It's July and you're probably spending lots of time in your garden. Pairing antiques with your garden gives a vintage look to your landscape. Rustic furniture of natural materials and organic shapes became popular in camps and gardens in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This sturdy chair was made in the 1890s from bent twigs and roots. It sold at a recent Kamelot auction in Philadelphia for $1,230.

Don't ignore backyards and garages at house sales; be on the lookout for other interesting furniture, architectural pieces and garden statuary. Search for prices of all kinds of garden furnishings here.
