Bringing Antiques into a Modern Home September 20, 2017 – Posted in: Design, General, Uncategorized – Tags: antique, design, furniture, interiors, modern, Vintage
The latest furniture trends are driving us more and more to introduce antique and vintage pieces into contemporary spaces. This leaves many questioning how to incorporate these elements appropriately without appearing tacky or overboard. Here are some tips on how to add a touch of yesteryear to your home the right way.
1. Mix and Match:
Industrial vintage/antique is the new black. That is, a carefully constructed blend of modern or industrial design and choice antique or vintage furnishings/pieces is the way to go. For example, a vintage leather sofa can add a touch of warmth to an industrial loft apartment, while a weathered wooden coffee table adds instant texture to a modern Scandinavian-style home.
2. Re-purpose, refurbish, reuse:
Think twice before you toss that aging armchair, sofa or writing desk. Pieces that may be weathered or even falling apart can be revamped in order to breathe new life into a minimalistic space by adding a classic touch that never goes out of style.
3. Subtlety is key:
If a statement piece is not your style, accessories can be a way to incorporate an antique or vintage touch to your modern space without overpowering the overall design. Think lighting, frames, paintings, mirrors, and quirky, unique pieces.
