65 1/2″ H, 24 3/4″ W
Location: Leesburg, VA
Thoughts: I had a similar knight rubbing, and I thought it was quirky and charming. (Now I’m wondering what happened to that… hmm…) You’d have to get a piece of glass cut, but I think it might be worth it.

Moroccan rug:
moroccan rug
Asking: $50
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: 57″ x 39″

Cute little wicker chair:
cute little wicker chair
Asking: $30 
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Centerville, VA
Thoughts: I still haven’t gotten a chair for my vanity, and I think this one might be perfect. Except I’d probably spray paint it a high gloss forest green. That and the fact that I have no idea when I’d be able to get to Centerville to retrieve it and I don’t really have a clue what it’s dimensions are–otherwise perfect though. ;)

Vintage milk can with American eagle motif:

Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Centerville, VA
Thoughts: Cool way to celebrate your patriotism.

And look at that–I completely unintentionally ended up with a round-up of all <$100 finds. Gotta love CL!

Maybe it’s because our days our getting shorter and our nights are getting longer again, but I’ve been attracted to some dark-as-night pieces on CL lately…

Antique Weiman display cabinets:
Antique Weiman Display Cabinets
Asking: $400 for the pair or $250 a piece
Condition: ”3 glass shelves are not included … Paint has some chips and scratches. Some chips and dings in the wood. Glass is in fine condition.”
Dimensions: 78″H x 27″W x 14 1/2″D
Location: Alexandria, VA
Thoughts: These are such a neat shape. They’d be fantastic in a masculine study/office. The fact that they’re missing the shelves is a bit of a bummer–adds an extra step to actually using them.

West Elm 5×8 Empire Kilim:
West Elm 5x8 Empire Kilim : Dhurrie Rug
Asking: $200 Reduced to $185
Condition: ”Like new”
Dimensions: 5′ x 8′
Location: Falls Church, VA
Thoughts: I’m drawn to the rich tones of this over-dyed rug. They didn’t include pictures of their actual rug (annoying), but said that theirs is darker.

Howard Miller Grand Cru wine bar:
Howard Miller Grand Cru Wine Bar
Asking: $895
Condition: ”In excellent condition”
Dimensions: 80″ T x 35″ W x 19″ D
Location: Falls Church, VA
Thoughts: It’s priced too high for CL (it sells for $1200 on Overstock), but I like the way it’s organized: room for 40 wine bottles on the bottom, upside down wine glasses hanging from the top, and everything else you need for an at-home bar in between. Seller is moving out of state, so I’m guessing there should be plenty of negotiating room with this one.

I love traditional rugs, but their contemporary counterparts can be quite fun too:

Urban Outfitters aqua zigzag rug
Asking: $75
Condition: ”Like new.”
Dimensions: 5’x7′ (ish)

West Elm Kite Kilim:
West Elm Kite Kilim rug
Asking: $200
Condition: Not described

Every Wednesday I hope to post one weird and/or wonderful CL find. Up first is an item that is both weird and wonderful…

Tibetan tiger rug:
tibetan tiger rug
Asking: $650
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: 32″ by 69″
Location: NW DC
Thoughts: I don’t think I’m fierce enough to pull this guy off, but I can totally see him in an Elle Decor spread. Even if you can’t imagine him in your living room or bedroom, can’t you see him working in a really cool nursery?

Hand-knotted pink tribal rug:

Asking:
 $350
Condition: Not described

8×10 West Elm rug:

West Elm rug
Asking: $299 [No longer available]
Condition: Not described (a year old)
Dimensions: 8′ x 10′
Location: Bethesda, MD
Thoughts: This particular style isn’t for sale anymore, but if you were to buy another Dhurrie (flat-weave rug) from WE right now, you’d pay $575 with shipping (but pre-tax), so you’d be getting this one was almost 1/2 off. And the graphic pattern is fun.
