Decorating & Renovating

Where to find 1920's style furniture?

I've been inspired by Boardwalk Empire, and Chicago... I just love the bedroom furniture from the 1920's, the old vanities, and the dressers... I know i would never be able to afford the real thing...anyone know where i can look for some awesome reproductions?  Or just to get some inspiration?

Thanks!

  • IDK about 1920s but I found a vanity made in the 30s on CL in a really bad condition for $10! Here's the pic:

  • Check antique malls, estate sales and yard sales.  I see a lot of these pieces around my area...and the sad thing is people paint them! eek :(

  • Can you share (link, pic) what you mean by '20s?

    I think of the waterfall furniture that the first poster linked to and that style is very common and very affordable.

  • I would LOVE to do my house in a vintage style. But I agree with a PP try antique stores. When ever I go they have a lot of furniture. Not sure on the decade but it is worth a trip.
    When life hands you lemons, you throw them back in life's face and say "F*ck you, I want some Orange juice, B!tch! Make it happen!"

    Ditto this, depending on your area CL could be a gold mine (my local CL is AWESOME for antiques in the summer, but 100% dead right now)

    Ha Ha.. I painted mine. But I wouldn't have if it were in good condition. Then again, if it were in good condition, it wouldn't have been mine and be on sale for $10.

    Married on 3.20.2004. It took 30 month, 2 failed adoptions and IVF for our first miracle. We have had 9 foster kids since he was born and started the domestic adoption process when he was 10 month old, we had 4 failed matches in that time. After our daughter was born we brought her home and spent 2 weeks fearing we might lose her because of complications that came up. But Praise God all went through and she is ours forever!

  • magnoliahall.com has some vintage reproductions that are gorgeous.  Some of them can be spendy though.

  • I don't know how much you are willing to spend to furnish your house with 1920s furniture but I ran into this website who sells old furnitures. I have no idea about costs. They don't show the price of the furnitures that are labeled sold.
