Vintage Chairs In Contemporary Interiors

Mixing furniture of different periods creates a dynamic, personal, lived-in atmosphere, far from a standard catalogue look. Mid-century pieces collected over the years, brought back from travels or inherited from the family, speak volumes about the owner’s personality and add a lot more depth and interest to the décor.

Here are some of our favourite combinations.
