search word jackpot

I have this fantasy that I will open up Craigslist one day and everything that I've ever looked for will pop up within one mile of me, all for great prices of course.  Oh and they can all be delivered to my doorstep. 
 
Right now at the top of my Craigslist search is a set of pretty brass (or any metal really, but brass is tops) chairs.  By set, I'd like 2 arm chairs OR 6 dining chairs.  Also, it would be like picking the Power Ball number if they were covered in some delicious, perfect condition velvet or leather.  But I wont push it, those changes I can make with a trip to the upholsterer, I just want the chairs.    I have no place for these chairs, but if I found them I'm sure I could find space.
 
Look how pretty they look!

 Those floors?!?  I would LOVE for floors like those! Not to mention those windows, the shelves, and the blue doorway!

I have definitely been looking for the same things on the Boston Craigslist but don't want a whole set...if I come across anything like it I will send it your way :)

Funny, I scour Craigslist for anything brass or marble too!!!! Love all the chairs and hope that 'genie of good coincidence 'yours shows up to grant your wish!

You'll find one, just be patient! I scored six chrome cantilever chairs in mint condition including upholstery. Probably my fave score so far.

That is a great fantasy. And some pretty awesome chairs, too.

Here is set of 4 in Charlotte. Interesting lines, but reupholstering would be a must.

Yes, I adore them! My parents have six leather and chrome Brnos at their dining table, I covet them every time I'm at their house.

Wow!I was also thinking of a metal chair for our dinning... Just have to pick the best one! Good luck to me! Great post by the way.

Gorgeous - love the ones in the first image because they look so comfortable. The ones with the metal arms...not so much. I worry those would hurt if my arms were on them for very long.

I also have the same craigslist dream -- mine always involves a brass bar cart :)

ps: hope you can make that boston bloggers meet up -- I'd love to see you!

And in my dream you find out that it is actually not near you, but near me. So you email me the listing and I say "thanks Lindsay!"

I'm just obsessed with that blue doorway! But really all the pictures and all the chairs are fabulous. Thanks so much for sharing!
