Filling the House with Vintage Pieces

I love, love, LOVE vintage for three reasons. One: a good find can be super cheap (that pink chair up above was only 10 bucks!) Two: It has character, a history, it’s something completely unique. Three: no precious resources had to be put into a new piece of furniture for you. Another thing about vintage- it’s usually pretty good quality (if it’s lasted this long) because things back then seemed to have been made better, no? I really like mixing rustic indian antique furniture with more elegant lighting and accents, especially anything and everything French!

We use this indian chair made from reclaimed wood as a table for our record player. It goes with our office table and some other rustic indian furniture (which you’ll see in another post).

Every time we have company over, the record player is spinning, which makes for a unique ambiance these days.

A Carpe Diem clock from Rome- basically the only souvenir we bought in Europe (besides the chandelier from Florence) next to some quartz crystals and a buddha I painted white.

A quirky antique wrought iron candelabra and a frame made from some leftover pieces of wood from houses in New Orleans after the hurricane. And the vase… Michaels.

And my favorite- the wrought iron chandelier with roses. I bought that baby in Amsterdam, but it’s originally from Florence, and it was made in the 60′s. And yes, finding lightbulbs for it in The States was a pain in the arse. But then, I found Lightbulbs Unlimited.
