Everything seems to come back again. I mean, I was shopping with my son and we saw an MTV t-shirt while they blasted "funky cold medina” - I couldn't lie about this! The late 80’s and 90’s were interesting years for style, but some good things did stick around.
I've created a little old-meets-new mood board recognizing vintage style seating because it seems this style is coming back around as well. Personally, I love how vintage seating can be mixed and matched. No matter how many times you may change up your space, chances are, you can find a way to work in these pieces.
1. First of all, if you don't see the beauty in this couch then we can't be friends... It has all around style and comfort. That color is classic! I love a good camel colored sofa.
If you’re lucky enough to find this beauty at a garage sale, please don't pass her up! I've actually stumbled upon a new site that sells vintage and new high-end furnishings. You can find this Ralph Lauren Vintage Couch among other things at Sotheby's Home. Did you know they had a store for furniture? It’s pretty awesome; leave it to Sotheby's to continue to give us classic pieces.
2. This gorgeous ottoman is also vintage. I found this posted online but you can find a similar one on annieselke.com. Or, just keep your eye out at estate sales and consignment shops. If you find an old tapestry, you can have an ottoman recovered for a one of a kind, colorful ottoman.
3. I had to throw in a little modern for you. This is a new chair that nods to a midcentury style. You can find this at Wayfair.
4. This color is West-highland White from Sherwin Williams. You know I love my neutrals, and this color would go fantastic in a vintage-inspired room. Because it is so light, it lets your focus settle on the seating. It is an earthy tone, which compliments the overall vibe of the room.
5. Would it be vintage without a pop of color? This stunning blue is Gibraltar from Sherwin Williams. The deep, dark color, allows your unique, vintage seating to shine.
Camel and blue pair together so well, I wouldn’t want to put another color on the walls!
6. We all need a little succulent don't we? Adding plants to a space is a great way to add natural color and as a bonus, you have natural air filtration! I liked this planter and stand as it has a bit of a 70's vibe.
Succulents are also low maintenance, so you don’t have to worry about them dying on you. They also thrive well in rocks, which tie in to the earthy tones of this mood board.
7. Tapestries were definitely popular in the 70’s, but have graduated from hippie wall hangings to intricate, vintage wall décor.
This one specifically has some tasteful fringe and neutral colors so the texture can be the star of the show. I would suggest hanging it all by its own and letting it be a focal point for the room.
By mixing in contemporary colors, some current pieces, and of course, plants, you can curate the perfect sitting room with nods to vintage style without looking frumpy.
Don't discount timeless pieces in your home. As I said before, everything comes back around!
