1st Dibs - things for the home

Okay, so this is a little off topic, but I love browsing the furniture and other items on 1st Dibs too, so many gorgeous things!!

Demilune sectional velvet sofa (I am obsessed with velvet furniture!) circa 1950, $16,500 from Aero:

These are truly DIVINE. I want them. Bad. Opaline Barber/ Cologne bottles, circa 1930 by Portieux Vallerysthal, $600 for the pair from LA Moderne:

These are a little freaky, but amazing. Brass wire sconces, $6,205 for the pair, from Dana John:

We love mini-antlers like these, providing they are antiques, and this set is adorable and reasonably priced too. Decorative Horn Plaques, $145, Jefferson West Inc.:

I love porcelain glove molds, and have had them on my list list for a while now. These ones are circa 1920 and from Germany. Fairly reasonably priced at $100 for the set too, from Mary Ann Jones:

I had a faded sort of purple blue sofa exactly like this back home, wish I could afford to have it brought over here. This lime green version is lovely. Circa 1950's, $4,250 from Assemblage:

My Aunt (a set decorator with amazing taste) has a polar bear very similar to this but in marble, and I've lusted after it for years. This cast concrete version is also lovely though a little more rustic. It's from the 1940's - 50's and is $500 from Paul Marra Design:

This cradle is amazing, it's a limited edition Piero Fornasetti, 1999, and is $8,000 from
Dragonettte Limited. I shouldn't say, but surely very easy/ cheap to copy, no?

I love the different shades of blue in this italian chandelier from the 30's. It's $2,400 from Fernworks Antiques:

I love geodes and these amethyst geode bookends are really lovely. Circa 1950, $700 from Fernwood Antiques:

Collection of colored seltzer bottles from Brazil, circa 1900, price upon request, from Voila: Art for the Modern Eye:

Stunning Flavio Poli for Seguso Sommerso Vase. 1950's, Italian, $2,200 from Modern One:

I LOVE these "sunburst" sconces. Italian, 1960's, $2,400 from Emmerson Troop Inc.:

I love lamps. If I had my way (and money was no object) I would have a house FULL of lamps. This one is Flavio Poli for Seguso Murano Lamps, Italian, from the 1950's, and is $5,500 (for the pair) from

I first spotted this barnacle and glass sculpture almost a year ago and was quite fascinated by it. It's by Robert Hooper for the "House of Mermaid" in Laguna Beach. 1980's, $4,900 from Adesso:

This is my dream sofa. I love love LOVE this sofa. It's a 19th century English roll arm button-back Chesterfield sofa in red velvet. Price upon request from
Yew Tree House:

This is a great spanish iron lantern. Apparently it was bought from the Hearst Estate in the 1950's by JW Bullock of Bullock Department stores in LA. In storage for 50 years then refurbished and rewired. Sold. From Outside Downtown:

Orrefors hand blown glass candleholders, circa 1960's, $1,400 from Rewire:
