  4. In the living room, vintage references and industrial touches
| Designbest editorial staff


n this living room, retro fifties’ furniture and industrial pieces come together: a vintage feel with a contemporary touch. Armchairs with wide armrests take centre stage and sartorial fabrics reference, with a touch of class, times gone by. There’s also a smaller armchair, upholstered in a quirky and fashionable hound’s-tooth print. What’s more, several minimalist pieces are dotted around the room and if you go for the colour graphite, they will undoubtedly add an elegant touch to the entire room. All this, for a living room in excellent taste. 

Our must-haves

Armchairs upholstered in fabric.

Contemporary renditions of iconic fifties’ silhouettes, they reference the style of bygone areas and add an underlining subtle elegance.

A coffee table with a rounded edge.

This is a lightweight piece in dark timber with a thin top and rounded edge. This is piece is perfect for a vintage touch, subtle and not over the top. 


Our style notes

Small armchair upholstered in a hound’s-tooth print.

Ironic, fun and extremely elegant. This print will immediately give a vibe to tired upholstery.

Multi-light bulb lamp.

This one is a stylized version of flower bouquet, it almost looks like a sculpture. It adds a solemn touch to any room.
