Why Your Room Needs a Pair of Vintage Armchairs

Three may be a magic number when it comes to design, but two’s definitely company when it comes to armchairs. A pair of chairs is a classically stylish motif, whether they face a sofa or flank a side table as if having a private tête-à-tête.

When it comes to the age of the chairs, there’s something about vintage designs — often low-slung, shapely and stand-alone elegant — that just works. Whether you call it pre-loved, secondhand or vintage, it’s no wonder that old (but not antique) furniture has taken on a new status as desirable, fashionable and obtainable. Upholstered pieces usually also require re-covering, meaning the end product is pleasingly unique. Interior designers will use a pair of armchairs to add flair and contrast to a room, meshing old and new for a custom finish. Take a look at these appealing examples to see how it’s done, then try this simple styling trick at home.
