What periods or aesthetics were you thinking of?
Genuine antiques can often be cheaper than most people think.
I wish I knew what I were looking for...
How much cheaper than people think? And requiring how much extra effort to locate? Where would be a good place to begin? For instance, I really dig this chair as a whimsical accent:
edit: various other modes I think I like are Art Deco, traditional SE Asian/S Pacific, and more modern P Starke/Branchini type aesthetics. Is that coherent at all? I'm basically starting from scratch; I have a nylon folding chair as the second easy chair in my living room.
