Do you dream of chic vintage decor day and night? Yeah, us too.
Thanks to renowned interior designer Ken Fulk and Chairish—the premier online marketplace for all things vintage decor and furniture—your antique fantasies can become a reality. The San Francisco-based interiors guru and the Chairish team recently took on the famous Brimfield Flea Market to dig up a collection of fabulous finds. Treasure-obsessed shoppers can shop Fulk’s favorite picks through an exclusive sale with Chairish that launches on Thursday, September 14, at 6AM PST.
If you’ve ever wanted to peek the mind of a top designer, this is a can’t-miss chance to curate your home according to one of the bests.
As one of the world’s most revered flea market destinations, taking on Brimfield is a serious (and seriously fun) opportunity to discover countless hidden gems. For Fulk, it’s the charming details and touching stories that each found object brings to the table that makes the hunt worth it. “There are all sorts of legends about priceless items or masterpiece paintings being found buried in a corner of unsuspecting dealers tent, but for me it’s the little things that tend to mean the most,” the designer said.
His number one rule for flea market shopping? Buy what you know you can’t live without. “In my mind, it’s never a good idea to chase trends. I always shop for what I love and know that it will find a home,” Fulk explained.
While known for his spirited and exuberant style, the sale features a range of items fitting for everyone—from a mod pine lamp by Hans Agne Jacobsen to a cool bakelite carving set. In addition to the interior designer’s Brimfield finds, vintage-obsessed buyers will also have the opportunity to shop Fulk’s favorite Chairish items, which the designer has curated exclusively for the event.

Interested in paying a visit to Brimfield yourself next time around? Before attempting to bargain your way through the iconic flea market, consider the tips and tricks of a seasoned pro who knows how to successfully navigate the tents. “Make sure you have a plan as to how you will collect your items,” Fulk suggests. “There are porters who can help get items back to your car, but make sure your eyes aren’t too big for your trunk!”
It’s safe to say that soccer mom vans and monstrous pickup trucks are definitely welcomed, if not encouraged.
