Funny but when I was growing up in Newark, NJ, using old furniture to decorate the apartment was simply called "making due with what you have". My mom's "romantic country" style of decor combined "vintage" pieces with the new to make us a cozy home, which earned her major compliments from the aunties.
My own personal style is very modern. I love sleek angular pieces with clean lines but because of my time spent trailing behind my mom in vintage shops, antiquing, and hitting flea markets wherever we traveled, I have a serious adoration of vintage furniture just like my mom. Modern furniture with that futuristic feel from the '50s is what I LIVE for.
But apparently mom & I aren't the only ones. Read about this new trend of repurposing vintage furniture and accessories for modern homes right here:
