We savor nothing more than a marriage of old and new pieces in interior decorating and design.  The combination of modern and vintage high end furniture makes for uniquely extraordinary decor.  We found that this enchanting modern Danish dining set gives one a sense of European nostalgia with its simple, slim lines and curves, and smooth textures.

The vintage accent chairs within this living area lend a coziness to the room with its natural tones among the mostly black and white scheme.  This subtle distinction of color brilliantly merges together the past with the present.

These two delightful vintage accent chairs have all the charisma of modern chic with a hint of history.  The bold orange chairs balance out the modern artwork, and also provides a lovely contrast to the natural wood floors and stone mantle.

With its graceful lines, sophisticated button-tufted cushions and gold accents, this vintage-inspired modern chair reflects a dreamy elegance of a past era - an impressive piece that demands a quiet appreciation.

Vintage pieces can make a lasting impression.  As shown in the dining space above, the gorgeous modern-style, vintage sideboard creates a cozy warmth that's inviting yet luxurious.

Mid-Century Sideboard by Heritage Henredon.

This attractive vintage Mid-Century Sideboard by Henredon realizes a modernist's dream.  Gold-accented fixtures and a natural wood-grain finish make for a classy, handsome piece.
There’s little doubt that there are limitless possibilities to mixing and matching vintage with modern pieces when designing your home.  We love the idea of fusing together the past with the present and the visual surprise of off-the-beaten-path combinations, as it will without doubt bring a distinguished charm into any home.
