Treasure hunt

In perusing around blogland, it seems that many people are on a search for one particular piece of furniture - that perfect piece that has all the individual aspects of design and function personal to the searcher. I am always looking for something, and I have to admit that it changes often. Perhaps I am still defining my taste (in which case I probably should really think carefully about some of the big purchases I am ever so tempted to make!). I love the idea of having a single item that is the epitome of perfection and being able to search around the world for it if necessary. Wouldn't the feeling be incredible when it was actually found?

Truth is, I don't have that kind of patience. Either that or I have incredible luck. I decided to search for a loom and found one almost immediately. And the same with the letterpress. Craigslist and I get along well. But that dear friend has not come through for me (immediately) on my newest quest: the Perfect Buffet.

My perfect buffet actually comes in a few different completely different shapes and sizes. First is what I am going to call 1950s Dutch, although I actually haven't the slightest idea if that is correct:

Its a beaut. Its actually $6800 worth of beauty, which I am sure it is completely worth, but which is also so out of my price range.

Buffet #2 would be thrilling to find. It is inspired by the one in the background in this amazing apartment. What got me with that one is the old wood - do you think I could find an antique workbench hidden and forgotten in the back of someone's barn? That would be ideal.

These are a couple I found on, nice but missing... something...

I like the last one with the glass doors the best! I too seem to search for this same kind of furniture at yard sails and antique shops but have yet to find it. :)

I think I like this last one best too. Unfortunately, other people seem to agree - its sold out!
