From a Knoll Chair to a Chinoiserie Elephant, Here Are Today's Most Unique Furniture Finds on Craigslist

New, 1 comment

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.

Tiffany Sofa
The price of this sofa might seem pretty out there, but identical sofas are often hundreds of dollars more expensive, as can be seen on Houzz. The sofa was upholstered in cashmere and comes with "mold injected foam." The current owner also has a red and grey three-piece sofa set from the Tiffany collection. This listing measures 28'' x 81'' x 31'' and weighs 106.4 pounds.

Brass Life Size Deer Sculptures
Talk about conversation pieces. Not only can you own stag sculptures, but you can own them measuring 3.5'' x 11'' x 35''. They're in good condition, save for one, which has a crack in its tail. Be sure to understand that shipping might be pricey for these sculptures. The listing indicates that they're very heavy, though doesn't specify how much each one weighs. If the price is a little too much for you, these similar brass deer sculptures are asking $3,600 on 1stdibs.

Chinoiserie Elephant Stool
Need a stool? Love elephants? Have a thing for Chinese motifs? This piece might be for you. According to the listing, it measures 19'' x 9.5'' x 17''. The price is also pretty good. A replica of this stool is available on Chairish for $325. A variety of other elephant stools are available on Ebay for lower prices, though.

Bathroom Signs
In case your guests have a hard time finding the bathroom or even the bathroom assigned to their gender, these signs should be helpful. They measure 5'' x 7'' and come with "hanging materials." If you think $25 might be a bit much for these signs, the current owner has specified in the listing that the "price is firm."

Pair of Knoll Saarinen Style Tulip Petal Chairs
Once again, Knoll makes an appearance on Craigslist Clearance. These tulip petal chairs measure 24.5'' x 17'' x 33.25'' and are in excellent condition. For a better price, you can find these exact chairs on Etsy for $950 or Chairish for $870.

Red Bull Gas Station Fridge
For some reason, the listing describes this Red Bull gas station fridge as "VERY RARE," but you can easily find one on Ebay, though maybe with a different shape. The office that this was previously located in apparently loved this piece, but "the office has just grown out of it." If you think you can get in a long lasting relationship with this fridge, the condition is like new.

Footlocker/Ammo Box
Other ammo boxes can go as low as $9.99, but they probably won't be as rusty or vintage as this listing. Despite its rugged appearance, the current owner described it as being in excellent condition.
