Illegal Shopping

on 1stDibs again. Some beauties:

Art Deco vase, designed by Willy Wuilleumier for French brand Marcel Guillard, circa 1927. Love the colors - definitely a statement piece for a table or credenza. 

American-made T.A. Greene for Monteverdi Young brass chandelier/pendant from the 1950s - love it! In a bathroom with a romantic wallpaper? So moody!

Mid-Century American brass firescreen - visually, an art piece while also being functional. 
1980s Henri Fernandez octopus coffee table - if you haven't noticed, I love statement pieces. One day, in our next house, I plan to design each room around one special piece - furniture, art, what have you. This coffee table is just that kind of piece. If you could work around the glass, how whimsical is this for a children's playroom? Or a beachside home? Maybe replace the top with a blue-veined natural stone, such as marble. All of your guests will take notice. Over the top, and I like it.
20th Century French Louis XVI style lantern - in an large entry way - wow. Or a cathedral-ceilinged bedroom with a canopy bed? Yes!

I barely made it past the first page this week. So many fun things!
