posted by Meghan on 2011.02.22, under 1stDibs Picks
Should you ever find yourself in the market for a 1955 Frank Lloyd Wright lounge chair (to the tune of $15k+), 1stDibs is most likely where youâ€™ll want to look first (www.1stdibs.com). This online middleman for luxury antique and vintage items has a dizzying selection of beautiful things, making it a daily destination for interior designers on the hunt for special pieces. Not surprisingly, 99% of the things listed on 1stDibs on any given day are beyond the reach of most mere mortals. But he who seeks shall find, and FM has managed to find some absolute steals for $200 or below, no schlepping to the flea market required. – FM
Every room needs an antique French chalk Jesus watching over it, I always say.
Does one need a vintage opera hat? No. Does one want one? Yes, one does. $150.
Love your pooch? Prove it, with this old-school iron dog bed. $175.
This gold painted mirror from the 1920â€™s is great for adding a bit of age to an otherwise modern bedroom or living room. $175.
Wondering what could possibly follow the antler/taxidermy phase weâ€™re slowly coming out of? Well, here you have it: old snow shoes. This antique Canadian pair is by no means cheap ($200), but could prove entirely practical should Snowpocalypse strike again.
