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 Los Angeles-based amateur designer Tara Weseloh who found a mixed bag of goodies from Chairish. Documenting her home renovation progress on her Instagram, Weseloh scored a burl wood dining table, a Mid-Century campaign style headboard, and a post-modern waterfall nightstand. Read on to learn about her search and explore all Chairish has to offer right here.
What Chairish items did you buy that you’d like to share a story about?
I have three different Chairish items in my newly renovated bedroom that I absolutely adore—a ‘70s campaign style headboard, an ‘80s postmodern waterfall nightstand, and an ‘80s waterfall bench! I have a few other Chairish items (one even on the way).
In what room did you use it?
In a few words, how would you describe your interior design style?
California Mid-Century Modern
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?
Chairish’s platform does an excellent job at curating inventory. The site makes it easy to hone in on any given style, regardless of what someone’s vision for a room might be. I was able to find exactly what I was looking for just by searching keywords and using the filter options to narrow down the colors and style.
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?
I started searching with a vision in mind but left room for inspiration!
Why do you love shopping vintage? And how does sustainability factor into your choices of new products vs. vintage finds?
Vintage objects provide a snapshot of the history of the time from which they came. Beyond that, it’s an opportunity to support small businesses that feel the same way. Feels like a win-win to me!
Are there any dream vintage or antique pieces you wish you could have?
I’ve lusted over the original Caprani floor lamps from the 1970s for years!
