I have been trying to find a desk chair for my slowly-coming-together office and was debating on whether to go modern or vintage. The zig-zag rug (post on that here) is modern, but I am refinishing an antique door from the 1920's to use as the table top for my desk, so the room is a mix of modern and vintage. My debate on which direction to go with the chair was settled when I found this chair waiting for me at the flea market:
And with a price tag of only $6, I had to take it home with me! (You can see a little bit of the antique door in the background. Hopefully I get it refinished this century!) I think I can incorporate more modern touches with the other furniture and textiles to create a good sense of balance...
I also got these candlesticks for $2. I can't wait to have a variety of silver and crystal holders for tapers and tealights to make a variety of fun arrangements, and these are a great start to my collection.
And last but not least, I found this cool work on canvas that is sketchy-- in a good way. The frame is a little junky and it needs a light cleaning, but I love this painting, and at $3, the decision to purchase wasn't much of a decision!

It's almost Friday-- hang in there, everyone!!!
