Cool Stuff: Factory 20

I discovered Factory 20 this morning via Another Shade of Grey (which -- yay! -- is back and going strong after a mysterious and much-lamented 7-month absence from the blogosphere). This store is most definitely getting bookmarked.

Located in Sterling, Virginia, Factory 20 is a brick-and-mortar boutique and online shop with an incredible selection of vintage furniture, lighting, objects, and art. Midcentury minimalist items are mixed in with gorgeously timeworn primitive pieces and vintage industrial wares (a current all-consuming obsession of mine). Prices aren't bargain-basement, but aren't insane, either -- and some items are downright reasonable. The shop also offers worldwide shipping.

My Factory 20 faves (sorry about the volume here -- I'm just going gaga for practically everything in stock):

Vintage Basic Flat File, $295

Industrial Modern Wine Racks, $465 each

Paul McCobb Iron Side Chairs, $225 for the pair

Paul McCobb Brass Shelving Unit, $1,285

Streamline Wall Mount Desk, $265

Vintage Walnut Gothic Chairs, $425 for eight

Russel Wright Floor Lamps, $1,435 for the pair

Vintage Exit Sign Table Lamp, $135

1960s Artisan Pottery Lamp, $265

French Articulating Floor Lamp, $395

Primitive Iron Floor Candelabra, $265

Industrial Metal Trashcan, $125

Vintage Iron Firewood Stands, $250 and $350

Vintage Buoys, $55 each

Vintage Rand McNally School Maps, $50 and up

1970s Cuban Film Posters, inquire for selection and prices

Vintage Russian Modernist Silkscreen Print, $145

That flat file drawer! James has been looking for something like that to store our ever-growing art collection. And this one is more than awesome.

Love that Russian print too. And thanks to Lynne Rutter for the totally awesome link. I am just a little bit obsessed with Russia, especially Soviet Russia.
