Trend Forecast: Hip Vintage Furniture and Decor
Introducing the latest style trend at Nebraska Furniture Mart – Hip Vintage. It’s a little bit modern industrial, a touch of antique book store with rustic and traditional style pieces mixed in.
This stylish, eclectic look features dark and medium shades of leather and wood. By choosing to use furniture and accessories that appear to be vintage, upcycled, or reclaimed, you can create a living space that is instantly abundant with character and comfort. Your guests and family will immediately feel a sense of contentment in your home.
Are your eyes instantly drawn to the shimmering silver pieces? Some of the accents pieces and décor items used are mercury glass which was first made popular in the early part of the 1900’s and is fashionable once again. Some mercury glass pieces appear to be old and weathered while some look brand new. What is mercury glass? Present day mercury glass doesn’t contain mercury. It’s a clear glass that’s double-walled and one of the walls is coated with a silvering formula that’s inserted through a small hole and then sealed up with a plug. Check out NFM.com for more than 60 mercury glass items to choose from.
To add an antique book store vibe to your room, place a lamp on each end table and add some old books with leather coverings. You can arrange these books throughout the room, neatly stacked on the floor, lined up on shelves, or even attach them to the wall like we’ve done. Don’t have any old books? You can purchase sets of storage boxes that look just like old books. The book boxes are perfect for stowing paper, pens, games, remote controls, iPads, e-Readers or whatever else you want to keep handy but hidden. NFM’s selection of book boxes are a super deal and fit in with our Hip Vintage trend perfectly.
Don’t forget your floors – vibrant area rugs with bold patterns add interest and fun pops of color. Be sure to include in a few toss pillows that coordinate with the rugs to add even more color touches. The splashes of color will soften the look of the dark furniture and create an even more inviting place to sit and relax.
