5 Vintage Pieces For A Modern Home

Want to give your home a spring refresh without burning a hole in your pocket? Buying vintage is a thrifty way to find yourself a one-of-a-kind piece, without spending a small fortune at the department store. Markets, online bidding and second-hand stores are filled with pieces which give a vintage edge to a modern home, but what should you choose?

Bar cart

Cocktail or bar carts are absolutely everywhere on Pinterest and Instagram, and for a good reason! Not only are they cheap and cheerful (we once saw one for $25 – what a steal!), but they can also be easily re-vamped to suit the colour scheme of your home.

French armoire

A classic, French armoire looks just like a wardrobe with a vintage twist. Most of them don’t come with much hanging space, so you can store some of your shirts, towels or manchester in this timeless looking piece. If your armoire is looking a little worse for wear, they’re actually really easy to sand-down, paint, and apply a gloss before looking brand new.

Armchair

The plush armchair might feel a little dated if you’re working with an entire set, but one piece for the bedroom or living room is perfect for evoking a feel of classic sophistication. If you’re not happy with the fabric (it can often stain easily), get it reupholstered by a professional.

Wallpaper

It looks like wallpaper is quickly replacing the modern feature wall, and is a great way to spice-up any home. Choose a loud, vibrant colour or print, which will bring some character to the bedroom or living room.

Credenza

Traditionally used as storage for plates and cutlery, the credenza is perfect as a side feature in a hallway, or alternatively storage for the living room. Most classic styles are made of wood and are glossy, but you can always change that after purchasing.
