Bare walls have plenty of advantages: ample surface area for finger painting, an absence of disapproving Churchill posters, and no mirrors reminding you that your hair is on fire. Fill rooms' middles with furnishings so you can keep walls clear with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $100 worth of gently used, upscale vintage and modern furniture at eddigan’s, located in Medford, an eight-minute drive from Boston.
Named for owner Paul Russo’s two dogs, Eddie and Finnegan, eddigan’s stocks upscale used furniture, antiques, and modern décor to fill empty rooms. Green thumbs can cultivate prize-winning couch potatoes on a modern leather recliner and matching ottoman ($125), while paranoid patrons can scour vintage paisley sofas and matching throw pillows for secret hieroglyphs and camouflaged CIA transmitters ($600). Decorate spaces by perusing eddigan’s supply of delicate glassware and pottery ($100–$500), still-life paintings, blown-glass bowls, and work by local artisans. A refuge for rescued cockatiels, eddigan’s is filled with the cheerful chatter of caged zebra finches, orange weavers, and society finches, which are all cloistered in an aviary, where they spend each night plotting new ways to take over Poughkeepsie.
