Chairish has been a constant source of inspiration and a good resource for vintage for me over the years… I actually used to have my own Chairish shop back in the day when I was collecting lots of vintage furniture. While those days are behind me, it’s still a design website I frequent, follow, and gain creativity from. Lately, I’ve spent a LOT of time on Chairish browsing for artwork (as I mentioned in this post), so I’ve been starring all of the cool furniture & decor that has crossed my path. I thought it would be fun to share 20 finds that caught my attention while browsing last weekend- of all styles & price points. Click through to see what I liked and saved!
We’ll get right to the vintage roundup… I love how objects can spark an idea for an entire room or design plan! I often design an entire space around a vintage or antique find.

I’d love to hear your favorites from the roundup! It’s really tough for me to choose because I was gawking at many of these for quite awhile, imagining where they could exist in my house. I suppose if I had to play favorites, I choose… #5- I could see those cushions blending beautifully in our living room on the blue mohair sofa. Of course #7 is also high on my list- what’s not to love about sculptural intaglios in the form of a gallery wall? The vintage french plaster planter (#12) is also oddly appealing. If you’re looking for a horse similar to my own, #13 is a no brainer and much less expensive than mine. You know I love a bouillotte lamp (#15), and since I’ve been on a major art kick- I’m seriously contemplating that pretty impressionistic piece (#19).
Did you know you can also discover new designers via Chairish? I just realized this over the weekend. They have a handy design directory packed full of portfolios and inspiration, if you’re looking to discover talented professionals in the interior or architecture industries.
While Chairish isn’t normally a place I would look for design articles, blog posts, and interior news- I also discovered they do a good job keeping up with their “ideas tab”. It includes all of the aforementioned topics and I wasted a fair amount of time reading and browsing. Clearly it had been too long since I’d last visited their site. Anyway, I just wanted to share in case you’re looking for fresh inspiration or are also actively searching for vintage… Chairish is definitely back on my radar and bookmarked.
While Facebook Marketplace, local shops, and thrift stores are easy, fun, and a bit more affordable for antique and vintage finds, Chairish is a great resource that can help you cast your net a bit wider… especially if you’re looking for something specific and are willing to spend a bit more on something exact. I also feel like it’s not as expensive as 1st dibs and is a good middle point that is fuss-free in comparison to FBMP. I’d love to hear your other favorite online resources for vintage and antiques. Of course I also frequent Etsy & Ebay.
