Series | Mixin’ New & Vintage

Have you been collecting vintage furniture as you move from apartment to apartment? And now you’re ready to buy that pristine, fresh from the designer, modern piece and you’re not sure how to mix your old with your new? The combination of vintage and new makes for the most interesting spaces. You might not want a vintage couch, but pair a Gus* sectional with a Danish modern coffee table and you’ve given your space a mid-century feel with the right amount of new modern. Maybe all you can currently afford is build it yourself modern, make it your own with vintage accessories, think clock, teak table tray or poster. In a four-week series MID is teaming up with Mod Livin’ to show you how it’s done — you don’t have to trash your vintage treasures when you add new pieces to your living space. Gain inspiration from how we would mix and match. And when you’re ready to find your perfect combination of old and new head to Mod Livin’ and take a look around.
