Here are some random things I found on Craigslist this week that would be seriously tempting... if I had the space and the money!
Pair of 70’s knoll velvet chairs - $500. So tempted to go check these out!
I'd have to loose the patent leather in favor of something a little softer than hot pink on hot pink (say velvet or a print?) but I love the pink painted wood! Hot Pink Louis XVI chair - $595.
Cute Red Vintage Bench - $60, though I'd want to change out the fabric (and it's clearly just been reupholstered).
Maybe it could be reupholstered in one of these fabrics I spotted the other day at Michael Levine, Diamond Foam & Fabrics and Deco Fabrics respectively.
Okay maybe not. Bears further thought. I digress.
I'm kind of digging this set of 2 Velvet Sitting Chairs - $75, though they're not usually the sort of thing I go for. I do love that they're on casters.
Stunning "wine velvet" Armless 10' Sofa - $1000. Super tempting!! Again, not usually the sort of thing I'd go for but I love the shape and color combo! It reminds me of a fabulous sage green velvet armless sofa belonging to a friend of ours in Carmel that I've always admired.
Then over on Etsy, I found this amazing set of Vintage Drexel Pink Velvet Tufted Chairs for $499.99 at Vintage Modern Design. We have the EXACT same chairs in our sunroom. Ours are the exact color of chocolate chip mint ice cream - minus the chocolate chips! I bought them for much less than $500, delivered. These are seriously adorable though!
A photo of our chairs below - are they not the same? Maybe not, but very close!!
Do I think it's a coincidence that almost everything I'm lusting after is red or pink?! Yes. The fact that they're almost all velvet? No, that's definitely not a coincidence! Okay, so maybe not entirely random finds!
I did also find the most amazing bamboo chinoiserie china hutch/ secretary type thing on Craigslist this week, but safari crashed and for the life of me I can't find it again! Oh well, at $1,000 I couldn't really afford it anyway, or have anywhere to put it!
