As you can probably surmise from the content of most of my posts, I’m a big contemporary design fan – with a dash of rustic charm thrown in for good measure.
However, antiques and vintage designs, while always somewhat popular, are making a huge push this season. You’re sure to see more and more Old World pieces like these neoclassical chests of drawers from Jonathan Charles. “Italian neoclassical design is a testament to innovative craftsmanship, something I wanted to reacquaint modern society with,” says CEO Jonathan Sowter. As soon as I saw these pieces, I thought of the possibilities of mixing them in with modern designs. The chest on the left just screams, “Use me as a television console!” to me (inspired no doubt by Emily Henderson’s recent makeover).
What do you think? Have you been seeing more antique or classical pieces in stores? Would you ever mix styles?
