From antiques and vintage finds to the latest pieces from contemporary designers, there are so many resources showrooms and design centers can offer, but it’s not always accessible for those who don’t live in big cities or don’t have a resale license to shop to-the-trade brands. While I love visiting ADAC here in Atlanta for the latest design inspiration and industry trends (I love seeing how the showrooms rearrange their layouts and vignettes throughout the year), I’m also a digital native and love to have things at the touch of a button and often turn to online resources for project sourcing. When it comes to sourcing antiques and finding designer furniture brands that are typically sold in showrooms, there are some great websites that offer access to secondhand treasures and high-end lines at a discount. Check out my favorite sources below!

This online estate sale listing site has everything from cars to full-blown antiques, and draws an international bidding audience as its sales can be full of surprises. It has reinvented the estate sale process, and takes both large and small lots and lists them with a bidding system that’s similar to eBay. The website has quickly expanded into cities on both coasts, from Boston to Los Angeles. The prices can be fantastic, but shipping is often expensive, so it’s a great resource if you can pick up items if they’re in your area.
The One Kings Lane vintage marketplace has a higher-end selection of traditional and mid-century modern pieces from a crop of top sellers from around the U.S. You’ll find more traditional antiques than vintage or modern pieces, but their growing selection has some unique finds. You can also sort by style, making it easy to find pieces that you will love!
