Decorating with Craigslist-Vintage Men's Club Inspiration

Inspired by the Down Town Association in Manhattan where Joanna Goddard was married, I put together a clubby, Anglophile room using only pieces available today on Craigslist, all for around $500.
Although I adore this look (Freemans Restaurant and Beekman's Hotel get it right, too) it's best when not taken too seriously.
If I were really designing this room, I would get a little cheeky and assemble a gallery wall of paint-by-number ships or regal pooches above the Chesterfield sofa.

Chinese red lacquered campaign cabinet ($50)...I would group orchids and blue and white Chinese porcelain on top of it.

Vintage green leather Chesterfield, the centerpiece of a clubby room ($200)

Vintage Persian rug, suitably faded and worn ($200)

Antique dresser ($100)...I would pile it with books and curiosities, maybe a ship-in-a-bottle and a lamp!

Antique Windsor chairs ($50)

A paint-by-number gallery wall example:

Dude. I kind of want this room.
