When I go out pursuing vintage, I look for pieces that speak to me, that would work in today’s decor, and add interest to a space. I don’t carry a shopping list. But, in the back of my mind, there are always a few things I’m keeping an eye out for. There are pieces for my own home that I’d like – as well as pieces that would be fun to offer through the Pursuing Vintage Shop.
In my own home, I’m on the look-out for a vintage classroom map. I’d like the roll-down type, and preferably one that features either the entire US, Virginia, or Illinois (where we have family).
I’d also like a dining room table. I found terrific faux bamboo dining chairs in 2014, and now I need a great table to showcase them. I prefer a pedestal table – and oval would be best in my space. Other than that criteria, I don’t really know what I’m looking for. I think I’ll know it when I see it. These tables are amazing, and I’d bring either of these home in a heartbeat.
I also want a pair of ram or ibex bookends.
For my bedroom, I’m looking for a unique, antique side table or small writing table. Something a little rustic or primitive. This one is amazing.
I’d also love to continue to stock the Pursuing Vintage Shop with amazing finds, and these would be so fun to find:
I’d be happy to score any of these great finds in 2015! Is there anything on your wish list?
