the new “curated”?

From the captions on this post on the otherwise excellent design files:

➕ Original Danish wall sconces and rattan stools were sourced privately by Tanya

➕ Original 60s Danish sconce lights purchased privately off Ebay and rewired by Peter

➕ And the chairs were sourced privately by Tanya and Peter

➕ And the wire chair, vintage speakers and Danish sideboard were all sourced privately

I’m totally adopting this phrase into the lexicon – “behold this delicious sandwich which I sourced privately“. “yes, these are great socks – they were sourced privately.

    Oh man I thought “curated” was bad, hehe đŸ™‚

    Haha! yes, it sounds so much more refined than just “bought” or “found in an op shop” Or, heaven forbid, Target

    Pleased to note that they have privately sourced two Ercol chairs which are the same as the ones I privately sourced from eBay.

  4. pretty sure my parents had that sideboard…

    • also, I have found that blog notoriously thin skinned to criticism and much as I love the content and some of the discoveries along the way, I have a bad taste in my mouth about their breathless spruiking of Belle Gibson before her fall from grace. I notice that content just disappeared without a word of an apology for being one of her enablers.

        Oh yuck! I totally missed the Belle Gibson thing. I really only started reading there after you bought your Leila Jeffreys.

        I find quite a lot of the breathless spruiking on there pretty off putting.

      I have just the space for a mid century sideboard, but anything vintage is ludicrously expensive here. I keep seeing bargain
      sideboards on eBay and discovering they are located in Melbourne which seems to be the home of cheap retro furniture.
