Art Deco valet stand with rotating ashtray. Two German sellers, Sita587 and hoody7, have cornered the market on French Art Deco. They frequently offer these chrome pieces — smokers’ tables, umbrella holders, and valet stands. This one sports a tiny matchbox holder.

Ebonized Harvey Probber chest. I get a little tired of mid-century credenzas, but this one feels contemporary. You could store a television behind the tambour doors. This would make an equally good buffet in a dining room, although you might want to add a shelf for china and glassware.

Armless tufted settee. This piece has been reupholstered in a pearly blue silk. This could add seating — and a touch of glamour — to a living room.

Heath Ceramics mug set. These natural clay mugs have a speckled exterior, and the interior is a surprisingly vivid robin’s-egg blue. The handle design is unusual, and the overall effect is earthy yet modern.
