Interior Design Ideas: Blending Vintage with Modern Decor

We find nothing more charming than a creative marriage of old and new pieces in interior design.  The mixture of modern and vintage high end furniture makes for remarkable and memorable decor.  For instance, we found this alluring Modern Danish dining set carries with it a hint of European nostalgia with its clean, slim profile, and refined curves.

The vintage accent chairs in this living area imparts a warmth to the room with its natural wooden tones among the predominately black and white scheme.  This understated color contrast cleverly fuses together the past and present.

These vintage accent chairs have all the charm of contemporary style with a glint of fondness for eras past.  The bright orange chairs complement the modern artwork, and at the same time provides a playful contrast to the natural wooden floors and stone mantle.

Sultry curves, button-tufted cushions and golden accents make this vintage-inspired modern chair a striking piece.  It reflects a romantic elegance of a bygone era - an exquisite design that demands a quiet admiration.

Vintage pieces can definitely make an extraordinary impression.  As shown above within the dining area, the stunning modern-style, vintage sideboard gives the space a warmth that's as inviting as is elegant.

This beautiful vintage Mid-Century Sideboard by Henredon fulfills a modernist's dream.  Gold-accented fixtures and a natural wood-grain finish make for a stylish, handsome piece.

With infinite possibilities to mixing and matching vintage with modern designs into your home, you may be pleasantly surprised at how wonderfully old and new can coexist.  We admire the concept of melding the past together with the present, the unexpected visual combinations, and the graceful design choices in this approach, as it will certainly bring a distinguished charm to any home.
