We love nothing more than a clever marriage of old and new pieces in interior design.  The combination of modern and vintage high end furniture makes for uniquely memorable decor.  For instance, we found that this irresistible Modern Danish dining set gives the sense of European nostalgia with its clean, slim lines, smooth curves and textures.

The vintage accent chairs within this living area lend a warmth to the room with its golden natural tones among the predominately black and white scheme.  This subtle contrast of color brilliantly melds together the past with the present.

These two charming vintage accent chairs have all the flair of modern chic with a hint of history.  The bold orange chairs complement the modern artwork, and at the same time provides a stunning contrast to the natural wood floors and cobble-stoned mantle.

With its sleek lines, and sultry button-tufted cushions and gold accents, this vintage-inspired modern chair reflects a romantic elegance of a bygone era – an unforgettable piece that demands a quiet admiration.

Vintage pieces can truly make an unforgettable impression.  As shown in the dining area above, the gorgeous modern-style, vintage sideboard lends the space a rich warm hue that’s as inviting as is elegant.

Mid-Century Sideboard by Heritage Henredon.

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.

As you can see, there are endless possibilities to mixing and matching vintage with modern designs and pieces into your home.  We love this concept of melding the past together with the present, the visual surprise in unexpected combinations, and the hint of effortless design in this approach, as it will inevitably bring a distinguished charm to any home.
