100 Vintage Furniture Decor Designs

From Vinyl Record Lighting to Vintage Suitcase Speakers

— August 19, 2013 — Eco
It may be ironic, but one of the best ways to update a modern home design scheme is to incorporate vintage furniture decor finds.

These pieces need not continue to collect dust and get rusty as they sit on the shelves or take up space in the living room, there are a multitude of designs out there that take old-fashioned elements and turn them into contemporary and useful items. Old suitcases become vanity sets, cat beds and even shelving units while retro vinyl records get repurposed as lamps, dishware and clocks just to name a few.

Classically traditional design aesthetics are what make vintage furniture decor designs attractive to the modern consumer who wants to reminisce.
