Chairish Design | A Vintage Modern Living Room

October 28, 2014

Chairish Design by Janeane Pittman Interior Design

I was honored when I was contacted by Chairish to create a design based on select pieces from their curated collections of pre-loved furnishings and decor.  Using vintage items in a new and creative way to make a unique space is something I just love to do and Chairish is always on my list of vendors to check out when I am creating a design for a client.

When I opened the vintage collection they sent me, the first two things that caught my eye was a Golden Velour Three Seat Sofa and a Vintage Brass Lamp in Glossy Midnight Blue.  The sofa has wonderful sweeping lines across the back and arms and a color I knew that I could work off of.  And the lamp, well, I just love a good pillar lamp with unusual finishes.

That golden hue spurred on a color palette of gold, pink, and turquoise with touches of black and white for impact.  Mixing in modern elements like iron and marble side tables and an acrylic and brass cocktail table, along side the vintage pieces, it elevates the design to something truly special.  I even added in a low tufted footstool to act as a dog bed because I am always finding that most of my clients have one in the family.

Overall, the nature of this room is whimsical and dramatic with a rug, yes a rug, on the wall to act as a backdrop to an ornately framed mirror.  And pillows, lots and lots of pillows.  All the different textures and patterns play off of each other making the space lively and spirited.  This design also incorporates a touch of bohemian and ethnic flair contrasting against contemporary styles.

If you are interested in having a space in your home done with a vintage modern flair, I would love to create a one-of-a-kind look for you and your family to incorporate your lifestyle.  Please email me at janeane@janeanepittman.com or send me a comment on this post so we can set up a time to chat.  For more information on my services, please visit my web site at janeanepittman.com.
