Welcome to #FoundAndChairished, our weekly series where we talk to designers about an incredible piece they found on Chairish. Be on the lookout for new #FoundAndChairished stories here on the blog as well as on our Instagram account.

This week, we’re speaking with Memphis-based designer Missy Steffens who scored a comfy, chocolate brown lounge chair and a few ornaments from Chairish. Always on the lookout for unique, vintage gems, Steffens immediately fell in love with her finds. Read on to learn more about her search and what she loves about secondhand knick knacks.

What Chairish item did you buy that you’d like to share a story about? 

Accessories plus a chair

In what room did you use it in? 

Living room

In a few words, how would you describe your interior design style?

Classic and collected

How did you find the item you bought on Chairish, and what made you choose it? Did you have a specific search or were you just browsing?

I’m always looking for old boxes, creamware, and brass objects. The chair was the icing on the cake.

Did you know where you’d put this piece in your home when you bought it, or did you figure you’d find the right spot?

Both. With accessories, if I love it, I’ll buy it immediately and find a spot for it at some point. But, when looking for a chair, I have to be more specific. 

Why do you love shopping vintage? And how does sustainability factor into your choices of new products vs. vintage finds?

Vintage gives immediate patina and depth—and always has a story.

Are there any dream vintage or antique pieces you wish you could have?

Yes, of course! I am always looking for something I have not seen before…
