If buying vintage was a quirky hobby for some a few years ago, it’s now blossomed into a full-fledged design trend. And nothing gives a room personality and charisma like a well-placed vintage chair.

This painted wrought-iron dinner chair from Todd Alexander Romano pairs clean lines with organic embellishments. It’s the perfect mix of classic and quirky; a set of these around a contemporary dining table would provide an interesting (not to mention pretty) juxtaposition of style.

And speaking of juxtapositions, I love the way this Art Deco-inspired armchair offsets an otherwise clean and modern bedroom, especially that bold, graphic art on the wall! (Hats off to NYC-based interior designer Paula Caravelli for putting this lovely space together.)

A neoclassical armchair, reupholstered with dynamic patterned fabric and set against bold contemporary art is an unpredictable and striking choice. Thanks to the mostly neutral palette in this room, the designer was able to seamlessly blend vintage pieces with more contemporary components.

And finally, here’s an interesting take on a classically modern armchair. I’m sure we’ve all seen versions of this chair in mid-century homes, but never with such interesting patchwork upholstery. Small innovations like this can turn a chic-but-unassuming chair into the coveted focal point of the room.

When in doubt, don’t be afraid to bring a vintage chair into your home; just like cookies from Grandma’s recipe, or those hip peep-toe pumps you found in your mom’s closet, it’s guaranteed to add bit of charm and style to an otherwise contemporary ensemble.

    The only way to blend vintage pieces with more contemporary components for a perfect decor is a neutral palette and then go with it.
