Today's 5 Most Unique Furniture Finds on Craigslist

New, 2 comments

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.

Victorian Canopy Balloon Chair
Honestly, I'm not sure what to say about this chair. It's like interior design meets BDSM. In case any Curbed readers actually find this piece attractive, the listing says that it's brand new.

Penguin Waiter Table
Are you the kind of person who thinks this statue is fun? It's a good conversation piece. And maybe you could actually put some use to it and put something on the table. You can also put some grilling tools on the statue's small hooks. According to the listing, the plastic penguin measures 34 inches high and 20 inches wide.

Antique Quarter Sawn Tiger Oak Empire Display Curio Case
This curio cabinet dates back to the early 1900s. The case measures 63.25 inches tall, 46 inches wide, and 18 inches deep, according to the listing.

Haitian Hand Carved Coffee Table
Decked out in Haitian designs, this hand carved coffee table is up for grabs on Craigslist. For a closer look at the designs on the table, be sure to check out the listing's photo gallery.

Cow Coat Hooks
Some buyers might find these cow coat hooks tacky, but there are others who might find them downright adorable. The listing indicates that the piece spans roughly "21.5 wide," without indicating if that is referring to inches or feet, but it's probably inches. No promises, though.

Repurposed WWII Salvaged Shipping Container
Roughly one hour away from Washington, D.C., you can find this coffee table, made from a salvaged WWII shipping container. The stenciling on the 30 inch by 48 inch box is original.

11 Framed Illustrations of Vintage Cars
$400 ($40 each)
The listing doesn't offer any details on the illustrations, unfortunately. The photos show that some of the illustrations include cars that date back to the 1920s and 1930s.

Artemide Talo 21 Mini Halogen Wall Sconce
Spanning 8.25 inches by 4 inches, this wall sconce is on the Craigslist market for $150, about $150 less than its retail value. The wall supporting is made out of steel.
