The look for 2014 is vintage and retro! Vintage furniture is making a comeback and in a BIG way! Vintage and limited edition pieces are highly sought after for the home and this year designers are focusing on nostalgia and sentiment to guide interiors. Instead of settling on one fixed look, designers are choosing versatile, neutral bases and using big impact accent furniture and occasional seating to update and transform decors.
Many designers feel that modern, minimalist interiors are often lacking warmth and comfort and have returned to tradition, giving old, classic furniture a new edge. We all want and need our homes to feel comfortable, and so this return to traditional styles has meant that designs from eras gone by can be revisited and updated. 2014 will see some fabulous revival collections and redesigned vintage furniture pieces on the high street.
Accent furniture is a perfect way of introducing a touch of ‘vintage’ into your existing interior and you can add those much needed splashes of colour with retro accessories. This fresh and lively trend will invigorate your home and your interior will have that homely feel that we all desire after a long day at work.
Key vintage furniture items, such as retro seating and painted furniture, are ideal choices when searching for these focal accent pieces. Why not update a dreary corner with a new leather chair? No longer are modern, clean styles fashionable, instead look for a leather chair that has the appearance of having been passed down over the years. Worn in, gorgeous real leather will look warm and inviting and don’t forget that the beauty of leather is that it makes you want to touch it…so you’ll find yourself instantly drawn to your new seat. Natural woods and lighter wood tones are also making a comeback from the dark ages of previous trends. Natural wood furniture will give a room a fresh feel, so try incorporating a chair design that has a wooden frame or add a rustic side table next to your chair to brighten things up.
If leather is not for you then add an animal printed accent. Animal prints are still fashionable in 2014, so why not introduce a retro styled occasional chair that has been upholstered in a trendy animal fabric? Animal prints or natural hides in small doses will bring an interior to life and if it’s tasteful it won’t run the risk of overkill!
Give the living room or even your hallway some vintage storage and introduce a painted chest of drawers. 2014 will see painted furniture everywhere and designers have taken classic styled pieces and transformed them by painting them in more than one colour. Chests with multi coloured drawers and different styled handles are very fashionable as are rustic coffee tables and painted trunks. Every vintage interior needs a trunk and your guests will be guessing what wonderful items you have tucked away inside!
