Vintage Furniture Reborn....

Vintage is a HOT word these days when it comes to the world of interior design. TV shows such as Madmen and films like The Great Gatsby have encouraged the 21st century to look back to the past for design inspiration.

Should you be fortunate enough to find an authentic piece from the  60's , 70's or beyond, it usually does need to be updated to function in your home. I recently discovered Recloth Modern, a unique furniture showroom which specializes in redesigned vintage furniture, custom upholstery and accessories to match.

 I don't have to tell you that this teak chair is FABULOUS...it's all about the Mid-Century period these days and this chair is a wonderful example of this period.

The fabric you choose to recover the furniture you have will determine the feeling and style direction..imagine this sofa in a clean and contemporary white space ..perfect for creating a 'curated' space.

Recloth Modern has skilled trades (a commodity much in demand!) who are familiar with period and vintage furnishings. If you're going to breath new life into one of these pieces, please take it to a professional who can not only give it the respect it deserves, but will add value to the piece as well.

 The store has a fresh and modern feeling..no creaky floors and musky smells to endure when shopping for your vintage look...
