Bentwood Eames-era chair. First the bad news: I'm not at all convinced that this chair is Thonet. It’s unmarked. And it’s sorely in need of reupholstery - the sad brass tacks need to go! The good news is that the design is highly original, and the price is low.

Mod chrome floor lamp. This is a statement lamp, no question. If your décor is minimalist and you need a bit of flash, look no further.

Buddha-head bookends. These are a bit of a departure for me, style-wise, and in the wrong environment, they could certainly read as kitsch. I can’t help picturing them in a James Bond-villain library, however. They aren’t expensive, and they pack a lot of glamour.

Seventies Arc lamp. There’s a lot to like about this Arc lamp, although I’d prefer a more sturdy-looking base. The marbled ochre shade has the look of Murano about it, and the earthy color provides a nice contrast to the chrome arm. It’s striking even in an empty room, so just imagine how much style it would lend to your living room. -Molly S.
