One man’s trash is another man’s treasure… Never over look vintage or antique pieces when interior decorating.
I always find rare or one of a kind quirky pieces for myself & my clients at places like the Mills Markets or The Smith Street Bazaar or Kyo.
A mix of vintage pieces & new pieces gives a home depth & individuality.
Vintage furniture can be repurposed, for instance this trunk would make a fabulous coffee table or blanket box.
I particularly like buying vintage furniture and having it reupholstered.
Reupholstering & changing the finish on your existing furniture is a great alternative to buying brand new items.
These dining chairs I recently had done by Surfcoast Upholstery are unrecognisable after their make-over.
Before & After
I also like to hunt for special pieces for myself & my clients, items of value at a bargin.
Such as this beautiful & rare pieceof 1950’s Barsony I discovered recently.
A piece such as this could be used in a contempoary, modern or tradional home.
