Old and New Furniture, mixing it together | Styled by The Home Stylist

Mixing old and new furniture can work really well

Some of our clients ask if it’s ok to mix family antiques with more contemporary pieces. The answer is a resounding yes! Mixing up the age of your furniture can make the old less staid, and the new a little more interesting. It also adds texture, and therefore depth to the space.
It’s often impractical and costly to deck out your whole home in vintage items, and it’s not to everyone’s taste. On the other hand, having a house full of new items sometimes feels a little soulless. It’s great to have pieces that have history and sentimental value, but it’s just as good to add a little modern interest, even quirkiness, with contemporary pieces.
