I have a soft spot in my heart for antique furniture. Back in the day, it was made so beautifully with quality materials, and it was made to last forever. Now days, a lot of furniture is made to be disposable and just doesn’t have the same beauty. I try to incorporate antique furniture into my home where I can– I refinished my great grandfather’s mahogany dresser, and it’s one of my favorite pieces in my home.
Instead of trying to paint old furniture to make it “modern”, I love refinishing the wood (or leaving aged as-is) to embrace the true beauty of the piece. Antique pieces can be the inspiration for the whole room, or mixed with newer items for a modern look– its all in the styling! Keep scrolling for some of my favorite takes on beautiful antique pieces.
