Vintage pieces add character and depth that cannot be imitated by modern mass-produced furniture. Embracing vintage trends in your home does not mean that you must abandon contemporary designs, however.
Many antiques fit well with today’s straight lines, bold colors and attention to detail. Whether you’re looking to make a statement with an ornate, attention-grabbing item or desire a subtle quaint aesthetic, vintage pieces can give a room personality and complexity unmatched by what can be found in the average furniture store.
If you are unsure how to go about incorporating timeless vintage pieces to your home’s decor, here are five tables with vintage charm that will give your home an extra dose of elegance:
