We spend our days scouring the Marketplace for gems you can't find anywhere else. Buy and sell with over 200,000 neighbors that love quality home furnishings and good design.

While some vintage collectors may stumble across a random assortment of goodies, you've got to appreciate someone who can consistently stick to a solid theme. Marketplace seller Anna Jeglova runs the mecca for anyone who appreciates industrial vintage style, often sourcing items with some seriously cool background stories.

Classic Wood Furniture

Let's start with some solid furniture pieces from Anna's collection. Salvaged by a now-retired science teacher, this antique chest of drawers ($50) is a great choice for someone looking to get crafty. A little paint, refinishing and the right eye = you've got a gem on your hands. No need to bust out the DIY tools with this desk though; this warm mid-century modern piece ($350) has been sanded, oiled, and repainted with bold blue legs.

Industrial Home Goods

Achieving a cohesive industrial look in your home means mixing in some cool metallic accents. Once a humble vintage suitcase, this upcycled side table ($300) is a guaranteed attention grabber, with a nice balance of textures. For unexpected storage, this large vintage cabinet ($375) is perfect for holding small objects and other clutter. And for a more subtle touch of chrome with a designer reputation, you can't beat a classic Herman Miller chair ($85).

Rare Repurposing

Now for the accent pieces that are truly one-of-a-kind. When you combine a vintage Brooklyn-made mic stand with an aluminum shade, you get a scalable floor lamp ($250) perfect for any industrial home. Something that's commonplace while in your car instantly becomes standout in your house, like this bright vintage winding road sign ($120). As for seating, not every set needs to be so matchy-matchy; formerly a tractor seat, this repurposed stool ($120) brings some welcome "grit" into your space. But the ultimate upcycle definitely goes to the floor lamp pictured above ($1,500): it's a pricey buy, but can you believe that a 1940's hair dryer could be remade into such a cool piece?
