20 Designers Share Their Best Secondhand Finds of All Time
by Sarah Lyon

“About three to four years ago, I was antiquing with a friend and came across a beautiful piece of milk glass. I had seen many through the years, but this one had my attention. I picked it up, and that piece became the start of a vintage milk glass collection! The next two years were all about milk glass hunting. I read all about vintage milk glass, looked into the difference between the opaque, translucent, and milk white finishes, visited many antique shops, and bought several unique pieces. The collection grew and grew. I display a part of it in my sitting room. I had the back of the built-ins painted in Sherwin-Williams’ Naval (SW-6244) so the milk glass would pop beautifully. Years later, I still love it!” —Designer Maria Loveless, owner of the L&L Design Team

Featured in The Spruce

Maria was recently featured with other franchise owners in Spruce magazine’s 9 Designers Share Their Latest Purchases for Their Own Homes.

Designer Maria Loveless recently purchased two modern Binghamton wide velvet armchairs, which now have a spot in her living room. “I needed a pair of chairs that complemented a white sofa I bought a couple years ago,” Loveless explained in an email. “I looked for a long time. I did not want anything traditional and it had to be the right shade of white!” Loveless appreciates how well the chairs she selected fit within the room. She said, “I love how warm and inviting they are while they bring the perfect modern touch to the space.”
