Today's 5 Most Unique Furniture Finds on Craigslist

On Craigslist Clearance, Curbed searches through the classified advertisements website, Craigslist, in order to find the most unique, delightful, strange, and opportune furniture finds, from award-winning designer chairs to antique radios-turned-jewelry boxes. Only Craigslist listings located in the DMV area are considered.

Panton-Designed Children's Chair
$130
Spanning 5.5'' by 3.25'', you can purchase this white polypropylene chair, designed by one of Demnmark's most influential 20th-century furniture and interior designers Verner Panton. A set of five of these chairs sells for $225 on the Dwell store and PureModern store or for $1,125 on the YLiving store. The Craigslist seller will only allow those with smoke-free and pet-free homes to purchase this item.


Prismatic Table, Designed by Noguchi
$390
This furniture piece was designed by American artist and landscape architect Isamu Noguchi for the Vitra Design Museum. The hexagonal table is made of folded sheet aluminum and spans 14.75'' by 16.25''. In January 2010, Dwell reported that the worth of this piece is $630. There are some slight scratches on the surface of this piece.


Vintage Brass and Glass Tea Cart/Table
$175 (or best)
This potential conversation piece has no wheels, unfortunately, so it's more of a table than a cart. According to the listing, this piece is knee height. Other tea carts up for grabs can vary in price from around $35 to over $3,000.


Antique 1927 RCA Radiola 16 Radio Repurposed as a Jewelry Box
$200
Want a unique wooden case to store your keys or jewelry? This radio dates back to 1927 as RCA's first and last model specifically designed to operate with 201A tubes, according to the Museum of Broadcasting. This box measures 8'' by 16''.


Rug Warehouse Liquidation Sale
Varies
A Sterling, Virginia rug store called Treasure Rugs is selling all of the stock rugs for discounted prices in its warehouse located at the corner of Nokes Boulevard and Cascade Parkway. These rugs vary from hand-knotted to power-loomed, from wool to silk, and from around $20 to almost $400. According to the listing, the rugs typically sell two to three times more on the business' online and retail stores. For those interested in purchasing more than two rugs, additional discounts are available. Not sure what a "rug expert" is, but the listing reports that one will be available on site.
