Factory 20: Vintage Heaven!

Hello everyone! How are you today? I was just reading the House Doctor blog and found this great store based out of Virginia called Factory 20 that I must share with you. It’s my new obsession and I wish it were nearby because I’d go a little bonkers shopping there. I noticed though that they schedule deliveries to NYC every so often, but it’s still a little far for me here in Germany! Ha!

Factory 20

(I must have this tressel table for a mini cocktail bar. Imagine it with lovely etched vintage glasses, mismatched, and a few pretty bottles of alcohol (like Bombay Sapphire because it has the best color and bottle ever – I barely drink but like it around for guests) along with a little bowl of fresh lemons and some pretty fabric cocktail napkins in a variety of vintage patterns?)

But I shouldn’t cry about Factory 20 being in Virginia with me in Germany because locally we have the wonderfully curated shop ComingHome (I photographed one of their showrooms here awhile back). Plus, I’m close to the Netherlands and Belgium (I was just there a few weeks ago in fact) so I simply need to spend a weekend flea marketing and see what I can find. I’m currently looking for a vintage Dutch dropleaf gateleg table in white… And I want a long vintage work table for my new office this one from Belgium — I love the drawers and the wavy skirt! I also want a tressel table to use as a mini bar — just like the one shown above. I’m sad that Factory 20 is in America because they are sitting on three tables that I would buy right now if they were local. Wahhh. Oh well, I guess my American readers are in luck today!

I love these minty green chairs and can totally see them paired with a zinc top round cafe table for a kitchen.

Isn’t she darling? She’d look great in a kitchen nook with those minty green chairs shown above!

    Factory 20 looks like an amazing place! I wish I was a little closer. And you’re so right about the Bombay Sapphire bottle. The first time I bought it was just because I liked the bottle so much!

    I am in love. Guess I am a sucker for this look. Must be why I love the well worn look of sea glass. It just get better with age! Yum!

    I saw this on House Doctor too! LOVE IT. Then realized the photos look familiar. I had just stumbled on Modern50 over the weekend while researching a vintage coat rack I bought last week at a thrift store. And Factory20 looks just like Modern50. Turns out the owners of both sites work together in business….so the photography is similar.

    Here’s my post on Modern50. LOVE the photography on the sites. LOVE it. (wanna hug it and keep it as a pet – that’s how much I love it).

    LOVE that podium table, as well as a lot of other furniture on their site. It’s too bad that I’m on the opposite coast!

    Yeah, I love looking at factory 20′s website too, but their items are beyond expensive for what they are. Some of the smaller things can be found on ebay for less than a quarter of what they’re asking for them. I would think that if you really like a larger furniture piece you could also find it elsewhere for much, much less. They’re obviously really trying to cash in on the current vintage industrial look, just like all the mid century resellers out there who ask an arm and a leg for a beat up credenza. The site is definitely eye candy, but look elsewhere for better deals.

    Very overpriced items! I would seriously consider doing your home-work before laying down a penny. I can speak from personal experience that these items are purchased at flea markets and then increased in price by 5 fold. If you like the shabby chic look, then I guess it’s interesting to peruse their website. They have the charm in person, but then I found myself questioning the inflated prices.
