When you’re thinking about incorporating vintage furniture into your office décor, it takes balance and harmony. With balance and harmony, you can create an office which is both welcoming and comfortable.
But, this doesn’t mean that you have to split the furniture 50/50 down the middle with fifty percent of contemporary furniture and fifty percent vintage furniture. If you do this, then your office will look like a mishmash of poorly designed furniture. You need to pick a style which is dominant and then mix the second style into it with decorative accessories; or smaller pieces.
Another point is not to clutter up your office with senseless accessories. If you want your vintage pieces to show up, don’t cover them then with picture frames or other needless cluttering items. Most of the time when decorating, accessories are grouped in threes too. So, you a chair, an end table and desk that match. But with incorporating mixed pieces, you count each piece as one and then find decorative accessories to tie the three pieces together with the whole office.
Incorporating vintage pieces into your office
One way to incorporate a vintage piece is to have it updated. You could change the upholstery, give it a new coat of paint or change the color of the stain. If you have vintage accessories, you can update the look with a unique modern pattern then and unconventional bright colors. Or, you could let a professional designer combine the two styles in the office and fuse them into one the new look.
