In an ideal world, we'd all have hours and hours each week to scour the local estate sales and flea markets for That Perfect Piece. For those who love the salvaged look but can barely salvage minutes, there are people like Andy and Clytie from Ampersand Vintage Modern that do the extensive searching and heavy lifting.
Metal storage cabinets, mod floral chairs, typewriters, Pyrex serveware, charts in German: Ampersand Vintage Modern is a chock full of items that are sure to illicit a "where did you find that?" In their inventory, vintage industrial accents mix with clean-lined mid century classics so effortlessly that I've come to think of Andy & Clytie as design DJs. And like DJs, they take requests. Something sold out that you loved or can't find what you're looking for? They'll search for you. Or just bookmark the site and visit often to see what they discovered — a fun way to spend those salvaged minutes.
