So I picked up this same 48″ giltwood Italian mirror from Kijiji Montreal last week (yes, it’s tacky, & gaudy, & sunburst mirrors are sooooo over, but I still like it! Plus it’s eminently re-sellable should I tire of my Versailles moment. I’m trying to convince my husband to place it somewhere unexpected, instead of over the mantel.)
But I karmically exhausted my online classifieds finds with that score, until today. Hope some of these vintage furniture picks find their way into your home!
James Mont Style Ming Chairs
Pair of black lacquered Ming or horseshoe armchairs, with brass trim. Look like knock-offs of James Mont’s famous chinoiserie chairs, from the ’70s. Here’s another pair, with similar details to today’s find. If these are by Century Furniture, a total steal.
Montreal. $125 for pair. APPEAL
I quite like the details on this credenza, and the seller seems generously minded.
Montreal. Inquire for price.
Vintage Sliding Door Sideboard
Another retro piece. Probably not the best quality, and those colonial legs are just wrong, but the price can’t be beat.
Saint-Denis-sur-Richelieu. $30. DEAL
Huge Oak Bookcase
Look at the scale of this bookcase – it’s 8′ tall by 5′ wide, all in dark stained solid oak, with nicely carved trim.
Montreal. $1350 or best offer. FOR REAL?
Like both the tone of the wood, and shape of the legs.
Charlemagne. $125. APPEAL
Ebony Console Table
This has all the hallmarks of a Victorian ebony wood table – maybe even Anglo Indian? If it checks out in person, snatch it up and get the leg repaired.
Montreal. $150. Hinges on age.
Vintage Deco Sofa
Interesting feminine scalloped back on this sofa – get it reupholstered?
Montreal. $70 obo. APPEAL
Lane Coffee Tables
1950s or ’60s Lane Furniture coffee table + accent table, in their chippendale style. Spotted the Lane mark in one of the photos – seller omits the keyword.
St-Mathieu-de-LaPrairie. $225. APPEAL
Child’s Play Table
Antique, solid wood child sized table, with drop down leaves.
Verchères. $130. APPEAL
Cowhide Retro Sofa
The Charlie Brown of sofas? Bonus points if the cowhide is actually cowhide!
Montreal. $150. APPEAL
Retro Telephone Table
Cute yellow & turquoise combo!
Rosemère. $65. DEAL
Banana Leaf Chairs
Set of four, originally from Pier I.
Montreal. $150. APPEAL

Four Art Deco wood dining chairs, in good shape. Seller has a matching buffet too.

Montreal. $75. APPEAL
Montreal. $45. DEAL
Mercier. $65. APPEAL

Too bad those coffee tables above weren’t the mod white babies in this vintage Lane ad!
