Vintage is a lot more than a passing trend, it’s a way of curating your home using styles from the past that have stood the test of time and will continue to always be ‘in fashion’.
Many homes try to be modern or minimalist, but if you want your home to stand out and look completely unique, vintage is the way to go.
If you want to decorate your living room to look vintage, here are some of our best vintage living room ideas to help you get started.

Vintage pieces are easy to come by, whether you purchase them online or go digging through your local charity shop, the opportunities are endless.
Vintage Living Room Ideas
Get ready to bring all of the vintage vibes to your home with our list of vintage living room ideas that we think would look perfect in your home.
Here are 5 ways that you can incorporate vintage furniture to create a space that all your guests will be amazed by.
1. Curved Furniture
Curved furniture is very 70’s and can bring an interesting edge to your living room. Place an elegantly curved sofa in the centre of your room to catch people’s attention, then take it one step further by using other curved furniture pieces to accessorise your space.
This style of furniture provides a fun and funky atmosphere that can’t be achieved with modern furniture, you could also play with different fabrics and materials to achieve the ultimate vintage fantasy.
2. Luxury Coffee Tables
Never underestimate the power of a luxury coffee table in your living room! These statement pieces will quickly provide your space with serious style and an unmatched vintage vibe.
Whether you’d prefer a 70s-inspired cherry red table, or a large console table, luxury coffee tables are a must-have in any vintage living room.
3. Don’t be Scared of Colour
When you look back at vintage living rooms of the past, it’s pretty uncommon to see minimal, neutral rooms – so don’t be afraid to inject some colour into your space.
Painting the walls, adding in bright furniture, or choosing a fun pattern to accessorise your space can go a long way in creating a bespoke, vintage feel.
We love playing around with colour and making all of our rooms feel more lively – we think you should do the same!
4. Use Mid-Century Elements
Mid Century modern is a very big trend in interior design at the moment, and it shows no sign of going anywhere.
This style – that comes from the 30s and 50s – is characterised by simple, functional wooden pieces. It’s easy to add these elements into your living room in the form of coffee tables or console tables.
5. Luxury Lighting
Our final tip is to add some luxury vintage lighting into your living room. Create a whole new atmosphere in your space by adding a new vintage shade to your lamp, or updating your bulbs to look more vintage.
