Buy Antiques and Update Buy classic pieces with good bones and reupholster them. Rate My Space just-beachy purchased an antique Duncan Phyfe sofa on Craigslist and reupholstered it in an oyster chenille fabric.
A vintage type, swirly, patchworked armchair. Well, don't mind if I do!! (I adore all the sofas, chaises and chairs in the post, actually. I just liked the blue with the black in this one a liiiiittle bit more.)
