8 Pieces We’re Coveting from Design Market

If you’re like me and suffer from a minor case of Golden Age Syndrome—the naïve and romantic tendency that has me constantly daydreaming about living in a past era—vintage shopping is the way to go. Whether it’s hunting down a classic quilted CHANEL purse with the interlocked C’s, or an Art Deco chaise lounge, the options for bringing the past into our lives are endless.

When Lionel Abadia was on the hunt for a vintage Charles and Ray Eames piece, the idea struck him to create an online retailer where vintage lovers like him could easily locate and purchase pieces from the past. Thus, Design Market was born. The online marketplace offers a curated selection of iconic, bespoke pieces of furniture and décor from the 20th century. The majority of the retailer’s offerings are mid-century innovations—from the ‘50s to the ‘70s—and are all appraised by a professional, ensuring each piece you invest in is authentic.

For your viewing pleasure, we’ve rounded up 8 pieces that we’re coveting from Design Market. Happy shopping!
