Such a Lush

Nothing against Craig, but shopping the man’s list is like searching for a needle in a friggin’ haystack.

Or, in your case, a Mies original in a mountain of tacky floral granny chairs, used and abused mattresses, and junky Ektorps.

L.A.-based midcentury obsessive Melanie Carlson felt your pain — and sensed there must be a better way.

So she launched Lushpad, an online vintage and reproduction furniture marketplace, to prove it.

Like a mod, tightly edited version of C-list or eBay, the site connects North American buyers and sellers whose pulses quicken at the site of Barcelona chairs, Eames tables, and Danish modern credenzas.

And skipping the middleman keeps prices lower than those in showrooms, so it’s not just furniture porn.

Plus, unlike that other list, this needle’s free of pricks.
