eBay is giving us midnight web surfers cause to celebrate with their latest platform, eBay Collective — a curated marketplace of gallery-worthy antiques, sourced from dealers across the country. This is not the place for basics; instead, think historic, often one-of-kind pieces rescued from the dark corners of grand estates.
The platform is searchable by category and style — perfect for a little fantasy window shopping. Of course, I dived in, and quickly found a dream mix of mid-century modern and Art Deco — definite bookmarks for that eclectic living room I hope to have one fine day. Check out these delectable finds below.
Leleu Fireworks Cabinet — Maison Gerard, New York, NY
This one’s for the future grandkids — if they’re good. From iconic French designer Jules Leleu circa 1946, this Art Deco gem features mother-of-pearl and ebony inlay.
Edward Wormley Loveseat — Objects20c, West Palm Beach, FL
We’re leaning in on Pantone pink with this ladylike loveseat. Wormley is celebrated for marrying traditional silhouettes with the mid-century modern aesthetic of his era. The result is a cute and curvaceous sofa with personality — like a best friend always ready with rose.
Rastad and Relling Lounge Chairs — Den Mobler, Los Angeles, CA
Courtesy of Norwegian designers Rolf Rastad and Adolf Relling, these twin 1960s chairs are textbook Scandinavian cool. Den Mobler lovingly reupholstered the seats in a delicious brown that works well with the restored teak frames.
Danish Nesting Tables — Mid Century Mobler, Berkeley, CA
If you’re spill-prone like myself, the geometric floral tiles decorating these rosewood nesting tables prove both functional and beautiful. The tile’s distressed blue glaze also radiates true bohemian flair.
Silk Rug — Doris Leslie Blau, New York, NY
Though technically not an antique, this silvery silk rug is a readymade heirloom. With a smooth pile that subtly shifts hues in the light, this contemporary rug is giving us blue lagoon reveries.
Sputnik Chandelier — Bernd Goeckler, New York, NY
Something sparkly is required for a fantasy living room, so why not this 1950s Italian Sputnik chandelier? With slender, polished brass arms, this fixture adds the final touch.
