My fantasy 1st dibs shopping experience...

(I adore this little french bathtub. It would look so sweet in my future laundry room. I don't know what I'd use it for - perhaps wash the dogs lol)(I've always fantasized with the idea of having beautifully detailed ironwork across my windows or Juliet balconies just like those in France - It's my favourite French architectural element)

(This painted settee is stunning. It would be my own little piece of Versailles)



(Again I've always dreamed of owning an antique French bakers table - someday I will!)


(Can't forget a sweet wire bird cage)



(Oh how I love chandeliers - especially antique with loads of patina)



(I couldn't resist these french scrolly floor lamps - Oh so gorgeous!)




(How fabulous is this concierge chair? I've never seen one for real before - I love it!)



(These pink apothecary jars are just too darling and would look perfect in my bathroom)


(I'll definately have this stuning blue commode for my entry foyer thank you!)





(Finally, my house wouldn't be complete without this heavenly old rusty french bistro style garden set for my future front courtyard complete with water feature and koi)



Have you ever visited the 1stdibs.com site? Nate Berkus from The Oprah show recommends it all the time. I'm sure most of you have but just incase some of you haven't it's where antique, mid-century modern and vintage furniture and lighting dealers from all over the world come together to one incredible online fleamarket and sell their unique wares.
Of course living in Australia as well as a humble working class lifestyle means any actual purchases for me are only a dream so in that case, wow did I spend a fortune last night lol.
We are slowly renovating our home therefore I am constantly looking for unique items to furnish it. I love pieces that will create a conversation about what it is, where it came from and why I love it so much.
If I had a platinum credit card handy, these are just some of the exquisite pieces I found for sale on the site. Head on over and have some fun. They have countless dealers and thousands of treasures. You'll love it!
