The Brick House is in the Hizouse

This post comes straight from Hemet California, the land of estate sales and strangely cheap vintage finds.  I’d like to introduce you to the coolest person in Hemet, Morgan from The Brick House.  And let it be known i’m obsessed with this post already:

Thrift Spotting with The Brick House

I spend an inordinate amount of time digging through thrift stores, hunting for some perfect vintage piece that’s under $100 and usually spot something I think could be amazing, but might not currently fit in my space. 

The worst thing about thrift stores is that they are packed full with some of the ugliest crap imaginable. Conversely, the amazing thing about thrift stores is that sometimes, if you’re lucky, they might also hold something incredible at a very thrifty price.

 It’s a crapshoot really. But hey, all thrift stores are regularly getting donations, so you never really know what you might stumble on.


Recently while tootling around at a local Salvation Army I came across this great cane lounge chair. I know cane furniture (or wicker, or rattan for that matter) might tend to make folks think more Golden Girls than super hot home décor, but I’ve always been a fan and think rattan mixes well with more modern spaces. Plus, The Golden Girls rule.

In my head I sort of imagined buying this chair, fixing it up and incorporating it into some sort of 70’s surf shack. Like a laid back and textured vintage den, somewhere you’d want to listen to music and make-out in.

Kind of like this kind of vibe:

Anyways, that very nice cane chair I found was only $20, and this octagonal coffee table I spotted was only $15.

For $35, I thought they could be lovely living room friends.

Mood boarding…

Firstly, I’d have to reupholster the cane chair cushion in a deep navy velvet. Then the ugly too red wood on the coffee table would need to get a dark gray opaque stain rubbed all over it. Yum.

Pair those with a vintage Lafer sofa in a buttery leather and suddenly you’re less Golden Girls and more hot dude with excellent taste sexy time pad.  I’ve seen Brazilian Lafer sofas on Craigslist and at the flea market anywhere form a few hundred to a few thousand bucks. Depends on size, condition, all that kind of stuff.

I’m loving the chunkiness of a jute rug layered under a cowhide and have been obsessed with Fiddle Leaf Fig trees (which seems like the go to tree everywhere I look). Guess what – all three can be found at Ikea, including the PS Vadmal throw.

I found a pair of folding vintage wood chairs for $60 on Craigslist and thought some sort of marble and wood side table would be a great place to throw down a magazine and a drink and chill out on the couch. This Harvey Probber marble table will cost you a pretty penny (especially if the seller knows what it is) but similar tables make the rounds in thrift stores and flea markets and can be found at a pretty reasonable cost. 

For lighting, I was thinking all brass vs. all organic – like Jere vs. Noguchi. Noguchi hanging lamps are fairly inexpensive but a true Jere brass lamp will set you back. Any sort of large-scale glammy type lamp would be amazing, even a big swiveling mid century wall sconce could be pretty perfect .

Throw it all together in front of a white painted fireplace with Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl on the walls and you got a sassy mix of vintage pieces all at a pretty affordable price.

INDEED, Morgan.  Indeed.

Welcome back 70’s, your delicious weirdness has been missed.  Now, to get me to Hemet to buy me some wicker….

And go to The Brick House.  Be prepared to get lost in her insanely awesome DIY’s and really beautiful pictures of her own house….

    I love Morgan she is a thrifting beast!

  2. Oh man I loved this post! I've got to admit, when I first saw the chair, and then the not so hot coffee table, I wasn't sure where you were going with it. But the mood board totally converted me and proved your decor-visionary-awesomeness skills. Now I want to stain something in a nice dark gray!

    Earl Grey – feel free to stop by, and maybe even say "hello!"

  3. sudha

    cane is timeless..its sad that wicker (the method of weaving cane) is interchangebly used with rattan or cane.

  4. Krystina

    I'm loving the vibe! And I adore that chair. Excellent choice in deciding to reupholster the chair cushion in navy. Lovely! I wish I knew the first thing about staining a coffee table. Do you have to have a special sander tool or can you just grab sand paper, stain, and a piece of furniture and go at it?

  5. Anna

    I'm feelin' it! espesh that rattan chair with the navy velvet. YES

  6. Shane

    You make it look so easy! I love it to death :)

  7. The Lafer sofa is great! Love the selection of goodies together.

  8. Love the cane chair and the mood board showing your plans…wonderful!!

  9. lurve that chair. morgan is the shit… not that you aren't too, emily:)

  10. LOVE this post. and the dens to make-out in, haha. and the thrift finds. so true, it is a crapshoot, but man, when you do come across something rad, NOTHING BETTER!

I didn’t want to be a vampire but was forced into it so I’m struggling with my vampire powers and not wanting to turn the girl I love into a vampire. The script is really great and has a wonderful storyline. It’s been fun. The creator, Linda Andersson, has a really cool comic strip of Hungry for You that she is going to release soon. It’s sort of a teaser and a way to start the marketing for the project in a bigger level.
