Ebay Scavenger

Espresso leather Design Within Reach club chair. The first-time seller has posted a poorly-lit photo, but this appears to be the DWR Portola armchair in chocolate. It retails for $1898, but it's going for $1100 here.

Union Jack and Queen cameo pillows. There's just one word for these pillows: cheeky. Home Republic's eBay store is worth a look for its Gothic plastic candy dishes, Danish blue Sausalito plates, and anemone votive holders.

Iron grate. Nostalgia1947 has an extensive collection of salvaged ironwork. I particularly like a small grate that would work as a firescreen. With a black metal shelf attached, this piece would add charm to an entryway. I can easily picture it in a San Francisco rowhouse.

Atomic Age coffee table. Coffee tables are too often utilitarian and dull. This one has a great sculptural quality and the inexplicable zing that many of the best mid-century pieces share.
