My boyfriend and I have been looking for a new place to live the last few weeks and it has caused a sudden urge in me to have more art deco furniture. I started perusing Etsy and feel madly in love with some items that I stand no chance of affording; much like Fashion Friday's. I did, however, feel that they were just too beautiful not to share.
I know most of you are vintage clothing/jewelry enthusiast but what about your home. Is it decorated with vintage (no this doesn't really mean 1970's) furniture? Are you that lucky person that lives amongst gorgeous vintage furniture?
For me, Art Deco furniture is as beautiful as it can possibly get. There is something about the way they brought out the wood grains, the lines of the furniture, the mixture of metals and wood, it all just drives me wild. What era is your favorite for furniture? What draws you in?
Let's start with this astounding piece, a magnificent compact English Art Deco walnut bar. I'd purchase this in a heartbeat if it didn't cost $8,800.00. Wow, that is pricey.
The second item I came across was this gorgeous 1920's chandelier. Beautifully detailed brass and frosted molded glass with four hanging frosted turn down matching glass globes. Can you imagine that hanging over the bar above because I can.
Anyone that looks at this blog... um ever... knows that I am in love with makeup. It is truly the one thing that I can do well and it always makes me feel glamorous and put together. What I don't have currently is a real vanity. If I could afford one, this would probably be it. Thought this one would set me back $525.00 and I'd still have to find a seat.
With this last item, a lot of readers are going to ask themselves what I am thinking but this 1920's Alcazar gas stove makes me swoon. The colors, the style, just the whole darned thing. It's not that expensive at $725.00 considering what a new gas range will cost.
Tell me about the vintage items in your house. Where did you get them? What is your favorite piece?
