Antique Furniture with a Modern Twist

With clean, sleek and modern furniture being the current trend, those with different styles can feel left out. But if your preference is furniture that’s more antique, you can have it both ways. These pieces can add beautiful conversation pieces for each and every space, while also staying on-trend.

This antique table adds so much character and charm to the space. With a unique design and intricate detail, the table adds a pop of color and a one-of-a-kind piece to bring the room together. Benches on the side create clean lines that add a subtle modern twist. Add a decorative lamp and some miscellaneous decorations on top to complete the look.

For more of a juxtaposition between the antique and modern styles, look toward bold representations of each. The mural on the wall is of Michelangelo’s painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. As one of the most famous pieces of classical art in the world, it adds a beautiful antique look to the space. Pair it with a modern couch and coffee table for a beautiful composition of both styles.

For a more antique look with less modern accents, look to rustic furniture, walls and floors. This space has an old world charm, and the cabinet’s bold yet faded color add to this style. The rugged wooden floors consisting of different hues contribute to the rustic charm as well. Add greenery and a beautiful mirror to bring the space fully together. The cabinet below has more modern accents to balance the antique style. The bold, retro lamps and decorative wallpaper create an eccentric character to the room.
