    When planning the guest bedroom for the owners of a log-and-stone home in the Colorado Rockies, Vail-based designer Melissa Greenauer wanted to create a cozy seating area where visitors could relax, read and soak up the spectacular mountain views. She turned—as she often does—to 1stdibs.com, a designer’s dream resource of antique- and contemporary-furniture dealers in markets from Paris to Los Angeles. Launched by Web entrepreneur Michael Bruno in 2001, the site features seating, lighting, tables, mirrors and other furnishings that are high-end and unique, says Greenauer. Prices are negotiable, she adds, and most designers purchase directly from dealers. For her clients’ guest bedroom, she found two Art Deco chairs with soft rolled arms, a pair of Murano glass sconces and pendant fixtures that lend the space the warm, inviting look she was after. Visitors to the jam-packed site can search for furnishings by city, country of origin, century, dealer, category, designer or price, then store items for purchase in a virtual stockroom. New items are posted every Wednesday.
