With its boxy contours, wood accents and cool colour ways, the modern vintage look emphasizes comfort without sacrificing style. It works in a variety of settings, from tiny condos to sprawling homes. Pair a sectional with an armchair for customizable seating suited to entertaining or lounging. Keep clutter at bay by choosing a coffee table with built-in storage. Try these design tips and styling tricks to ace this on-trend decorating style.

Design tip:

Start with a statement sofa. This robin’s egg blue sectional certainly does the trick! Let the furniture pop by layering neutral tones around it. Think: Natural wood, plus creams, greys and blacks.

Styling trick:

You can never go wrong with a neutral armchair. This one complements the robin’s egg blue sectional, which is the “hero” furniture in this room. Refresh the armchair each season by adding a cushion in an on-trend pattern or print.

Add ambience:

Light up your living room with a gourd lamp. This curvy, period-perfect table lamp reinforces the modern-vintage aesthetic.

Try this:

Use a small-scale coffee table as a bench in the entryway. Like the other furnishings in this modern vintage space, this piece has tapered wooden legs. Leggy furniture promotes an airy, expansive look, making a room seem larger. (It’s also easier to catch every last dust bunny!)
