From museum-worthy vintage furniture to kitschy gallery-wall gold, estate sales are a design nerd's dream. That said, they're few and far between, and when you are so lucky to stumble across one, those Eames chairs are spoken for faster than you can say "mid-century modern."
That's where Everything But The House comes in. An online auction site, EBTH deploys buyers to estate sales nationwide, combs through the lots and auctions off items —starting at $1, whether it’s a signed Warhol or a charming teapot — to lucky bidders.
“If a family is moving or downsizing or modernizing, we can help them reach a larger audience,” says marketing and partnerships advisor Andrea Stanford.
“For buyers, there’s something really special about seeing these collections and lives that were curated, about finding a great new piece that has a history.”
With spring — aka moving season — in full swing, we asked Stanford for what old-school decor trends are finding new life this year.
