Corbusier 3 Color Chaise Lounge for $510: This is an Italian-made knock-off, but still a sexy beast. It would be deliciously unexpected basking in a sunny, plant-filled bay window.

Rare Herman Miller Drafting Stool Shell Chair for $305: Shell chairs are becoming a little ubiquitous, but this one seems special. A Charles and Ray Eames design for Herman Miller, it has a green vinyl seat atop white plastic, giving it a two-tone, scuptural quality. It "swivels, rolls, and raises," turning a bar-height table or counter into a work space.

Castro Convertible Coffee / Dining Table for $200: Cool-looking and utilitarian, we're fond of these 1950's Castro Convertible tables, which come up on eBay every now and then, oddly mostly in Florida. They usually go for $350+, so this one's still a bargain. Great for small homes: crank the lever to raise the top, and turn your living room into a dining room.
