The saying goes, “everything old is new again,” and that’s certainly true when it comes to fashion and home décor. Year after year, we see vintage furniture trends from decades’ past come back in style in a big way. Let’s take a look at some of the 2017 furniture trends and talk about how you can get the look whether you’re buying vintage furniture or new furniture inspired by classic looks.
1) Plush Sofas
Modern minimalism has taken a backseat to plush, luxurious sofas yet again. The Chesterfield 18th century classic sofa with overstuffed cushions and deep button tufting is gracing furniture showrooms across the country. Our Newcastle Platinum Sofa is a modern take on the classic design with button tufting along the inside of the arms and nail head detailing.
2) Mid-Century Modern Accent Chairs
The mid-century modern vintage furniture look of the forties and fifties became very popular again when Mad Men, a hit AMC television show, first aired in 2007 and since then has remained a favorite among designers. Wood details, clean lines and neutral colors make these pieces fit well in most homes even if they are a stand-alone accent. Our Olson Accent Chair is a great example of this classic look!
3) Oak Furniture
Furniture makers in the Arts & Crafts period of the late 1800s to early 1900s, most often used Oak as their wood of choice. These pieces were often lightly varnished or stained to allow the natural beauty of the wood to shine. Oak pieces are in again, especially in the dining room. Our Ashburn Oak Dining Set has that old world feel with a modern twist.
