in search of mid-mod
We had too many beds in the house, so Cristybella successfully sold one on craigslist. The next day we rearranged and found ourselves in need of a couple of chairs. Two comfy lounging chairs, to be precise.
Last weekend we spent an evening torturing ourselves by looking at gorgeous chairs on the houzz website. It all started when we decided to check out the classic Barcelona lounge chair (image borrowed from houzz).
I KNOW, right!? Doesn’t get much more beautiful than that.
We both love the uncomplicated look and wonderful design of the mid-mod furniture style.
The retro vibe completely grabs my attention.
Craigslist is littered with random furniture. This little item (below) stood out among the myriad of used chairs. This is the photo from the original ad — a guy named Ronnie who sells furniture out of this dimly lit, crammed-full-of-stuff-building that’s not really a store. He just sees customers by appointment only.
It’s not as beautiful as the ThriveFurniture piece….
But for a tiny fraction of the cost…I totally scooped it up. It’s definitely a vintage piece and has the comfortable low-slung frame that we wanted. Tackling cushions next, and keeping an eye open for an attractive companion….stay tuned.
What sorts of CL successes have you had lately?
Thanks for dropping in! Wishing you a fabulous weekend!!
