Last year I moved into my first apartment without a roommate. At 24-years-old, I so excited to finally have my own space to do some serious interior decorating! I had complete creative freedom to design my 505-square-foot studio apartment and my first purchase: a lovely pair of mid-century kitchen bar stools.
I ventured out to a few favorite antique furniture stores in Omaha, including McMillan’s Antiques, a vintage chair haven on 50th and Leavenworth. These pair of mismatch 1950’s style seats were patiently waiting for me in the basement, untouched. I knew they would fit perfectly in my living-bedroom.
The art of mismatch is all in the eye of the beholder. With this pair, I matched comfort with funky. My walls and carpet are a boring beige blend, so I needed a pop of color in the room for my own satisfaction. I spent less than $80 on the pair which makes it an even sweeter deal. See how sweet this deal is!
Neo Interior Design enthusiasts may call this furniture style Retro or Danish. It’s what most quote as the Mid-Century Modern style, reflecting a combination of linear architecture and bold fashion statements. It’s all about curves, twists and a pop of color. With this style, you get a flash back into the Frank Lloyd Wright homes and the liberal arts movement of the 50’s and 60’s. Not sure whether this is your style or not? Check out a collection of interior looks from Houzz. I also found a couple of post worth sharing from Pinterest.
Sometimes when you vintage shop you are just browsing. But when you find a treasure, your gut almost jumps out at you saying, “This is the one!” I didn’t hesitate or ignore that feeling and came home with the most comfy seats a girl could imagine! You can see the setting I have and pin it on Pinterest if you love it too!
