Antiques & Vintage 101: How to Mix It In

A well-balanced room is styled with objects from across generations. Everyday necessities work with pieces that have stood the test of time to create a thoughtfully designed home. While there's no exact formula for mixing antiques into your work or play space, we've honed in on some tips and tricks.

① Break Tradition

Whether your home was built in 1916 or 2016, you should never feel bound to any period. We love mixing colors and patterns, so styles should be freely mixed as well. This exposed brick room is lit by an original 1910 O.C. White lamp, but the 1950s leather wing-back armchair looks right at home.

② A Little Goes a Long Way

Sometimes all you need is one timeless piece to tie a room together. This attic office features our new Aurora steel desk—whose style hasn’t changed in 60 years—alongside a vintage oak and steel factory stool.

③ Take a Seat

If you need additional seating, look no further than our selection of vintage chairs. We love when a host brings something unique to the table, even if it doesn’t match what's already there. This stunning bungalow dining room features our new High Back dining chairs alongside a pair of 1920s oak and leather armchairs.

④ Go Big

Sometimes, the best way to blend in is to stand out. This show-stopping 5-tier crystal chandelier dates to the 1920s and was recently restored by our talented team of Antiques & Vintage craftspeople.

The more you start mixing, the more you'll begin to curate and develop your style—and we're here to help. For a limited time, all restored lighting, vintage furniture, and antique décor are on sale. Shop our entire collection of Antiques & Vintage online at
