The rise in vintage furniture is apparent as more and more people want to incorporate a vintage look into a modern home. It's a winning combination. Below we've put together some of the top ways that you can strategically incorporate vintage furniture into your modern home design.

An art deco chest of drawers or dressing table is a staple piece that can be used throughout the home in a variety of ways. Traditionally, we would find them in the bedroom - and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that, they will look fantastic and they are practical. However, try thinking outside the box when it comes to incorporating these classic pieces of furniture into other areas of a modern home. Dressing tables and chests of drawers can be a great place to store things in the living room, and you can use them as a stand for your TV or to display some classic art pieces.

One of the most striking ways to incorporate vintage furniture into your modern home design is through the use of coffee tables and dining chairs. Mid-century coffee tables often combine different materials such as wood, metal and glass, so they don't look out of place when mixed with more modern furniture. You can also create a truly modern, eclectic design in your dining room by mixing mid-century dining chairs in with modern ones.

The use of accessories and lighting is an easy and effective way of combing the traditional and modern era. A modern home looks wonderful with subtle hints of vintage style. This can be achieved by incorporating vases, paintings, figurines or even classic chandeliers. 

Bronze bookends, a large metal framed mirror or vintage art are eye-catching additions that blend perfectly with a modern or vintage inspired room.
