Vintage Furniture

I'll be honest, I don't know much about vintage furniture. Oh, I love the look of it, but don't ask me any detailed questions. Vintage is like anything else, not everyone knows everything about all areas. There are so many areas, glass, jewelry, primitives, art, furniture, and the list could go on forever. That's why Antiques Roadshow have experts that handle certain areas, such as the pottery table or ephemera booth. Vintage furniture isn't one of my areas, but I love to learn more about it. I was surprised and pleased that Etsy had vintage furniture sellers, and some great items.

Domus Modern on Etsy has this Knoll Barcelona Chair for sale, and it's a classic yet unique style.

This great chair is for sale at FunkyQuailVintage on Etsy. This color would work with about any space, and would add a touch of the 60s to any room.

This is a clear Lucite chair and table that dates from the 60s, per the information given by brownsugarvintage on Etsy. Aren't they a great set? The only flaw is it wouldn't work too well for hide and seek.

Wow, awesome furniture! I would love to decorate like that, if I ever stop traveling!

Oh my Gosh! My grandmother had a Lucite table like that one (only it was round) on her patio. I used to love visiting because we were allowed to sit out there with homemade cookies and the cool see-through table. Love it!

Thanks for the compliment Jan. Tawny, do you know what happened to the table? It had to be so fun as a kid.

You know you're getting old when things labeled vintage, you grew up with. My parents had the Barcelona chairs,got tired of them and sold them for a decent price but I sure do wish they were around. A classic!
