Unlike new furnishings, vintage furniture is already broken in, has had time to establish its pedigree, and is almost always house trained. Save on décor obedience training with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of furniture and home accessories at Cabell House Consignments for the Home.
An upscale consignment boutique nestled in Carytown, Cabell House sells brand-name furniture, antiques, accessories, and oriental rugs on consignment. The staff inspects all preowned items for structural flaws and resonant voodoo curses before accepting them for sale. On the showroom floor, fully arranged and accessorized room displays let shoppers observe French dining tables and antique chaise lounges in their natural habitat, existing symbiotically with tastefully appointed lamps ($65¬–$200). Matouk bed linens ($75–$500) and Vera Bradley dinnerware (starting at $15) add elegance to any domicile, and a pile of antique beer cans (starting at $10 each) makes newly pledged fraternity brothers feel at home. Antiques enthusiasts in search of a specific piece can add their contact information to Cabell House's wish-list book and be among the first notified when an Egyptian third-dynasty Formica dinette becomes available.
