chairinspireDecorating with vintage pieces can sometimes be a challenge. You want to incorporate a particular look, but you aren’t sure how to get it. Or you want to use a vintage piece – but you aren’t show how to use it.

We rounded up a few fabulous ideas from Pinterest for how to incorporate vintage chairs into your home. Here are our favorites:

1. Use different colors, sizes & styles of chairs at your dining room table.
We just love this look. It is eclectic but if the chairs are selected properly and with a creative eye, it creates an eye-popping look and an interesting focal point.

2. Reupholstering a piece that looks dated. 
Sometimes what makes a vintage piece look “old” or “outdated” is just the worn out fabric or no-longer-stylish print. Recovering or reupholstering a dated piece in a modern fabric gives it a fresh new look fit for any stylish home. We love a floral or stripe print fabric!

3. Fluffing up your piece with coordinating pillows. 
We have a whole blog post about how pillows can give a room new life, read it here.

4. Using a vintage armchair in an unexpected way. 
Like as a desk chair, or as an accent to to a display of wall art – especially if the colors coordinate.
